STITCH-A-LONG 2019 - Happy Seas the Day!

November 27, 2018

When January comes around, it can be a wet, cold and miserable time of year... but not any more! We're all going on a summer holiday with the brand NEW 'Seas the Day' 2019 Stitch-a-Long! If you love to cross stitch we have full cross stitch kits with 15 happy shades of DMC threads and Zweigart fabrics, PDF patterns and hard copies that will come direct to your doormat once a month! Stitch-a-Longs are a fantastic way to start cross stitching for beginners and to make new friends, get tips and enjoy this craft!

This Stitch-a-Long will have one piece released each month and will last for 9 months in total. Small pieces of the overall pattern will either be emailed to you as an instant PDF download or hard copies posted to you. The theme is a summer beach holiday so expect bright sunny, fun elements to cross stitch! All prices are one-offs and include all patterns to complete the full cross stitched piece. The fabric we'll be using in the kits is a super soft luxurious Zweigart in a sandy shade. 

If you're new to cross stitch or you've never taken part in a Stitch-a-Long 'SAL' before, here's all you need to know!  

1. Its loads of fun! 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 or getting that little surprise when each new part arrives! 

2. Its perfect for a beginner because you won't feel overwhelmed. You'll only be 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.  

3. Its so satisfying! Its different to your day job, looking after the kids or doing chores 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!

There's also a special beach hut needle minder I've designed to go with this Stitch-a-Long! Its made from hard enamel with a glossy finish. The bright colours and design tie in with the colour palette and elements from the SAL pattern itself. The needle minders have two super strong magnets on the back so it is held securely in place on top of your fabric while stitching and when you need to take a break, simply place your needle on top and it stays put due to the magnetism so lost needles will be a thing of the past!

The Seas the Day cross Stitch-a-Long starts on 25th January 2019 and pre-order is open from 1st December - the perfect Christmas present idea or 'RAK' (random act of kindness) for any cross stitcher! I can arrange for a printable to be emailed to you to present on Christmas Day - just add a note when you checkout.
