Still stitching on Christmas Eve? A song (and video) for you

A very merry Christmas Eve to you!

Still quilting, sewing, knitting, or crocheting? Some of us are too. Whether your handmade holiday gifts are under the tree or still in several pieces, every Christmas stitcher has the same goal: to complete a project, wrap it in pretty paper, and give it to someone special. It’s a wonderful feeling!

If you are still making things, we put together a little jingle just for you. We hope it inspires you to get to the finish line!

Reading this in email? See our Christmas video at the Stitch This! blog.

We’ll be away until January 2, 2015. When we return, we’ll be well-stocked with more tips, techniques, and inspiration at Stitch This!, and excited to introduce you to new books coming your way in the New Year.

From all of us at Martingale, we wish you the warmest and cheeriest of holidays—a finished project by tomorrow morning—and a New Year filled with your favorite creative pursuits.

May peace and joy be yours during this holiday season!

  • In what book will I find the pattern for Rhythm & Blues?

    Hi Bev, as a starting point, can you let us know where you first saw the pattern–was it in a book or elsewhere? Do you know who the designer is? Thanks for your question! –Jenny

  • I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I finished the super capes for my grandkids on Christmas Eve – boys and girls! They absolutely loved them! Two of the girls were using them for beauty salon capes – such imagination!
