September 27, 2021

Let it Snow... welcome to Box 4 of the Caterpillar Club! 

Each box comes with all of the great quality supplies needed to create the perfect frosty, penguin cross stitch project, along with a selection of other gorgeous themed treats. We can’t wait for you to join us in celebrating the most wonderful time of the year!

Be sure to subscribe before 14th November 2021 to receive a special Christmas treat in the post containing a brand new cross stitch kit and lots of other magical goodies for you to enjoy!

Please stop scrolling now if you'd prefer a complete surprise.  

 

Box 4 is the first ever Caterpillar Club box to include a (highly requested!) brand new needle minder - this time matching the cute penguin design above. The DMC thread shades are mirrored in the enamel paint on the magnetic needlecraft essential!

The full cross stitch kit comes with easy-to-follow instructions, a colour printed pattern on one page of A4 paper, a pre-sorted Carlos the caterpillar thread holder, DMC stranded cotton, light blue Zweigart 14 count aida fabric (perfect for beginners) and a DMC branded size 24 needle. The box 4 design was created by Sally Wilson of Caterpillar Cross Stitch to get you in the Christmas spirit!

This magical project provides just the right amount of crafting - it’s totally manageable and can easily be completed within a couple of weeks. Imagine a cosy December night in, Strictly on the TV and taking a little creative break away from what can be such a busy season.

Christmas can feel like it comes and goes in the blink of an eye, and lots of us forget to cherish the moments that make it so special! Now is the time to give yourself a break and enjoy 3 x yummy Lindt chocolate truffles, while you snuggle up with your favourite festive film and new craft project. Our box also contains a jolly penguin needle minder, who will be your new favourite cross stitching companion! He will keep your needle safe while you nip to the kitchen for a mince pie and mulled wine!

You will also receive a fabulous penguin Christmas tree decoration for your home. Once your cross stitch project is finished you can gift it to a loved one and make them feel extra special. The project could be framed, displayed in a hoop, turned into a wall hanging, ornament or even a cushion (click here to watch some video tutorials on these finishing styles).

There truly is no better gift than a handmade item, made with lots of love! It will be something they can keep forever, and bring out every Christmas for years to come! Our boxes can also be a lovely way for you to get someone else into the Christmas spirit, and let them know you’re thinking of them!

Lots of our subscribers choose to treat their loved one to a surprise caterpillar club box, as a special pick me up. Making someone else smile with a thoughtful gift is what Christmas is all about, and it makes us feel good too! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas, and happy stitching!

It's a great pick-me up when you least expect it. Often people forget and it brightens things up when your new box arrives on your doorstep at the end of a long day! A wonderful way to reduce screen time and zone out while learning a new crafty skill. 

"I absolutely love these subscription boxes, I’ve never done anything like this before but I’m so glad I took the plunge! All the products are always great quality and so thoughtfully put together" - Customer Review by Ali H.
