After a long break I've decided to re-open the Stitchery Club once more, and in addition to a healthy dose of hand-embroidery within each new set of designs, there'll be applique as well, and in a format to suit either needle-turn or blanket stitch - whichever is your favourite. I tend to flow from one to the other, though recently it's been mostly needle-turn.
In my previous Club I ran it by subscribed membership, however, this time around I've decided to release each new set of pattern through my Etsy Shop instead. This means no sign-ups, no monthly commitment, no Paypal. You will now be able to purchase the monthly pattern sets that you love, and skip over the months that don't suit your style or circumstances.
BUT - there's a bonus for purchasing the pattern sets during the month of their release! The first set of three patterns will be available from now until October 31st at the reduced purchase price of $10.00 AUD (plus $1 GST if you're in Australia) This is around 6.50 USD.
You can purchase the October 2023 set HERE in my Etsy Shop for immediate download.
On November 1st, those three October designs will no longer be available as a set, but will become individual patterns for sale in my shop at the regular price of $6 - $9 each. By purchasing from now until October 31st you'll get a lovely bargain.
November 1st will be the day I release a brand new Stitchery Club set of three patterns, and the same process will continue month by month.
But today, let's look at the patterns you can receive by purchasing the new October 2023 Stitchery Club...
I intend including at least one mini-quilt per set of Stitchery Club issues, and this month I have two - a home blessing and a Spring sampler, plus a simply lovely hoop art for Autumn...
BLESS OUR HOME
This measures 12" square and is a lovely little quilt to hang in your home or gift to another family. I used some bright scraps to applique the flowers, leaves and berries, and hand embroidered the verse. The background is a piece of cream cotton/linen blend fabric. The mini quilt was finished with hand quilting around the applique shapes and inside the border.
SLEEP LITTLE SHIRELINGS
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed planning, sketching, stitching and sewing this pretty little sampler! It measures 11" wide x 12.5" high and includes hand embroidery, applique, scraps of lace, buttons, and a few tiny beads too. In the detailed pattern you'll discover there are options for simplifying the overall steps (if you're new to this type of sewing).
I hope you'll stitch along with me as I open the door to a new season of The Stitchery Club!
