Welcome to our 2020 Halloween Stitch-A-Long! This 5-Part Mystery Series features haunted houses, candelabras, skulls, bats, cats and witches - all in a monochromatic Modern Prim style as an Ouija-board sampler design.
This design can be stitched together as one large Halloween Sampler, or any of the little square sections can be made up into smalls - finish them as little pillows, pin cushions, cards, or scissor fobs!
The price is a one-time fee, and includes the entire design, released over 5 monthly section releases.

Fabric: Model was stitched on 14-count Aida in “Sandcastle” from Wichelt.
Update: The Sandcastle fabric will be hard to find for awhile, BUT this chart would work on so many different fabrics.
It will look good on almost any medium-color neutral fabric: beige, brown, greyish, blues, or try some crazy colors like orange or purple if you feel like it! Just make sure the white and black will show up! So don't use white or black fabric :)
Here are a few other fabric suggestions:
1. “Beautiful Beige" by Wichelt (Linen/Aida/Lugana)
2. "Vintage Country Mocha” by Wichelt (Linen/Aida/Lugana)
3. "Stormy Night" by Wichelt (Aida or Lugana)
4. "Eek" by Picture this Plus! (Linen/Aida)
Please make sure to cut your fabric at least 3" larger than the design on each side, 6" in total to each side (so for the full design, use a fabric piece that is at least 18" x 22" for 14-ct or 16" x 20" for 16-ct)
A Stitching Shop (USA) has the threads & fabric available pre-bundled for you!!
