What is Stitchery Crossover?
Stitchery Crossover is a technique created by Joan Ford of Hummingbird Highway to combine charted embrodery (like cross stitch or blackwork) with quilting techniques. Certainly, cross stitch and quilting have been combined before; however, the Stitchery Crossover technique involves adding borders of stitchery inbetween quilt fabric borders.
Stitchery Crossover was initially offered as a membership program but has now been converted to a series of online courses to teach this detailed to created stitchery quilt blocks by hand. Mia Rosa, the first, prerequisite course offering is available. Future courses are under development.
What is Charted Stitchery?
For purposes of this membership group, charted stitchery includes counted or charted hand stitching done on even weave cloth.
How Can I Join Stitchery Crossover?
The Mia Rosa class is being introduced in waves. The first course includes a complete kit, and due to challenges in the craft supply chain, some material and product shipments are delayed.

Some Items in My Mia Rosa Kit are different from the Course description, should I be concerned?
2020 has been a challenging year for supply chain management. As a result some of the items in the Mia Rosa kit may vary from one kit to the next and from those items shown in the course content. Substitutions have been made, but none of the replaced items should impact your project results. In particular thread supplies have been especialy challenged. I am working directly with thread manufacturers to ensure your kit is not compromised, however, in terms of 12 weight quilting thread in the kit - the yellow and blue colors described in the course may have been substituted for a different warm and cool thread color until warehouse supplies are replenished. This thread color variance will have absolutely no impact on the final result of your project.
