Stitching Together is Better!
What is a Stitch Along?
A Stitch Along is a mystery cross stitch pattern of which parts of the pattern are released one at a time. Sometimes patterns are released daily, sometimes weekly or monthly.
Together with stitchers from all over the world you will receive the pattern, stitch it up and, if you want, share your progress.
At the end of the SAL everyone will have stitched the same pattern together – but there is plenty of room for creativity and almost all projects come out truly unique!
Why a Stitch Along?
While stitching for most of us is quiet, relaxing, me-time it can sometimes feel lonely. Not being able to show off your work to people who are as enthusiastic about it as you are can really put a damper on a finished project. This year, after the success of the Drawlloween SAL, I realised that stitching is just more fun when you do it together!
While stitching up a normal pattern is usually a solitary activity, a SAL offers a communal way of stitching. Sharing your progress along the way, making changes, helping and inspiring each other while we work on one project. This way, one project transforms into hundreds or even thousands of unique projects.
