This year has taught us to appreciate the love and peace of being home, and with that, the Home Sweet Home Stitch Along was born! Stop by for a few stitches with Home Sweet Home! Celebrate the places and spaces we call home with this enduring message, featuring a trio of sweet houses on a tree-lined street. Kimberly will be stitching along with us during the month of April. Read more below to learn how to get the pattern, supplies and get ready to stitch something beautiful at home!

Excited to do my first SAL
I can’t stitch as fast as all the stitch alongs, I love them, order them, but can’t stitch them and get discouraged. Slow Down!
