Heads Up! Changes Coming!
Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted a sip of water and suddenly felt like you were drinking from Niagara Falls?
Friends, that's kinda how the first few months of the Stitchery Crossover program felt! That's all changing, and it's so exciting!
The 'Stitchery Crossover' Membership is getting an exciting Makeover! . . .
Over the next few months, a whole new Stitchery Crossover program is being re-invented. Look for new program details in Late Summer/ Early Fall 2020.
While Stitchery Crossover is getting a facelift, no new memberships are being accepted.
Would you like to be the first to know about the latest information when Stitchery Crossover re-launches? Just add your name to the list below.
What is 'Stitchery Crossover,' anyway? . . .
As a quilter, I see something fabric-y, I want to make a quilt out of it. As a stitcher, I like to create things I can put into my quilts. Framed stitchery pieces are nice, but how many do you really need, after all?
Combining these two crafts isn't new. Finding NEW ways of combining them is of great interest to me, especially when adding multiple stitchy and quilty borders is concerned. And that's what Stitchery Crossover is all about, adding stitchy and quilty borders to counted needlework, and then turning them into amazing quilted objects.
Stitchery that crosses over to quilting.
For purposes of this conversation, 'stitchery' is defined as 'charted embroidery' - like cross stitch or black work - done on aida cloth, linen, or even weave cloth like jobelan or lugana . I am excluding redwork or other types of free form surface embroidery done on wool, muslin, or quilting cotton. Not because it isn't isn't beautiful, but the even weave/counted stitchery requires a different twist or two to make it quilt-ready. Also excluded in this definition, stitching on canvas.
The Stitchery Crossover Membership program initially began at the Hummingbird Highway in October 2019. By January 2020, I could see that it needed to take an exciting, new direction.
My path is now very clear, but I'm stepping back a bit to re-vamp, revise, and re-launch a new and improved version of Stitchery Crossover later in 2020.
Here is what I'm planning:
A brief introduction to the proposed Stitchery Crossover revision, details subject to final program outline to be determined.
Learn the step by step process to add multiple quilted and stitched elements like borders to stitchery.
Original charts and kits to begin the lessons. No shopping, guesswork, or searching. Everything needed will be included in the first few lessons.
The opportunity to learn the Stitchery Crossover technique one element at a time, gradually advancing to using existing charts and designs for your Stitchery Crossover projects.
The opportunity to join and participate in (optional) an online members-only Facebook group
Learning the unique characteristics and precautions needed to combine different techniques and materials so the end result will last.
