Welcome to The Happy Stitch Project!
If you’ve ever wanted to try hand embroidery but you’re not sure where to start, then this is the course for you! I originally ran this project throughout 2021 as a way to give myself a little creative boost, learn some new embroidery stitches and make some new friends along the way. The response was brilliant, and I had so many people asking if I’d be running it in 2022! So I decided to add The Happy Stitch Project as a FREE online course, which you can work through at your own pace.
How does it work?
Each week, I’ll teach you a new hand embroidery stitch (although there are actually two in the first week) so you’ll learn 53 stitches during the course. A new lesson will be added every Friday each week throughout the year, so that you can work through it like we did in 2021. If you want to stitch along, you might want to set a weekly reminder on your phone 😊 But don’t feel the need to keep up every week if you can’t – that’s absolutely fine! Please work at your own pace and enjoy the process of learning to stitch.
If you’re starting The Happy Stitch Project after January 2022 you can basically work through it at your own pace, and the lessons will be there in the course already. This is all about making it work for you, so take what you need and leave the rest! If you want to read more about the project, you can read my original blog post here.
Will I get the pdf templates in the course?
Absolutely! Templates and material lists are provided each week. I will be adding new ones in this year too, so if you’ve already joined in during 2021 it’s worth signing up for new ones too. Please note that all patterns and templates are for personal use only.
What will we stitch?
You can either just learn the stitches by doing them on a practice hoop (a hoop that you have some scrap fabric in), or by stitching some of the projects. There will be a new project each week – I didn’t manage to keep up with this in 2021, so will be adding new ones in 2022! OR you can stitch the super sampler that I stitched on IGTV in 2021, designed by my lovely friend Helen from Unicorn Factory.
What do I need to get started?
All you need to get started it some fabric, needle and thread and an embroidery hoop (an 8″ for the sampler). If you need supplies, I’ll direct you to the options I have in my shop if you wish to shop small with me 😊 All material lists are included in the course – just sign up and you’ll get access to all the content.
Sounds brilliant – how do I sign up?
To register for the course, you’ll need to add this listing to your cart and checkout – but remember that it is all FREE, so you won’t be charged anything!
