When it comes to Christmas, are you a meticulous planner who has everything sorted before the shops bring out the mince pies? Or do you leave everything to the last minute, vowing this is the last year you’ll resort to socks?
With must-have toys and Secret Santa, it sometimes feels like the list gets longer each year. But if you're looking for a yuletide gift for a cross stitcher then rejoice! Here are our ideas for the perfect pressie to wow and delight a special stitchy someone.
If you’re after something they can get their teeth into during the Queen’s speech, look no further than our kits. They include the pattern itself plus fine DMC thread, Zweigart fabric, DMC gold eye needle and caterpillar thread holder.
Our joyful kits include Dash Away, a tribute to our favourite reindeers, the fabulous 12 Days of Stitchmas, and this year’s stitch-a-long, Deck the Halls, which encapsulates everything we love about Christmas.
If your recipient has all the supplies they’ll need, then you’ll find even more festive Christmas designs available as PDF patterns. From the Merry Christmas Box, which features Santa, a snowman, Christmas pudding and bauble, to simpler designs such as our Jolly Snowman, they'll have all the instructions they need to stitch up a cheerful piece. You’ll just need to print the pattern and then pair it with a suitably festive card (perhaps one you’ve cross stitched yourself!).
Our Deck the Halls Christmas 2019 SAL has now come to a close (you can still grab the kit and pattern here), but there’s another one on the way! The elves have been preparing our next SAL, the floral 'Bloom & Grow', and it’s just the thing to sweep aside the post-festive come down. Your cross stitching friend will be enchanted as the pattern is gradually revealed and stitched across eight months.
Pre-order opens on 29th November 2019, but before that, we have a giveaway. Head on over to Facebook to join the 4500+ strong Caterpillar Cross Stitch community. There, you'll find out how you can be in with a chance of winning one full SAL kit including fabric of your choice and a beautiful floral needle minder.
If you’re looking for some extra stocking fillers or a little something for your sewing circle, we’ve got that covered too. Our cheeky pal, Gerald the gingerbread man magnetic needle minder, is a sweet festive treat and will make sure they never lose a needle again.
Friendly Carlos also features on our cross stitchers’ mug. Filled with a steaming eggnog or hot toddy, he’s the perfect companion for a cosy evening cross stitching. And for the cross stitcher who’s stitched everything? Our Caterpillar Cross Stitch e-gift vouchers will let them choose whatever takes their fancy.
If all this talk of cross stitching gifts has got you hankering after your next project, why not check out the latest issue of The World of Stitching magazine (issue 288). It contains a special stocking hanger I designed that you can personalise with the little ones’ names.
Hang it up on Christmas Eve and see what Santa brings this year. Me? I’m hoping for Lindt chocolate, a facial and a lie in!

As 2023 draws to a close, I wanted to take a moment to slow down, reflect, and acknowledge the wonderful, busy year we've had.
Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to our fantastic Caterpillar community. I cannot believe that Caterpillar Cross Stitch turned 8 this year! We're so grateful that you've stuck with us, and we cannot thank you enough for your continuous love and support.
