WHAT IS A STITCHALONG?
A Stitch Along (or SAL) is a group of stitchers working on the same project/pattern together. This can either be of a theme or with a special design set up to be stitched in sequence. Here we do mystery stitchalongs where you don't get to see the end result till you are DONE! It's a blast an a fabulous community grown out of it from our first SAL ~ The Universal Monster SAL.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The pattern for the SAL will be in the shop on the release date. Upon purchase you will receive VIP access to a secret hideout on my website. On pattern release days the files will be uploaded there as well as emailed to you.
WHAT IF I CAN'T KEEP UP?
Doesn't matter! You stitch at whatever pace you can, you finish it when you finish it. There is meant to be NO STRESS!! Just have fun and enjoy the ride!
WHEN IS THE NEXT SAL?
The next SAL starts August 1st 2021.
Cryptozoology is the study of creatures whose existence has yet to be—or else cannot entirely be—proved or disproved by science. These creatures, known collectively as cryptids, include examples like the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and the Himalayan Yeti, yet these famous cases are by no means the only ones on record. In fact, practically every country and corner of the globe has its own legendary monster or mystery creature that dwells there.
The Cryptid SAL features 16 of these creatures, hand-picked by The Witchy Stitcher and her secret team. SAL on sale now!
Frame released August 1st, first Cryptid September 3rd. Scroll down to download the info sheet and purchase the pattern!
The best description that comes to mind of what the "vibe" of this pattern is
Victorian Gothic Cryptids
This SAL even comes with its very own cryptid mascot...The Cone of Doom!
The Story of the Cone of Doom
It is no secret that I call for ALOT of DMC 310 in my patterns, especially my SALs! There has been a running joke that you need a cone of DMC 310 in order to work on my pattern library. The giant ball of thread has been lovingly named...'The Cone of Doom'
Cone of Doom Shirts and Stickers also available!
THE CHOPPING MALL
The second Witchy Stitcher SAL was from Nov 2019 till April 2020 and was a BLAST!
How do slashers pay for their hatchets, chainsaws and various other torture devices?
Well...they have day jobs at the Chopping Mall of course.
Take a glimpse into the day in the life of these mundane monsters, and
get ready to clock in at the office with Mr. Voorhees.
The first Witchy Stitcher SAL was in April 2019 and was a overwhelming success! We had so much fun working on the
pattern together. There were so many fun and creative interpretations of the SAL!
The pattern is still available to purchase if you wish to make your own Monster Mansion.
One of the best parts of a stitch along is the social aspect. During the Universal Monster SAL we created:
It has turned into a wonderful coven full of kind, caring, funny, and mega crafty stitch witches!
This group is not limited to the SALs, or even just cross stitch.
Let your freak flag fly sweeties!
