Return to Shady Thicket

Once you’ve been introduced to this lovely handmade sampler, you’ll settle for nothing less. Our needle has been darting in and out of the cotton, creating this beautiful piece. You may even want to break out some fresh linens to match this new decor. It may not smell like a bed of roses, but deep down, it’s very sweet.

Steotch Inaugural Mystery Stitchalong – Closed 8/1

stitchalongAW YISS.  It’s that time, beotch!  Welcome to the Steotch Fine New England Needlearts Inaugural Mystery Stitchalong.

Edit: 8/1 – The Stitchalong has now closed, and as we warned, the patterns are no longer available. Follow our page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to get notified when the next Stitchalong is underway.  Otherwise check back here.

What is it?

We posted a series of cross stitch patterns at this URL.  Each pattern revealed a little more of the design.  A bunch of crafty craftersons stitched along with us, and created badass samplers of their very own – but didn’t know what they’d created until they’d invested way too much time to allow themselves to see it as anything but a triumph!


They shared their progress using #steotchalong on Twitter.

To see the finished sampler (and pictures from many of the fine steotchers who came along for the ride), check out our results post.
