Join us for the Prim Village Stitch Along!

A new Lori Holt cross stitch pattern is on the block! We’re stitching along to Prim Village by Lori Holt and we’d love for you to join us. Like they say, it takes a village! The Prim Village is a charming neighborhood of cross stitched homes in all the pretty rainbow colors, but with a vintage twist! If you love quilting as well as cross stitch, the cute quilt blocks included in the pattern are a perfect addition.

Kimberly will be stitching a section each week for 15 weeks from March 4 to June 10, 2020. She’s stitching on cloth voted on by our FlossTube viewers! Thanks for helping her decide. She’ll be stitching with Overcast 25 Ct. Lugana by Lori Holt. Prim Village is also available in a Quilt Kit if you’ve got to have both in your home. We wouldn’t blame you!

The Lori Holt Prim Village Cross Stitch pattern comes with full-color instructions, diagrams and supply list, including suggested DMC and AuriFloss colors. A cute Prim Village enamel charm is included too, and it is the perfect size for a zipper-pull on your cross stitch bag. Lori Holt released the Prim AuriFloss Box with all the floss colors you need, exclusive to Fat Quarter Shop!

The cross stitch pattern includes charts for the Large Prim Village and Small Prim Village and is designed to work on 25ct Lugana cloth. Large Prim Village finishes at 11.75″ x 12″ and Small Prim Village finishes at 3″ x 5″ on 25 Ct. Lugana. The Large Prim Village is designed to fit Lori Holt’s Large Square Vintage Frame and Small Prim Village is designed to fit a 4″ x 6″ frame.  Lori finished her design with a frame hand-painted in Chalky Chicks Pitchfork Paint and sanded it down for a vintage look.
