FQS Stitch Maynia + Cross Stitch Channels

We have been crazy about cross stitch! From new patterns, cross stitch kits, flosstubes, and going to cross stitch market, we’ve really caught the cross stitch bug. So much so that we are sew stitching excited to say we are participating in Stitch Maynia 2019!

What is Stitch Maynia?

Started in 2015, Stitch Maynia is when cross stitchers start a new project every day in May. Kimberly will be participating in Maynia with 31 starts on different cross stitch projects, for a total of 31 cross stitch projects! We will be releasing a pre-recorded Maynia video every day of Kimberly stitching and giving her tips and tricks on each of the 31 projects on the Fat Quarter Shop Flosstube YouTube Channel.

You can join the Maynia too! Whether it’s needlecraft or quilting, you can jump in on the Maynia at whatever level you like. For some, that means finishing 5 unfinished projects (UFOs). For others, that might mean starting a few new cross stitch patterns. The point is to be inspired to enjoy crafting and connect with the community who are stitching and sewing, too.

To keep up with all things Maynia, be sure to check out our NEW cross stitch specific social media channels:  You can find us at FQSxstitch on Instagram and Facebook! Use the hashtag #stitchmaynia to join in the fun. We will also be doing giveaways for milestones on followers and a countdown to Maynia!

Happy Stitching!


  1. Hi,
    Is there a way to tell us if the chart is done in color or black and white. My vision seems to prefer color so it would help if I could select before I buy. So glad for all the cstitch products and tutorials!

  2. I wonder what would happen if you colored the black and white pattern with colored pencils or light colored markers? I might try it. I do agree it’s hard to see the black and white patterns

    1. Kathleen, I’m not sure about all the cross stitch patterns, but the ones created by It’s Sew Emma are charted in full color. They will either say It’s Sew Emma or have ISE in the description. You can see a handful of them here on the top of this page, like Farm Girl Fall, Quilters Cottage, and Vintage Christmas. https://www.fatquartershop.com/embroidery-patterns Hope that helps!

  3. I love seeing the projects layed out visually. Would it be possible to add fabric type, color and stitch count size for the projects? Or will that information be shared with the videos? Thanks.
