About A Manic Monday

Changing the world one cross stitch at a time

A Manic Monday was founded in the summer of 2013 with the aim to bring the art of cross stitch back to homes of design enthusiasts all over the world. Hester Gersonius (1984) is the thriving force behind the brand. She quit half her day job at the Amsterdam Museum in 2015 to pursue her dream of being an entrepreneur and personally handles the entire design and production process from her home studio in Amsterdam, in the company of a fluffy white cat named Keyra.

  • Handmade

    Each cross stitch is handmade, using only our favorite high quality materials: Permin of Copenhagen cross stitch fabric, Scanfil organic cotton thread (locally produced in The Netherlands) and acid free museum board.

  • Unique

    Our items are made to order and we love to customize them in order to fit your personal style best. Change the color of the thread, pick out your favorite frame or even have a cross stitch designed especially for you.

  • Fun

    Last but not least, A Manic Monday cross stitches are 100% fun. Combining historic cross stitch pattern with pop culture quotes, they bring a smile to everyone's face.
