2021 Serendipity Stitch Along – Release 1

We’re ready for our Charity Stitch Along! Are you ready to get started? Today we’re sharing the first part of the cross stitch pattern for our Serendipity design, a pattern inspired by our 2021 Serendipity Charity Quilt.


To make your cross stitch just like this one, download our complete Cross Stitch Supply List for all the details. The colors you choose are up to you, but we’ve collected some items to get your stitching off to a good start.


Our Serendipity Cross Stitch Chart and Quilt benefit Make-a-Wish Central & South Texas.

Fat Quarter Shop is happy to be partnering with Moda Fabrics to match up to $30,000 in donations for this worthy cause. 

If you’re new to our Charity Stitch Along, welcome! The way the fundraiser works is that we offer the Serendipity patterns as FREE downloads during the event for a suggested donation of $15 for the whole cross stitch pattern to our Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas campaign. Today we are releasing the first of seven patterns that make up this chart! Every two weeks, we will publish a new part of the chart here on the blog.

Thanks to your generous donations, we’ve already raised over $29,000! We’re more than halfway to our goal!!

With your support, we’ll reach our goal of $50,000 in donations towards Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas!

  1. I started this on aida that was too small to see. I find the navy hard, so I used 2 to do larger and just dropped off last couple designs on right. It is a challenge. Not sure if my eyes, color or doing 2. Whew….will use larger aida from now on. May need to get stronger lighted glasses. Lori Holt, hurry and add some strong lighted glasses.
