This summer, Cross My Heart is participating in the first ever world wide shop hop! Shops from Ohio to Australia have partnered up with designers to offer stitchers a delightful shop-hop, treasure hunt, and mystery stitch along. Our featured designer? Hot House Petunia! We will be offering a few different events through July and August so stay tuned for more information. To find the other shops participating in this first of its kind event – visit the Collective Stitch!
Get ready for a summer of stitching fun! We are kicking off our Stitching Olympics with a Summer Robin. It’s kinda like a round robin—only different! Cross My Heart is inviting you to participate in a summer stitching exchange. Stitch a piece between 30×30 and 60×60 stitches of any subject between now and August 5th. Finish your project into an ornament, pyn pillow, wall hanger, stand up, whatever you would like. Bring or mail to shop finished project along with $5 for shipping and handling and the name of pattern and designer. We will collect finished products and mail a completed stitchy gift out to all participants by August 22. Open to all our stitchy friends – both local and far away! Stay tuned for more Stitching Olympics activities!
