The motifs will be released one at a time, a few days before each festival in the Celtic Wheel of The Year.

Can I do the stitchalong as a beginner?
The stitchalong is suitable for adventurous beginners as well as more advanced stitchers. You will need to know how to transfer a pattern to fabric. Knowledge of a few stitches would also be an advantage: French knot, lazy daisy stitch, cross stitch, chain stitch, back stitch and running stitch. There will be no tutorials for these 'basic' stitches through the stitchalong. There will be tutorials for more advanced stitches or techniques.
