Dispatch & Shipping

Pre order open 8th December

The crafts heart Stitch-a-long (SAL) has 27 parts/patterns. Each part/pattern will be realeased by email every 2 weeks.

This is a pre-order, all packs will ship towards the end of December and first week of January. SAL starts 12th January 2024.

Although this is a large design, it is completely manageable as we will be stitching a few objects at a time.

The patterns/files are in pdf format and you will need to download to your computer/phone/tablet. We will include both black & white and colour patterns. If you join part way, you will receive all the previous patterns.

Fabric options:

We offer 4 fabric options.  However, we do not recommend the 14 count aida, the design is not full coverage and white fabric will show underneath stitches. We think the design will look great on 16 count or 18 count aida. The 18 count aida and 25 count evenweave is for more experienced stitchers. 25 count evenweave has the grids on it which they will disappear once washed.


14 count aida: 97 x 75 cm (38.3 x 29.6 in)
16 count aida: 85 x 66 cm (33.5 x 25.9 in) 
18 count aida: 76 x 59 cm (29.8 x 23.1 in)
25 count gridded evenweave (over 1): 54 x 42 cm (21.4 x 16.6 in)

About our kits

We only sell counted cross stitch kits. All our kits are of top quality. 

They include Madeira 6 stranded cotton threads. We wind all threads on 4 meter or 8 meter card bobbins.

Madeira is an excellent German quality, threads are shiny giving a project a slightly glam look. They do not discolour or bleed onto fabric, they can be washed in washing machine at 60 Degrees Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit.

We also use an outstanding quality of fabrics from Zweigart

Sample: How our kits look like

Fabric choice

14 count aida

Ideal for beginners. Most common cross stitch fabric. 14 count aida has larger holes, so you might see some white fabric under the stitches, depending on how tight or loose your stitches are. Use 2 strands for stitching.

16 count aida

Great dense coverage, my personal favourite fabric! 16 count aida has slightly smaller holes then 14 count aida but easy to see. It has a very nice dense coverage - white fabric can not be seen under stitches. Use 2 strands for stitching.

18 count aida

Ideal for advanced stitchers. Great for large designs. 18 count aida has small holes but it has a great dense coverage. Some people stitch with 2 strands, others use 1 strand. Our kits provide thread allowance for 2 strands. We would not recommend 18 count aida if you have poor eyesight.

25 count gridded evenweave

Ideal for advanced stitchers. Great for large, full coverage designs. This fabric is for more advanced stitches (and good eyesight). The grids will dissapear when wash at 60 Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit. 25 count evenweave is ideal for large and advanced designs. It is worked over one. The colour available is off white.
