One Meaningful Word #7 "Kaleidoscope" Stitch Along - Supply List and Schedule
One Meaningful Word #7 "Kaleidscope" Information Blog Post
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.
"Kaleidoscope" One Meaningful Word #7 Stitch Along Schedule
• There will be EIGHT parts to this stitch along.
• The stitch along will start on Saturday, March 11th
• Part Two - Saturday, March 18th
• Part Three - Wednesday, March 22nd
• Part Four - Saturday, March 25th
• Part Five - Wednesday, March 29th
• Part Six - Saturday, April 1st
• Part Seven - Wednesday, April 5th
• Part Eight - Saturday, April 8th
Remember - once they've been published, all eight 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.
Want to purchase a One Meaningful Word #7 Supply Kit that includes everything you need for this SAL instead of gathering your own supplies? I got you covered (assuming they haven't sold out). Click on the link below to get one:

If you want to purchase just the pre-printed fabric panel, click this link:

However, if you are not purchasing a supply kit or fabric panel and want to transfer the design onto your own fabric, you'll need to purchase the PDF pattern. There will be detailed instructions in the Part One video tutorial about how to do this. You can purchase the PDF pattern by clicking on the link below:

If you are gathering all of your own supplies, here is what you will need to complete this hoop. Everything that is highlighted is an active link that you can click on to purchase that product:
• Cotton twill tape (optional but very helpful - for wrapping your hoop to keep fabric tight)
• Fat square (18" x 22") 100% cotton Kona "Graphite" fabric
• White cotton fabric - about 3" x 4"
• Ball-point pen (any inexpensive ball-point pen will suffice, color doesn't matter, but a color other than black is helpful)
• White gel pen
• Pigma Micron Permanent pen size 03 (05 is fine, too)
• Heavyweight white poster board (3" x 4")
• #24 chenille needle
• Variegated Embroidery Floss (see details below)
• 9" square of polyester felt for hoop backing
Variegated Embroidery Thread Information
Please be sure to read all the way through this information about the thread - there is really important stuff to know in this part!
Because it is slightly more difficult to find these variegated threads, I'm giving you several options/substitutions. Please know that ANY combination of these brands/colors will be gorgeous. I'm super-picky about color, and I wouldn't recommend any thread that isn't going to look great. You can, of course, use solid-colored threads. The variegated threads just add a bit more visual interest.
All threads listed below are 6-stranded embroidery threads, regardless of brand/color.
Threadworx Overdyed Thread #10061 "Jillian's Sugar Plum"
It is very important for you to know that this Threadworx Overdyed thread IS NOT COLORFAST. If you are going to use this floss, you CANNOT wash this hoop or use a transfer method like the Sulky Stick 'n Stitch that requires you to rinse the hoop after stitching.
If you want/need to use a colorfast thread for the pink spoke, you can substitute either of these:
DMC Color Variations #4210 "Radiant Ruby"
DMC #718 (this is a sold color, not a variegated thread, but is still a beautiful pink)
