Lolli and Grace One Meaningful Word #6 Stitch Along - Supply List And Schedule

Lolli and Grace One Meaningful Word #6 Stitch Along - Supply List And Schedule

This year's One Meaningful Word Stitch Along will be here before we know it! There's a lot of great information in the previous post (especially if you're interested in purchasing a supply kit ) so you'll probably want to go check that out. Click the link below to see it:

One Meaningful Word #6 Stitch Along Information

In today's post there are two important details for you below...a supply list and dates for the stitch along. First, let's talk about the schedule.

One Meaningful Word #6 Schedule

• There will be FOUR parts to this stitch along.

• The stitch along will start on Wednesday, May 4th.

• After the start date, the second part will be published four days later (the next Saturday), and then the next two parts will be posted on the next two Saturdays. So here's what the schedule looks like:

Part One - Wednesday, May 4th.

Part Two - Saturday, May 7th.

Part Three - Saturday, May 14th.

Part Four - Saturday, May 21st.

Remember - once they've been published, all four parts will stay on the blog for the duration of the Stitch Along and for a short while after it finishes. So if you don't finish your hoop while the SAL is running, don't panic! At some point after the SAL is over, I will remove everything from the blog and it will all be available in the Lolli and Grace shop. Therefore, if it's going to be a while before you're able to finish it, you are welcome to print out the instructions and patterns for your personal use later.

Supply List

Comments

  • Hi! So excited to do this with you! I’m in Ireland so I have a few questions – is tracing paper a good substitute for graphite paper? Also, we don’t have those cheap hollow q-tips here – is there anything else i can look for? Posterboard is a problem sometimes too – would card stock work? If not, what GSM should i look for, what size, and does it have to be white? Will a white thin tipped paint pen work instead of gel pen? And is Aileene’s fabric glue ok to use?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Misha on
