Entomologie Stitch-along Schedule

Thank you for all of your enthusiasm over my new fabric collection, Entomologie! Many of you have pre-ordered kits and I’m happy to say that they have all shipped out today! (I managed to assemble just a couple of extras, so if you missed out you may be able to grab one in my shop!)

Since you’ll likely be receiving your kits soon I wanted to post the schedule for the free appliqué stitch-along I’ll be hosting here on the blog. Whether you purchased a kit or not, I hope you’ll join us! The pattern for 3 of the bugs (The original Summer Flies By Banner) is available in my shop. (The bonus beetle is exclusive to kit buyers, only) During the stitch-along I’ll post my progress as well as tips and techniques along the way.

Entomologie Stitch-along Schedule:

6/11: Kick off! Gather tools and materials. Print templates

6/13: Trace and cut appliqué pieces. Glue basting

6/15: Start stitching! 1st video tutorial

6/18: Keep stitching! 2nd video tutorial

6/20: More stitching! 3rd video tutorial

6/22: Finish up, create hoop backing.

As you can see, I’m keeping the schedule pretty loose but essentially the stitch-along will last 2 weeks. You can post your progress in the School of Wool Facebook group or on Instagram with the hashtag #entomologiestitchalong. You can also email me a finished photo at [email protected] Anyone that shares a finished photo any of the bug hoops by July 15th has a chance to win some goodies!

This is going to be fun!

    Hi, Betz. Do you have any more kits available? Been super busy moving my mom, so just getting caught up on things. If not, at some point will the beetle be available?

    • I’m all sold out but will email you if I can scrape one together. :)
