I have been stitching nearly my entire life. I started with cross stitch when I was in high school, but soon after college was introduced to other types of needlework - counted canvaswork, blackwork, Hardanger, and more. My stitching journey has involved so many layers.

Often over the years, I couldn't find something I wanted to stitch and began designing on my own. In 2017, I decided that if I like what I was creating, perhaps others would as well and WorksByABC was born. The majority of my designs are cross stitch, taking me back to what I first loved and first drew me to needle and thread. You will also find my blackwork and counted canvaswork designs here.

Why WorksByABC? My initials are ABC - Arlene Beth Cohen
