General

PixelHobby is a new mini-mosaic craft which is very similar to cross-stitch only it doesn't involve a needle, threads, or fabric! Instead of stitching the pattern, each 'stitch' is a small tile called a 'pixel'. Another plus is that you work right on top of your pattern sheet so it's much easier to follow the pattern. PixelHobby designs can range in size from 4"x5" to any combination of 4"x5" increments. Designs can range from just a few colors up to 300 colors. Framing your finished designs is easy since they're rigid and don't require stretching, etc. like you would with a cross-stitch piece.

Pixels

PixelHobby designs are based upon small, soft plastic tiles called Pixels. Pixels are available in over 300 beautiful colors. The molding process creates a soft plastic tile with a matte finish. The pixel size allows detailed designs to be created without being too intricate - In comparison to cross-stitch, Pixelhobby designs are equivalent to 10 count (10 pixels per inch).

Baseplates

PixelHobby baseplates hold the pixels of a design. A baseplate is 4 inches x 5 inches in size and is made of clear plastic. Baseplates can go together to make up larger designs. Each pixel location on a baseplate provides a small peg onto which a pixel is positioned. No adhesive is necessary to hold a pixel onto a baseplate since a snug fit occurs between the pixel and baseplate peg.

Design Sheets (patterns)

Designs are worked by pulling-off a pixel from a pixel square using tweezers, and then positioning the pixel onto a peg of a baseplate. Design sheets make it very easy to know where to place each pixel of a design because you can see right through the clear baseplate to the pattern below. During assembly, a baseplate is positioned over a design rectangle and then the symbols under it are read to determine what color should be used. A symbol key is shown next to each design rectangle.
