The Cosy Cross Stitch Corner 2021 Mystery Cross Stitch Along (SAL) is coming and this time you are making a clock to hang up in your favourite place to stitch!
It’s currently on early bird special pricing and you can join here.
You can listen to me talk about the SAL below or keep scrolling to read about it instead.
The Cross Stitch Along details
We start stitching on the 9th May 2021 and finish on 13th June 2021.
If stitched on 16 count aida (which I recommend) this design measures around 7.6 x 7.6 inches and we are turning it into a clock that will be in an 8 inch hoop to hang up.
I love offering 2 colour palettes and I’ve done the same for this one. However, as you are hanging this in a specific room in your home you may want to choose your own colours and I can help you with this if you need it.
The first palette uses 13 colours and is called “Lazy Hazy Days”. This palette is bright with pinks and greens and stitched on blue aida. The other palette is called “Cosy Cabin Vibes” and is purples and browns and stitched on cream aida. Both the palettes use a DMC Coloris thread which I know you are so excited about. I love using colour changing thread! (You can read more about these threads here).
For this SAL you will need just 1 piece of aida (I recommend 16 count and the details are all inside the SAL) and maybe some interfacing to put on the back when you are finishing it off.
The pattern is released weekly via a platform called Teachable. The layout inside works great for SALs and all of the parts of the pattern are in the same place for you!
It’s quite simple to use, you just need to create an account and log in each week to either download the pattern or read it right inside Teachable. The photo below shows you the layout inside.
The pattern will be made live every Sunday at around 10am GMT. It’s split into small manageable parts and is a full-colour pattern with symbols.
FAQs about the Cosy Cross Stitch Corner SAL
What is a Stitch-a-Long?
A stitch-a-long is an event where we all stitch the same pattern together over a set number of weeks for a certain length of time. So for the Cosy Cross Stitch Corner SAL we are stitching together for around 6 weeks.
I go into more detail on this blog post if you need any more details on how SALs work.
What do you get in this SAL?
This is a fully digital product and the PDF patterns will be released weekly starting Sunday 9th May 2021 and there will be a list of the supplies you need once you’re inside plus links of where you can buy them.
You will get a video walkthrough of the pattern each week and lots of hints and tips to help you along, plus the free Facebook group which is so supportive and helpful. You also get a video tutorial of how to turn your design into a clock at the end.
If you choose the premium version of the SAL you also get extra video tutorials throughout to help you with tricky stitches and access to weekly calls with me each week where you can have your questions answered and extra help if you need it.
Is the Cosy Cross Stitch Corner SAL for a beginner?
This one is a slightly more complicated design than I usually offer as I know you want to test your cross stitch skills out with a harder pattern.
If you are a seasoned stitcher then the standard version of the SAL is perfect for you (I still include lots of tips and explanations about the pattern).
But if you are a beginner then the premium version of the SAL will be better for you as I will have video tutorials each week teaching you the different stitches, plus I can also help you live on video each week.
Can I see the SAL before I buy it?
If you would like to see the full design before you purchase just get in touch and I can show you, but I do ask that you keep it to yourself for those who like the mystery element. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or scroll to the bottom of the sales page for a peek.
When do we start stitching?
We start stitching on Sunday 9th May 2021 for 6 weeks.
How does the ordering process work?
Once you click to join, you will be taken to checkout at Teachable, where the SAL is hosted.
Please note, some countries and states will have extra Tax/VAT added on for digital download laws and state taxes.
You can then choose to pay via credit card or PayPal. The SAL is priced in $ but your payment provider will convert it for you if you are paying in a different currency.
You can also make an account with Teachable, you just need your name and email and then you can set a password later. This is how you can log in and access your SAL whenever you want.
I can’t wait to see you inside for another fabulous stitch along!
