Instructions for popular Bucilla needle craft kits are included in each individual package. Bucilla's also is a long-time publisher of pattern books. Craft sites such as Etsy and auction sites such as eBay.com often offer vintage Bucilla books.
Bucilla's ability to keep up with crafting trends over the decades is a primary reason the company is so popular among crafters. It has a strong presence both online and in crafting stores, including Michael's and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. When the popularity of pattern books began to wane, Bucilla switched its focus to needlework kits. Now owned by Plaid Enterprises, Bucilla's busiest time of year arrives with the Christmas crafting season. Holiday kits abound for everything from cross-stitch scenes to embellished children's stockings.
