Throughout the year, I organize different SAL, but what is a SAL?
SAL is the acronym of the American expression "Stitch-A-Long", which means: "Let's stitch together"! The idea is to join embroiderers from all over the world around a common project.
A model, created specifically for the occasion, is cut out in 5 to 6 steps. The different stages correspond to specific points, a level of difficulty, a theme, a color... Each SAL has its specificity!
No rewards, no deadlines, this is not a competition. The values of these SALs are above all sharing and mutual aid. We wish through these exchanges, to allow you to take advantage of the pleasure and serenity that embroidery can bring you.
Various initiatives are then put in place to help you move forward on this project:
Facebook Lives take place every week. A live for each stage. These lives allow:
- to explain the different points encountered,
- to give embroidery tips,
- to share on the progress or the difficulties of each one.
Each live is then shared on a dedicated Youtube playlist. You can watch and review each video at your own pace and according to your progress.
A dedicated Facebook group is created to allow each member to share the progress of their work, ask for advice, comment and exchange opinions with all the other people who are embroidering the same work.
If you are new to traditional embroidery, this is a perfect way to get involved and learn as you go without any pressure. The community created around the project will allow you to find solutions for every doubt or question you encounter. In addition, our kits contain everything you need to start your embroidery directly: the printed canvas, the needle and the threads!
We also thought of left-handers! All our videos are filmed with a right-handed view and a left-handed view!
SAL of the moment:
Discover two new patterns each month to embroider on a table runner or any other support of your choice!
This Stitch-A-Long (SAL) includes 12 "Easy Custo" kits, each containing two patterns. And an additional kit that will allow you to embroider the corners if you wish to create a table runner like mine.
I envisioned a rectangular table runner. But thanks to the magic of "Easy Custo" and patterns printed on water-soluble paper, you'll have the freedom to embroider them on a round tablecloth, your table napkins, on beautiful fabrics for wrapping your precious gifts.... The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
