Last year, I launched a weekly newsletter called The Stitch. It’s an embroidery and fiber art-focused email—delivered on Fridays—that shares inspiring artwork and ways that you can get crafty yourself (think digital patterns, DIYs, etc.). Unfortunately, The Stitch was something that was put on the back burner at the end of 2021. But! It is truly one of my favorite things I did last year, and I’m excited to start it up again.

You can subscribe to The Stitch here. You’ll even get a free embroidery pattern when you do! For a taste of what an issue is like, here are some links shared from one of my most popular issues last year. Sometimes, the content revolves around a theme, and this one was geared towards beginners—it focused on beginner-level patterns for hoop art, quilts, and clothing.

There’s no experience necessary when you try these embroidery, quilting, and clothing patterns.


Embroidery Samplers

Samplers are a great way to practice new stitches. Even if you’re thinking, “Yeah, but I know some stitches!” there are literally hundreds of them so I think we could all benefit from samplers. I know I could!


Beginner Embroidery Projects

  • From the same maker who brought you the sweater sampler, this adorable sloth kit will help you to put some of your stitching into action.
