I'll be sharing some links to box sneak peeks in tomorrow's newsletter - if you aren't receiving our bi-weekly newsletter, you can find the sign-up form here.

ETA: We are now sold out of all options that include evenweave fabric, and have now moved to a wait list. To add yourself to the list, fill out this form. You can also sign up for any other option that does not include evenweave for the March/April box, and switch your subscription to an evenweave option starting with our May/June box.

Today I am happy to tell you about a new collaboration series between StitchyBox and Northern Expressions Needlework! Mini Twists is a series of charts designed in Nicole's signature "twisted band" style, each one focusing on just 2 or 3 specialty stitches. At just 60 x 60 and using just a few colors of thread, you'll be able to dive into your StitchyBox, or your stash, to find the perfect color combination for each chart. 

Mini Twist charts contain diagrams for each specialty stitch, and additional tutorials for the stitches are also available in the Northern Expressions Needlework Facebook Group

We will be releasing a new chart every 2 months, with the first, Eyelets and Smyrnas, coming out on February 3rd! The charts will be available in both print and as PDF downloads exclusively in the StitchyBox Store for $8.00 each. Sign up for the series subscription and save 10% off each chart!

Happy Stitching :)


StitchyBox Presents: Linda Keske of Keslyns


Today I'm happy to introduce you to our first StitchyBox Presents designer-in-residence, Linda Keske of Keslyns! In the 10+ years Linda has been designing under the Keslyns' banner,  she has developed a distinctive style of stitching called Sym-Stitching. Sym-stitching is basically string art translated into fabric, thread, and (or course!) bling! We featured one of Linda's Sym-Stitching charts, Highland Garden, on the blog last year. The Keslyns' website has a full index of Linda's charts (cross sttitch and sym-stitching alike), all of which are available from your favorite local or online needlework shop.

My Heart for Your Sneak Peek

Over the next six months, Linda and I will be working together to create three StitchyBox-exclusive kits highlighting her style of cross stitch and Sym-Stitching. Our first kit, My Heart for You, will be released in February. Subscription registration is now available for this kit series over in our shop - sign up and not only are you guaranteed to receive each of these limited edition kits, but you'll also save 10% off the regular price!
