STITCH-A-DAY CHALLENGE 2018 // NATIONAL EMBROIDERY MONTH WITH DMC

February 02, 2018 2 Comments

February may be the month of love, but it is also the month of all things embroidery! 

DMC & Gulush Threads are putting together a 'Stitch-a-Day' challenge to encourage stitchers all over the world to get their hands busy every day, for the month, with challenges to really make it interesting! 

Stitchers old and young, new and experienced are encouraged to 'free stitch' all month long while following these daily challenges:

These challenges are meant to add some fun to this month's free stitch with every seven days being a freestyle day where you are encouraged to use any and all types of hand embroidery stitches, threads, colors, you name it! Although participating in the challenges is desired, please don't feel obligated to stick to anything, especially if your piece begins to evolve into something special.

The challenge is meant to get ourselves creative, not stifle any creativity!

Now, since this is free stitch, your piece can be anything you want it to be - abstract/nonsensical/florals/practice - anything! Try to shoot for at least an hour of stitching a day, if you can! If not, stitch what you can, when you can! Just make sure to post your progress every day on social media (I will be perusing the #stitchventure tag on Instagram and sharing my favorites every day on my IG stories)! 

I'll be logging on daily to Instagram Live to go over the day's challenge (as well as keeping each live available for 24 hours for repeat viewings if needed). So turn on post notifications, so you don't miss out! 

To make this month even sweeter, DMC & Gulush Threads will be giving away some embroidery goodies throughout the month to those participating (with one big giveaway at the end of the month for those who have participated in the challenge and have shared their progress in the tag)!

So, get your fingers (and supplies) ready to make this month stitchtastic! 

I can't wait to get stitchy with you!

This sounds like a fun challenge, since I do embroidery just about every day I think I will give it a try.

So excited and I’d love to be able to fit in an hour a day, but I don’t think that’s feasible for me. I really like the idea of having the direction of the things on the list. I have a hoop I started to practice some stitches on and this will be great for that hoop! Thanks again! I look forward to watching IG.
