School of Wool Stitch Along!


Our Facebook group School of Wool (created by Betz White, me, and Mandy Leins) is having a stitch along for the Springtime Posey Banner pattern. The only requirement is that you purchase the pattern (please don’t share with others), it has the templates, instructions, embroidery stitches used, and illustrations,  you need. From there, I will be posting weekly videos, assignments, stitch demos, etc. and encouraging everyone to share their progress. Stitching is always more fun with others! Plus its just a fun way to creatively move our way through those last days of Winter, and set our sights on Spring.

If you’d like to join along, please purchase a copy of the pattern here, here, or here.

Join our School of Wool FB group to get access to the videos, demos, and post pictures of your project.

Follow School of Wool on Instagram (and be sure to tag your projects #sowabanneryear)

For this new version, I am going to make a subdued floral using heathery grays and creams, with accents of baby spit up mustard and pea greens. I also plan to use beads for this version, and will share how I sew them on in future videos.

My friend Cheryl has just debuted her first line of quilting cotton, Tagged.


She asked some of us if we would play along with a fun little word game she came up with to show off the fabric online! Each day, someone posts a quilt block somehow made with their assigned word, in tagged fabric. The end of the week spells out “Create Every Single Day”. My word was “single”.
