SonovaStitch-Along Season 3: Everything is Wholesome! (Mystery StitchAlong SAL)
Pre-launch pricing! Stitchers who sign up before the first Episode releases save $5!
Plus! You'll get an extra 25% off any other digital patterns you buy along with the SAL!
This Mystery SAL is inspired by Interlocking Brick Toys similar to those made by a certain very litigious Danish company, and by all the wholesome public figures who are (or were) just too damn good for this world.
We'll be cross stitching minifig versions of 16 of the most wholesome household names (real people, not fictional characters — though sometimes dressed in their most iconic characters' wardrobe) on a large (nearly 11x14") piece. There's a fair amount of open space between sections (~29% coverage), so this will be a good opportunity to use that large piece of beautiful specialty fabric you've been saving for just the right project!
I'll also be creating a few alternates as we go along if you happen to disagree with the wholesomeness of any of my choices (or if you just don't dig one all that much).
Episode 1: May 2, 2023.
New Episodes: 1st and 3rd Tuesdays each month thereafter (with bonuses anytime there are 5 Tuesdays!)

Starting on May 2nd, you'll get an email from me (ford (at) sonovastitch (dot) com) with an announcement of the week's episode. Make sure you add me to your contacts list so it doesn't go to spam!
Also make sure you provide a valid email address when you check out so that I can send you each episode!
