July is going to be extra special this year, we may even venture to say it will be a jolly ole time! Join us for our annual Jolly July Stitch Along as we spend the whole month stitching up festive designs with Kimberly Jolly and Priscilla and Chelsea of Stitching with the Housewives to stitch up holiday patterns all month! You can join in by stitching a new holiday pattern every day, a new pattern each week, or spend your July stitching up one big piece with Kimberly.
This year Kimberly is stitching up our new mystery pattern, Mistletoe Lane and the Stitching with the Housewives Jolly St. Nick and Rudolph pattern in addition to several other holiday patterns you can see here on our Jolly July Page. Let’s get started- we’ll tell you everything you need to know today to prepare for whatever you choose to stitch!
Stitch up Mistletoe Lane
Mistletoe Lane is a 5-part downloadable PDF pattern series beginning July 3. After you sign up, you’ll receive a new pattern each week via email in time to finish by the end of the month. If you join us for Mistletoe Lane, you’ll be surprised each week just like Christmas morning!
If you order your Mistletoe Lane Pattern before July 3, you will receive your Mistletoe Lane Supply List immediately, and all of your patterns will be delivered via email every Friday in July. If you wait to order after July 3, we will add your first pattern release to your FQS account along with the supply list and email you each pattern after.
