Stitch Around the World | Travel Themed Adventure Awaits!

July 03, 2018

When I was 21 I got the travelling bug. Bored at university and with long Summer holidays usually wasted at home, I decided to jet off with 15 strangers to Vancouver for 3 months with BUNAC. From there, my explorations continued with trips to Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, a long road trip from Yosemite to San Diego and a 6 month work placement in Sydney.

I love our amazing world, the countries and culture I wish I had even more experiences of. My hope is that I get to visit as much of our globe as I can, while I can. Our next trip will be Madrid in early 2019.


And, this all leads me on to our latest Stitch-a-Long of course! Adventure Awaits is a 6 month project where one small pattern piece (or should I say country or continent) is emailed or posted out once per month, ready to start stitching on 22nd of each month. When the Stitch-a-Long ends, the full cross stitch kit or PDF pattern only will be available in full! Here at Caterpillar Cross Stitch we absolutely love Stitch-a-Longs, but if you're new, read more about why they're so much fun HERE!

You can choose from PDF patterns only (where you source your own kit materials), hard copies only (where you are posted a professionally printed full colour pattern each month) or kit options with a variety of beautiful Zweigart fabrics in a pale aqua shade to represent the ocean.


We also have a gorgeous globe themed hard enamel needle minder to complement this SAL. It has a super strong magnet on the back to keep your needle in place, comes presented on backing card and uses the same colours as the DMC cotton threads. Take a peek at the full range of needle minders HERE.



Join over 4,500 cross stitchers from all over the world in our dedicated Facebook group HERE. We share photos of our work in progress, tips with chat and daily support. The cross stitch project started in June 2018 and runs until November 2018.
