What is a stitch-a-long?

If you're scratching your head wondering what a stitch-a-long is all about, don't worry—I'm here to spill the colourful thread on this exciting stitching trend!

So, what exactly is a stitch-a-long, or a SAL for short?

Well, imagine a virtual stitching party where a group of passionate stitchers comes together to work on a project at the same time. It's like having a stitching buddy by your side, even if you're entire towns, cities or countries apart. How cool is that?

Spruce Craft Co. is hosting our very first stitch-a-long called "Little Summer Shops," and you won't want to miss it. Starting on August 11th, SAL will take you on a six-part cross stitch journey that's bursting with vibrant colours and awesome summer vibes (and the best part, it'll actually be summer when the SAL ends).

So why should you join the "Little Summer Shops" stitch-a-long?

First and foremost, it's a fantastic opportunity to become part of a friendly and welcoming stitching community. You'll have the chance to connect with fellow stitchers, share your progress, and bask in the joy of creating alongside like-minded individuals. Trust me, making new friends who share your passion is a stitcher's dream come true!

But that's not all. SALs offer a refreshing change of pace from your current projects. If you've been longing for a new stitching adventure or looking to spice things up, "Little Summer Shops" is your ticket.

Each month, you'll receive a new part of the design, unveiling a colourful scene of charming shops and intricate details. The anticipation alone is enough to make your stitching heart skip a beat!

Join our Facebook group and dive into a world of inspiration, support, and lively discussions. It's the perfect place to share your progress, seek advice, and soak in the creative energy of a community filled with passionate stitchers just like you.

So grab your needle, thread, and all the snacks you can smuggle out of the kitchen, and join us for the "Little Summer Shops" SAL.

Let's stitch together, unleash our creativity, and create beautiful masterpieces.
