If you're interested in cross stitch and love Christmas, this is the cross stitch kit for you! Christmas is by far my favourite time of year, putting up the tree, baking the cake and buying gifts for your favourite people. 

Last year, for our Christmas 2018 Stitch-a-Long, I designed 'The 12 Days of Stitchmas' our bauble tree themed Christmas SAL, which got some great feedback from you guys - thanks! Take a peek at the previous Christmas cross stitch kits and patterns HERE. 

For 2019, I've gone back to basics and used a DMC thread colour palette full of bright, vivid greens mixed with pops of orange-red, pink and blue. We'll be combining modern typography with our 'Christmas essentials list.' (I'm trying not to give too much away but I'm hoping you guys are going to love it!)

If you're new to stitch-a-longs, the 'Deck the Halls' SAL is a 12 week project where one small digital pattern piece is emailed out to you once every fortnight! You can choose from PDF patterns only (where you source your own kit materials) or full kit options including gorgeous soft pale grey Zweigart fabrics, silky smooth DMC threads (pre-cut by hand and pre-sorted on to a special Carlos the Caterpillar card thread holder for easy access!), gold plated 18K DMC needle, full instructions and colour key.

Here's all you need to know!


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 in progress or getting that little surprise when each new part arrives!


Especially if you're a beginner, you're only facing 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.


Its different to your day job, looking after the kids or doing jobs 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!


We also have a special hard enamel gingerbread man needle minder to complement this SAL. It has two super strong magnets on the back so it stays in place on your fabric and that needle ain't going anywhere! These little delights come presented on backing card and were designed using the same colours as the Stitch-a-Long DMC threads (see below).


Why not join over 8,000 stitchers from all over the world in our dedicated Facebook group HERE. We share WIPs and tips daily, chat and support.

The Deck the Halls Stitch-a-Long starts on 6th September 2019 and the final part is released at the end of November 2019 just in time to finish off and display in your own home for Christmas or give as a gift! Click HERE to find out more.

I started my large Harry Potter project last year, but work and family life took over and it was put down for about six months. Then when lockdown happened, life got turned upside down.

Wow, what a year. As I sit here on Christmas Eve Eve writing this from our offices in Coventry with orders still going out the door, feeling uplifted, proud, excited but also exhausted and overwhelmed for what 2020 has thrown at us.

I remember going to craft fairs where my mom bought beautiful handmade bits that filled our home and she occasionally sold pieces she had made herself. Like on the top of a mason jar filled with baking ingredients or a piece finished in a hoop with fabric around the border.
