A Stitch for Every Season

Free Project Instructions!

Celebrate the four seasons by stitching the changing light, leaves, and brilliant colors in all their glory!

The earth's movement around the sun results in the seasonal changes we see in many parts of the world--budding leaves in spring, blooming flowers in summer, turning trees in autumn, and falling snowflakes in winter.

In this week's new designs, swirling lines form graceful Art Nouveau frames around bold seasonal symbols, while elegant ladies in beautifully detailed settings personify the spirits of the seasons.  

Rich landscape panels capture the changing light on the mountains, and cheerful tiles boldly proclaim spring, summer, autumn, and winter! Leaf and animal silhouettes, filled with floral swirls, complete the natural scene.

Stitch the beauty of the seasons today!
