AUTUMN STITCH-A-LONG COMPETITION!

March 26, 2019

Fall in LOVE with Autumn! The brand NEW Stitch-a-Long 'Hello Pumpkin!' starts in May 2019 with pre-order open 17th April 2019. But before we get to that, I'm giving away a full PDF Kit & matching Needle Minder worth £41.95 to one lucky stitcher!

To enter, simply click the image below to LIKE and COMMENT on the Facebook competition post. I think my favourite thing about Autumn is crisp country walks and hot chocolate! The competition ends and the winner will be announced at 9pm on 16th April. GOOD LUCK!

If you love to cross stitch, we have full cross stitch kits available with gorgeous pre-sorted shades of DMC threads, gold needles and Zweigart fabrics. The PDF patterns come direct to your inbox once a month! Stitch-a-Longs are a fantastic way to start cross stitching for beginners and to make new friends, get tips and enjoy this craft!

This Stitch-a-Long will have one piece released each month and will last for 5 months in total. Small pieces of the overall pattern will either be emailed to you as an instant PDF download. 

If you're new to cross stitch or you've never taken part in a Stitch-a-Long 'SAL' before, here's all you need to know!

1. Its loads of fun! The feedback from stitchers is amazing and I've yet to meet someone who doesn't love making new friends, posting images of their work or getting that little surprise when each new part arrives!

2. Its perfect for a beginner because you won't feel overwhelmed. You'll only be stitching a small part at a time. And there's absolutely no rush to keep up if life gets in the way! Many stitchers keep up while others take a break or work on other projects and catch up further down the line.

3. Its so satisfying! Its different to your day job, looking after the kids or doing chores around the house. This is time out for you. Peace at the end of a stressful day and a chance to really zone-out! When you start off small but after a while see you've actually stitched a beautiful section that's appeared out of nowhere, it gives such a sense of achievement that money can't buy!

There's also a special pumpkin needle minder I've designed to go with this Stitch-a-Long! Its made from hard enamel with a glossy finish. The muted colours and design tie in with the colour palette and elements from the SAL pattern itself. The needle minders have two super strong magnets on the back so it is held securely in place on top of your fabric while stitching and when you need to take a break, simply place your needle on top and it stays put due to the magnetism so lost needles will be a thing of the past!

Make sure to join over 2,500 cross stitchers from all over the world in our dedicated Facebook group HERE. We share WIPs and tips daily, chat and support.

The Hello Pumpkin cross Stitch-a-Long starts on 16th May 2019 and pre-order is open from 17th April - the perfect birthday present idea or 'RAK' (random act of kindness) for any cross stitcher!

Here’s a little Hula girl I just did so I can look forward to going to Hawaii in October for my best friend's wedding (where I’ll be a bridesmaid!) I love cross stitching because I find stitching so meditative and relaxing and the patterns are so beautiful. There’s such a sense of accomplishment when you’re done too!

If you’ve been working on cross stitch in a hoop then it’s easy to finish off the back with a neat piece of felt. You’ll need your finished cross stitch piece, the hoop you want to frame it in, a pencil, some scissors, a needle, cotton thread, embroidery thread and a piece of felt that’s at least as big as the hoop.
