Anthea SAL Membership


Join this Stitch-ALong to stitch & finish the Anthea Calendar!

By the end of this SAL, you will have stitched a different design (70 x 70 stitches) for each of the 12 months. It will be a floral calendar, featuring a mixture of revisited Faby Reilly Designs favourites as well as brand new designs. The finishing options are very varied, so they are left to your own preference: each design can be framed, mounted on a board, finished as a pin-keep, or made into a little cushion. You can also decide to stitch all the months on 1 single piece of fabric and display them in one large frame.

Please see the description tab for more information.

NOTE: Membership is purchased ONCE for the whole SAL – there are NO hidden fees for each part, and you are free to join at any stage until the last part is published. Memberships will close to new participants at that point, and the individual patterns will be released once the SAL is finished.
