Join us for Parade of Homes Stitch Along

The Fat Quarter Shop team is stitching up a neighborhood for 2020! The 2020 Parade of Homes Stitch Along celebrates all those cute cottages and homes in all of our favorite cross stitch patterns! Join us in stitching a house or cottage pattern once a month all year for the ultimate block party. Whether you stitch one large project or stitch a dozen small pieces, we’re stitching with you. Let’s stitch up the neighborhood!

Each week on Fat Quarter Shop’s Flosstube, Kimberly will show her latest progress and finishes! She’s stitching up A Year on the Trellis by Little Stitch Girl and has invited Fat Quarter Shop staffers to stitch along as well. Check out what everyone is stitching for inspiration and let us know in the comments what you’ll stitch!

Codi is stitching up Glitter House Village by Country Cottage Needleworks! To add some extra sparkle, Codi will spray her cloth using Krylon Glitter Spray! Codi is all about the sparkle when it comes to cross stitch so we expect her houses to dazzle! The set Codi chose comes with 9 patterns! Codi plants to stitch one monthly for 9 separate pieces.

Supplies needed:


Shelby will be stitching up a snowy town with Frosty Forest. She’ll be stitching all her patterns into one large piece on Country French Rain cloth, and we can’t wait to see how it looks!


Cheryl is preparing for the holidays early with her cross stitch village! She can’t wait to display her holiday homes around Christmas time, stitching Santa’s Village by Country College Needleworks onto one large piece of cloth.

Supplies needed:

Denise, our local cross stitch whisperer will be sewing up a whole village of sweet gingerbread! Her Gingerbread Village homes will be stitched and finished individually on Lambswool Aida! We think she’s got a pretty sweet year of stitching ahead of her.

Supplies needed:

Angel is stitching up Snow Place Like Home! With winter on its way out, a snowy neighborhood to keep the holiday festivities alive! She’ll be happy to have her stitches done by next winter, just in time to decorate!
