How does it Work?
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.

Pattern not included but e-mailed in parts during the SAL
I’ve designed the SAL patterns with you – the creative stitcher – in mind. Every pattern has plenty of creative space to make the project uniquely your own. There will be opportunities to:
Change parts of the color scheme;
Use (hand) dyed fabrics;
Add specialty stitches like French Knots or Back Stitch;
Add beads or other trinkets;
Or anything else you can come up with!
All supply packs will include a special bead or charm that goes with the SAL. All Pattern Club Members will receive alternative patterns or specialty stitch tutorials to level up their finished project!
