Opus Americanum or "American Work" is fine embroidery worked by hand in fresh, simple designs that beautify your home and world.
We sell cross stitch charts, embroidery kits, and other embroidered items. Mary Emanuel designs and stitches all of the products and is happy to be able to bring the Catholic faith and embroidery together and share it with others. All the designs are inspired by a desire to help restore traditional feminine arts and encourage women and girls to spend time making things with and for friends and family. We want to see an increase in an appreciation for beautiful Catholic things in the home and...everywhere!
Our designs also aim to help educate Catholics about the faith. Many of our designs are inspired by the Blessed Mother and the saints of the Catholic Church.
Stitch the Faith, Keep the Faith!
