OH I DO LOVE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE!

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. 

When the Stitch-a-Long is complete, you can shop the full cross stitch kit and pattern HERE.

LET'S GO ON HOLIDAY!

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!  

IT'S 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!

GREAT FOR CROSS STITCH BEGINNERS

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.

STITCHING SATISFACTION 

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!

NEVER LOSE A NEEDLE AGAIN

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!

Here’s a little Hula girl I just did so I can look forward to going to Hawaii in October for my best friend's wedding (where I’ll be a bridesmaid!) I love cross stitching because I find stitching so meditative and relaxing and the patterns are so beautiful. There’s such a sense of accomplishment when you’re done too!

I wasn't aware of the difference a great quality fabric can make both to the experience of stitching and to the appearance of the finished work. So, I thought it would be really interesting to go back in time and find out everything about the needlecraft fabric brand we love and what makes it so special.

If you’ve been working on cross stitch in a hoop then it’s easy to finish off the back with a neat piece of felt. You’ll need your finished cross stitch piece, the hoop you want to frame it in, a pencil, some scissors, a needle, cotton thread, embroidery thread and a piece of felt that’s at least as big as the hoop.
