CROSS STITCHING INTO 2020 | THANK YOU!

January 02, 2020

As we start our fresh new year, I wanted to take a moment to look back on 2019 and thank you all for your continued support. It really means the world to me and I love creating projects that create joy! 

STITCH-A-LONGS

2019 saw the launch of Stitch-a-Longs, Seas the Day, Hello Pumpkin and Deck the Halls. I know for many of you, one of the above was your first ever Stitch-a-Long so thank you for making it one of mine!

 

GIVING BACK

We've donated hundreds of pounds to charities close to my heart, Cancer Research UK and Mind, the mental health charity through the sales of needle minders 'Brave and Strong' and 'You Are Enough.'

At the beginning of 2019 one of the coolest things ever happened, with Caterpillar Cross Stitch scooping 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize at the British Craft Awards for Stitch Designer, Stitch Brand and Stitch Retailer of the Year so thank you to everyone who voted.

This year, I've also launched the Stitched Together project for which I've received hundreds of contributions so far. They'll all be properly stitched together at the start of 2020 so watch this space!

WHAT'S COMING THIS YEAR

2020 will see the launch of Love It Stitch It, a range of cross stitch kits for children I've been working on for some time now, a whole host of new kits and patterns, 3 new Stitch-a-Longs, more Stitching Social events and plenty of new accessories including needle minders and improved project bags!

I'd love to hear your feedback from 2019, so please click HERE to complete the survey (it'll only take a few minutes)… Thanks again for all of your support during 2019 whatever that form that may take from commenting on social media, subscribing to our YouTube channel, opening and responding to emails, taking part in Stitch-a-Longs, leaving a review or attending an event - I'm grateful from the bottom of my heart.
