WHAT IS THE CATERPILLAR CLUB?

Sign-up to the Caterpillar Club and a themed cross stitch subscription box will be delivered directly to your door once every 2 months. This lovely little treat contains 3 top quality, crafty goodies and a new, exclusive cross stitch kit, designed by someone famous or up-and-coming in the craft world just for these joyful boxes!

Save time and money! These beautiful boxes always contain items worth much more than the price of your subscription, and you won't have to spend hours in a craft store browsing supplies or trying to find new designs to stitch.

The process is entirely hassle-free and the box will be delivered straight to you every other month (the plastic-free boxes are even small enough to fit through your post box!)

Have too many WIPs on the go? Easily pause, skip, or cancel your subscription at any time. 

ADD VARIETY TO YOUR CRAFTING

The theme of every box is different! Subscribing to the Caterpillar Club is the easiest and cheapest way to add variety and excitement to your craft pile.

We include 3 crafty goodies so that you can try various items, materials and new cross stitch techniques. Get excited in the days running up to your delivery and feel as though you're receiving a surprise gift every other month!

We hope to spread the joy of cross stitching to everybody! All designs included in the subscription are beginner-friendly - cross stitch is a calming, meditative activity with heaps of mental health benefits and the Caterpillar Club makes it so easy to learn. Notice your skills develop with every stitch!

If you're a more advanced stitcher, the patterns included are the best way to stay creative while taking a relaxing break from your bigger cross stitch pieces. 

Every single box is packed at CCS headquarters in Warwickshire with so much love and care! If you've found yourself in a creative slump, we guarantee these delightful patterns will provide inspiration and reignite your passion for creating. 

You have the option of a rolling bimonthly subscription, where you will receive a new box every 2 months, or you can save 10% off the next 6 boxes and pay upfront to secure your next 12 months of enjoyable stitching sessions!
