I run stitch alongs (SALs) throughout the year. To participate you need to purchase the SAL from the store. This will give you access to the patterns as they are released and all of the pattern that has already been released. If the SAL is currently ongoing you will receive the pieces via email and will be able to access them from the website. If you join part way through you will be added to the mailing list and be able to access all of the previous releases. Don't worry if you haven't kept up the stitching pace, the patterns will not disappear, you will retain full access to the patterns via the website.

There is aΒ dedicated Facebook pageΒ where everyone will be stitching along while enjoying a community atmosphere. Please answer all the questions if you wish to join. It is not mandatory to join to take part.

Many online email providers put my emails in spam/marketing/unknown. If you are not receiving emails from me please check there. You can also white list stitchalong@urbanstitches.co.uk to prevent this from happening.

If you have problems accessing your purchased SAL please contact me atΒ stitchalong@urbanstitches.co.uk

β–  Schedule β– 

Each SAL will have it's own schedule, fabric sizing & colour recommendations and floss list. My recent SALs have breaks factored in to them to allow catch-up time.

β– Β Colours β– 

Most of my SALs allow freedom of choice, you can change up the colours to what you have or would prefer to use. If a very specific colour is needed I will highlight that. As an example, Memento Mori needs very specific colour to reproduce the original painting, however That Which Does Not Kill Us give suggestions of "dark brown" and "light brown" but also has DMC numbers if you prefer to stick to a certain palette.

At the bottom of this page is an instructional video on how to complete some of the basics of blackwork. I also have written instructions on Learning to Stitch with diagrams.
