Steotchalong 4: Wrap-Up


Relive the quaint days of a simpler time – a couple months ago:

As promised, we’ve selected a handful of the selfies as More Good than all the rest.  We’ll be reaching out to each of these folks individually to help them get their choice of kit from our Etsy.



Sorry, cat people – from Jessica, via Facebook



The comment makes it. –  from leighdelo on Instagram.

That’s the inside of a submarine.  I ain’t going in no submarine.  – from MK on Facebook.

Thanks to all who played along – the video above includes some really fun and amazing pictures, and we continue to be astounded that you all apparently enjoy doing this with us!

Stay tuned for more Steotchalong updates as events warrant.


Steotchalong 4: The final patterns


Steotchalong 2016 comes to its towering conclusion – with hundreds of pictures, tweets, posts and emails from stitchers around the globe, still humming with the heart-pounding action of CROSS STITCH.  We’re pleased to post the final choose-your-own-ending pattern, below. We hope you like it and brag incessantly to your friends.

As always, a HUGE thank-you to everyone who played along and took the leap of faith, and especially to those who helped make this possible with their financial support..

Here is the final pattern discussion forum.  Please use this forum to give us your feedback and tell us what you decided to do with your finished piece.

Steotchalong patterns will disappear after Labor Day, 9/5/16.

SEND US YOUR SELFIES – when you’ve got your piece finalized, post it on Twitter, our FB, or Instagram with hashtag #steotchalong – or send it to share@steotch.com. We have plans once again for showcasing the work of the whole community here – so don’t dawdle!

You can help ensure future Steotchalongs by visiting us on Etsy.


Okay, here it is:

Steotchalong 4: Watch My WIP


Steotchalong 4’s first pattern drops Monday.  Be sure to check out the official landing page for complete guidance and updates.

Like last year, we’re going to run a contest for those of you playing along at home.  Unlike last year, this year there will not be just one prize for the first person to correctly guess the pattern.

This year we’re giving away 4 prizes for best work-in-progress pics.  Last year we had more than 500 WIPs appear on Instagram and across the webs.  Let’s let a thousand WIPs bloom in 2016.

Post your work-in-progress picture using hashtag #steotchalong on Twitter or Instagram – to our Facebook page – or in the Steotch.com forums.  Awards for WIP pics will be given in four categories:

  • Funniest
  • Cutest
  • Daringest
  • Dankest Place

The winners will receive notoriety beyond compare, and Steotch Do-It-Your-Ownself Cross Stitch Kits (we have new designs coming soon) (US/Canada only – international winners will receive digital downloads from the Steotch Etsy store of equal or greater value).

As always, we are counting on all of you to not take any of this too seriously.  We will choose the winners based entirely on our own whims, and our decisions will be final.

Have fun, be safe, don’t hurt each other.
