William Morris and company designs fascinate me and I find them so inspiring. I love the history surrounding all the wonderful designs and patterns and the colours are simply gorgeous.

So the 2023 ‘year long’ Stitch A Long was the perfect opportunity for me to embrace my love of all things ‘Morris’ and since its so hard to pin point any single design – with 12 opportunities through the year it gave me a much better chance of singling out a few for the project.

Here’s the wonderful design we will be stitching…

This Stitch A Long lasts for a whole year and is designed for you to stitch a segment each month
during 2023. People can join in at any time during the year as each of the monthly tutorials will be available to view on the password protected page on the blog, up to the end of 2023.

Want to join in?

…head over to the shop where there are several options for you to choose from…

PDF Pattern Template – download and transfer the design to the fabric yourself.

Pre Printed Fabric – skip the hard part and get the design completely transferred for you.

Plus this year there is a complete thread pack with all these gorgeous colours…

I wanted the colours to be a close representation of those used in the original designs so I coloured in each individual segment from a sample of the original design and then matched it up as closely as I could to the threads before I started stitching. The thread pack contains all 19 colours.

How it works…

On the 1st of each month, starting in January 2023, you will be able to go into the password protected page on the blog and download the latest PDF tutorial for that individual segment of the design.

This design is suitable for advanced beginners onwards – it does not detail a ‘how to’ on the individual stitches. The tutorial will detail the colours and stitches used to complete the stitching.

Download and save the PDF to your computer for future use so you can take as long as you want completing the design.
