Pagan Needlework

These are the overt­ly pagan designs I’ve found — pagan includ­ing Wic­can and many oth­er paths. The fact that I’ve list­ed a site here does not con­sti­tute an endorse­ment of the designs on it. Some of them are, by my stan­dards, down­right ugly. Oth­ers just aren’t to my tastes — but they are pagan. If you know of a site I’ve missed, please let me know!

  • Caul­dron Crafts spe­cial­izes in pagan and fan­ta­sy designs. They have four free designs avail­able for Samhain, Imbolc, Lugh­nasadh and Mabon.
