Introducing CKC Cross Stitch!

I'm super excited to announce today that we have officially launched our new Cross Stitch line! 
Find the entire 13 pattern collection here: CKC Cross Stitch

I have memories going way back to when I was just a little girl cross stitching at my Grandmas house, or with my mom! I picked it back up and I have fallen in love with it all over again! 
As a crafty, must stay busy person, it's nice to have this hobby that I can do on car rides, in the car waiting for practices to end, or while sitting on the couch watching the television with my husband and our kids. I especially love stitching on those cold winter morning while sitting in front of my warm fire place and sipping on some yummy hot chocolate! 

To help celebrate its release, we have an amazing give-a-way just for you! When you purchase any of our new cross-stitch patterns this week (November 5th to November 11th 2018) You will be entered to win the following cross stitching goodies! 

*2 pieces of cross stitch fabric! 
*30 Skeins of DMC floss! 
*1, 7" Loop
*1, 8" x 8" Q-snap frame
*1 Pair of embroidery scissors
*1 pack of my favorite embroidery needles
*1 pack of floss bobbins with metal ring
*1 Q-snap cover hand made just for you by me!

I wrote this fun "Pumpkin Patch" Pattern freebie to help celebrate our new release! Click the link below to take you to the free pattern listing on our website! 

And lastly, I have also written this fun free tutorial on how to make a fun Q-snap cover like one of them shown below! It's super fast and easy tutorial for making 6" x 6", 8" x 8" and 11" x 11" covers for your projects! It's a great way to keep your fabric nice and clean while you're touching it!

Thank you so much for reading, and be sure to comment below with your favorite cross stitching memory! Who taught you how to cross-stitch? Are you new to cross stitching? If you have never cross stitched before, or if you want a re-fresher, I created this video to help show you how I personally like to do my cross stitch stitches! You can find the link to the video by clicking the link here: How to cross stitch! Or watching below!

Thank you and happy stitching! <3

November is here and it sounds like a bunch of us have started making some Thanksgiving outfits and decor!

Whatever you happen to be sewing, I think you'll love our new patterns this week!
