2024 All-Star Stitchers Membership!

November 20, 2023

The 2024 All-Star Stitchers membership is the ultimate treat for any cross stitch lover! Be a part of an elite cross stitch club, save time and money, and gain access to lots of exciting members-only luxuries. 

WHAT IS THE ALL-STAR STITCHERS MEMBERSHIP?

Join the membership to become a part of a special cross stitch crew with lots of crafty advantages! For just £45 (GBP), reduced by 20%, members will have access to exclusive benefits:

  • 4 brand new, exclusive PDF patterns (including a Carlos the Caterpillar pattern)
  • Exclusive membership needle minder (worth £9.50)
  • A £10 e-gift voucher
  • Your very own discount code for 10% off products all year-round
  • Lucky Dip entry (win prizes worth over £100!) 
  • Early access to event tickets
  • Early access for stitch-a-long pre-orders
  • Printed welcome pack
  • 3 x members-only online events with Sally (lives will be recorded and a link circulated to members so you'll never miss out!) 
  • 3 x newsletters containing insider info (members are the first know everything!) 

 

The 2024 membership is worth over £120! We really wanted to make the 2024 membership accessible to all of our most loyal customers, so we've crammed as much value in as we can whilst keeping the price as low as possible. 

Our fantastic Facebook community have been asking, and we've listened. We're super excited that a 'Carlos the Caterpillar' pattern will be included in next year's membership!

The Carlos design would make the perfect addition to your CCS wall - impress house guests by hanging the finished design on the wall and letting them know you're a member of a dedicated cross stitch club.

Carlos won't be available to purchase! There's only one way to receive the Carlos pattern - become a 2024 All-Star Stitcher. 

Members will receive 3 additional PDF patterns! That's a mighty 4 members-only patterns in total. These beautiful patterns are still in the works, but they're looking absolutely fantastic so far - the theme of each design will be kept a surprise until the welcome packs are shipped in February 2024. What do you think they could be? Let us know in our Facebook group

In 2023, the All-Star Stitchers' received Magical Forest Fairies, Small Steps Every Day, and Freya the Scandi Fox (shown later on in the blog). 

Lots of you have been asking if Freya the Scandi Fox will be made available to 2024 members. While we're delighted Freya is so popular, and agree that she is absolutely beautiful, Freya the Scandi Fox is exclusive to the 2023 members - the only way to guarantee you won't miss out on a pattern you love is by signing-up.  

Just like the 2023 designs, all designs will be exclusive to the 2024 membership, and won't be made available to non-members! 

Get excited! Your first members-only pattern will be sent straight to your inbox as soon as March 2024, and the 3 other designs (including Carlos the Caterpillar) will follow throughout the year. 

 

A happy little reminder that you're a part of an exclusive club whenever you stitch, members will receive an exclusive All-Star Stitchers magnetic needle minder (pictured above)! Leave the needle minder on your fabric and subtly show off that you're a member every time you share a photo of your stitching with a friend or on social media. This delightful little gadget will not be available anywhere else! 

  "I purchased a needle minder and I love it! It makes stitching between things so much easier. I can put the needle down, answer the door, and quickly pick it back up again. It doesn't leave holes in the linen."

- Customer Charlotte T 

If you're a Caterpillar mega fan, the All-Star Stitchers membership can save you money! Members will receive their very own 10% off discount code that can be used all-year round (from 15th January 2024 until 31st December 2024), on as many orders as you'd like! 

The code has unlimited value, and can be used to purchase new launches, kits, PDF patterns, stitch-a-longs, needle minders, and more. The discount code cannot be used in conjunction with the Caterpillar Club Box, the 2024 Advent calendar, or combined with other bundle offers

You'll also receive a £10 e-gift voucher! The perfect excuse to treat yourself to the stitchy goodies you've had on your wish list for a while. Use the voucher to purchase a needle minder or PDF pattern (for free!), or put £10 towards the January stitch-a-long, a new kit, or a stitching social event. 

 

We've been trying to think of a special way to thank our most loyal customers for a while - brand NEW for 2024, introducing... the All-Star Stitchers 'Lucky Star Surprise'! 

If you sign-up to the 2024 membership, we'll automatically enter you into a VERY exciting prize draw! 3 randomly selected members will win some fantastic, jump up and down-worthy prizes (all worth over £100). 

All you have to do is become an All-Star Stitcher! If you're a winner, we'll contact you using the same email address you used to sign-up to the 2024 membership. 

Don't worry about getting your hands on our most popular products, or missing out on event tickets or a product launch because you're at work! Members have access to an exclusive presale for ALL 2024 events a full 24 hours before non-members, including the in-person Caterpillar Stitch Retreat (full details coming soon), and Virtual Stitching Social events.

Members will also have early presale access to purchase the 2024 Advent Calendar, Stitch-a-Longs and other popular products. 

Sally will host 3 members-only lives throughout 2024 - at least one of the 2024 events will be scheduled for a suitable hour across each of our most popular time-zones (Europe, USA and Australia). 

Be the first to know everything - upcoming product launches, stitch-a-longs, release dates, details about the 2024 Caterpillar Stitch Retreat, Advent Calendar, and more. During the lives members will have the opportunity to ask Sally anything they like, and we'll let you in on absolutely everything we know! 

All events with Sally will be recorded and a private link will be shared so that our members can watch it back at their own leisure. 

 

We're making it as easy as possible for our members in 2024. In February, we will be sending our members a useful, printed welcome pack! This handy booklet will contain everything you need to know about the membership - online event dates and details, your discount code, pattern release dates and details, Lucky Star Surprise details, and more. 

If you have any questions about your membership, you'll be able to refer to the booklet and find all the info you need. 

The welcome booklet would make a lovely souvenir, or a fabulous addition to the scrapbook pages of the Complete Cross Stitch Journal! The welcome pack will be shipped alongside the needle minder in February 2024. 

The bimonthly members newsletter will contain exciting insider insights and special updates from CCS headquarters! We'll let members in on everything we're working on first, from new designs, to upcoming product launches, to event details. 

WHO CAN JOIN THE CROSS STITCH MEMBERSHIP?

You might be a complete beginner or somebody who already enjoys other crafts like crochet, quilting, or embroidery, or maybe you're a more advanced cross stitcher. The membership is suitable for everyone! 

If you're a beginner cross stitcher, becoming an All-Star Stitcher is a fantastic way to get involved and learn as you go.

Our patterns are always beginner-friendly! We never include tricky French knots or back stitch. You'll also have access to unlimited support (from both us and our amazing Facebook group with over 18,000 members worldwide). 

HOW DO I JOIN THE CROSS STITCH MEMBERSHIP?

Places for the membership open for a limited time only! The 2024 membership listing will open Wednesday 29th November at 7pm (London time) and close at midnight on Friday 12th January. 

Once the listing has closed, we are unable to offer additional places. Don't miss out - add the above dates and times to your diary and follow our Facebook and Instagram pages for regular updates. 

The membership is not a rolling subscription. If you were a 2023 All-Star Stitcher, you will need to rejoin to gain access to the 2024 benefits. 

Any items ordered at the same time as the membership will be shipped together with the needle minder. If you’d like additional items sooner, please order them in a separate transaction. 

We ship worldwide, meaning the membership is open to everyone and you can join from anywhere across the globe! 

JOIN THE SUPPORTIVE CROSS STITCH COMMUNITY

Meet new people and make friends with other members in our Facebook group - with over 18,000 members, there's a ton of support available 24/7. No matter where you are in the world you're sure to find someone nearby! 

 

 

The team is working hard to ensure the 2024 membership is the best it can possibly be! We're looking forward to learning more about our community, and grateful that we can offer special benefits to some of our most loyal customers. 

Don't forget places for the 2024 membership open on 29th November 7pm (London time)!

Happy stitching!
