Spot Sampler Stitch-A-Long
Welcome to the Diamond Jubilee Sampler Stitch-A-Long (SAL)!
Not to let a simple thing like the closure of Embroidery House and the self-distancing rules in the era of the Coronavirus get in our way, the DJ Sampler Design Team have gone digital and hope you would like to join our online adventure.
This little Spot Sampler was created as a doodle cloth to practice the stitches and techniques used on the EGV Diamond Jubilee Sampler. It is also a good way to try out fabric, threads and colour choices.
You may like the stitch the Spot Sampler with us or perhaps use the knowledge from one section to work on a Small project or perhaps to help you finish a band on your Sampler.
Each week a new part of the Spot Sampler will be worked on by the DJS Design Team and we will post what we have done for you to see.
You may also like to join our Facebook Group at this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DJSamplerSAL/
You will be asked to provide your Membership No. and agree to the Group Rules before being accepted.
We look forward to keeping in touch with you and making the most of our stitching time together!😀 And just like at our Guidance Groups, no question is a dumb question and not worth asking and there is always time for a cuppa.☕️
To join in the SAL follow along over the next 12 weeks or ‘show and tell’ on the progress of any of your Diamond Jubilee projects.🤩
We love a finish as well, so let’s have a virtual Exhibition!👏
