SYHO Designer Encyclopedia Stitch-A-Long

Loose Thread Stitchers is hosting its first virtual SYHO Designer Encyclopedia (DE) Stitch-A-Long Friday, February 12th, 2010 to kick off this exciting campaign. The first online party will be from 7-9pm. We have a few fun ideas for the evening that we’re not ready to tell you about just yet, but it will be a great night full of fabulous stitchers and a few surprises.

Unlike most rotation methods where you choose a bunch of UFOs or WIPs (UnFinished Objects or Works in Progress), the LTS Stitch-A-Long project is a year-long stitch event following the new releases of the SYHO DE.

Membership in the Loose Thread Stitchers: SYHO Designer Encyclopedia SAL is free and you can join whether you are around the corner or acorss the world. Timely completion of your monthly project will earn you an entry to win some fun goodies and be eligible to enter your finished Designer Encyclopedia into our first ever Loose Thread Stitchers SYHO Designer Encyclopedia SAL Contest.

You may be asking at this point, “Can I really complete a design a month?” ABSOLUTLY! Not only are all the Designer Encyclopedia designs just the perfect size to be able to finish each and every month but they are also extremely affordable. Be sure to post your WIP’s and finishes on the LTS SYHO Flickr Page. We have created the Flickr account so stitchers can showcase their WIP's and finished Designer Encyclopedia pieces and create an online SYHO Designer Encyclopedia photo album where all can view and share our progress.

On a more personal note, I have only joined one SAL in my life time and it just so happens I stitched the wrong piece. Quite a funny story! You can read more about it here.

We know you will love the Loose Thread Stitchers SYHO Designer Encyclopedia SAL club! So who’s in? Here’s all you have to do to sign up:
Send an e-mail with your name and blog information to StitchYourHeartOut(at)gmail(dot)com.
