Join me this fall for my 2nd annual Holiday Stitch-along Ornament Club! One new design will be revealed every 2 weeks from October 1 through November 15, for a total of 4 unique ornament patterns. Join the club and get a jump on your holiday crafting!
How does it work?
Register at the bottom of this post. A Welcome to the Club email with a general supply list will be sent to you when you sign up. Materials will not be provided. On Wednesday, October 1st, you’ll receive an email with the first ornament PDF pattern. Each of the remaining PDF patterns will be released and emailed to you every 2 weeks. (October 15th, November 1st, and November 15th) You may join the club at any time and still be able to get all four patterns!
What do I need to participate?
You will need access to a computer, the internet, a printer and Adobe Reader. A camera and a Facebook account are optional but highly recommended so you can share your work with the rest of the club!
I’m a beginner, can I join?
Absolutely! Each ornament PDF pattern comes with clear instruction, diagrams, photos and is suitable for confident beginners. Hand sewing will be used for the projects as well as some machine sewing and basic embroidery stitches. Felt is the primary material being used as well as ribbon, beads and other easy-to-use items.
Can I buy the ornament patterns individually?
The PDF pattern for each ornament will be available for purchase individually in my Etsy and my Craftsy shops at full retail price. Individual ornament patterns will be released one week after the pattern is delivered to club members. Note that purchasing the Club represents a significant discount over purchasing each pattern separately. No refunds can be given for buying the patterns separately and then, at a later date, purchasing the complete Club.
Why are the ornament designs a secret?
That’s the fun part of this stitch-along club! Each month will be a surprise when you receive the newest ornament pattern in your inbox. And aren’t the holidays all about surprises? If you’re game for show and tell, you can post photos of your creations in the Facebook group and/or post on Instagram with the hashtag #2014HSOclub. I’ll also be sharing tips, techniques and variations of the ornaments on my blog.
Can you give us a hint?
Nope! But to give you an idea of the type of ornaments we’ll be making, the 4 ornaments below are the designs from last years club! (The wreath, hot chocolate, peace dove and amaryllis from 2013 are still available in my etsy and craftsy shops!) This year’s club will be all new designs!
When do we start?
The first pattern is being released on Wednesday October 1st. Each of the remaining PDF patterns will be released and emailed to you every 2 weeks. (October 15th, November 1st, November 15th) The one-time membership fee for the club is $16 for all 4 patterns. However, EARLY BIRD sign up starts today! From now through September 30 you’ll receive a $4 discount making your membership only $12!
EDITED 12/1/14: The ornament club is now closed! Thank you!
