Creatively Stitching will take you on the path to being the best cross stitcher you can be!
Are you a new cross stitcher?
Unsure where to start, or maybe you are just overwhelmed with all the information available.
Have you been struggling to keep your stitch bug alive?
Looking for ways to stay inspired and keep consistently stitching.
Are you looking for some cross stitch friends?
Find like minded stitching besties that speak your cross stitch language and are as obsessed with the hobby as you.
Being a Stitchee has brought so many good things into my life…from having somewhere to go to discuss all things cross stitch, the love and support of the collective, and a mentor who is open and supportive to others. The Stitchee Collective is about more than just cross stitch, it’s about building bonds between people and bringing us all just a little closer together.
I love my new stitchee family, seeing all the lovely work and everyone is so helpful it’s great!
Together we will . . .
- Be curious and want to take the cross stitching world by storm. You will no longer feel overwhelmed by all the information out there.
- Be healthy – mind, body, and stitchy soul. You will live life with a positive mind, and a positive stitch community to go to when you need some company.
- Be organized with no chaos, simply sit and stitch! You will have resources at your fingertips to keep you organized.
- Be stocked up with the cross stitch stash of your dreams. You will have, or know where to get, everything you need and want.
- Be inspired to take on all project – big and small! You will not fear confetti, or large projects, nothing will scare you!
Remember, that the WE is not just you and me . . . it’s the Stitchee Collective – full of positivity, encouragement and fun!
Cross stitching is a wonderful hobby for people of all ages. It is a great way to unwind and relieve stress. BUT for some, it causes stress – because there is SOOO much information and SOOO many things involved. Cross stitching is filled with information and it can cause overload for some; and for others you just never tap into all the awesomeness that cross stitching has to offer.
Together we will turn you into the super stitcher I know you can be – with a tribe of STITCHEEs behind you motivating and inspiring you to truly enjoy your hobby!
The Stitchee Collective is all about having fun cross stitching, keeping each other inspired, motivating each other to finish those projects and celebrating our stitching accomplishments together.
Here’s what one of your new stitch besties has to say about Creatively Stitching:
So what do I love about being a Stitchee?
Well firstly, all the patterns we get either free or discounted, I mean who doesn’t love having more to stitch?
Secondly, all the support from the other Stitchees. You run out of a thread – someone will find it somewhere, you looking for a pattern – someone knows someone who is selling it, you want permission for a new start – you got it!
Thirdly, getting the challenges, let’s face it extra motivation always helps and the challenges are so varied it gets you thinking or picking up that long neglected project.
Fourthly, resources. There’s so many useful tutorials, from the basic how to stitch all the way to stitching with ADHD and colour choices. To me, all of these things make it great but probably the best part is knowing that even if you stitch alone at home in secret, there’s a whole bunch of people excited to see what you are up to.
What is a STITCHEE??
Have you heard things like:
- “That looks …. nice”
- “That’s all you got done after hours?!”
- “How do you enjoy playing with string?”
You will never hear that from a Stitchee! We get you!
The Stitchee Collective is:
- Total positivity – always happy and having fun.
- Always inspiring each other to be creative.
- Celebrate every win, even the little ones, even non-stitchings ones.
- People that “get” you.
- Only the BEST family a stitcher can have!
The Stitchee Collective family started in May 2019 and the member’s that have joined in are just AMAZING!
Everyone is encouraging, positive and inspiring! So much fun to hang around (virtually) with! The members are all about creating a happy place with no drama at all!
It’s the stitchy family you always wished you had! I know I love them all to pieces and don’t know how I lived without them!
Joining the Stitchee Collective will give you almost 500 new Stitchee Besties!

One More Reason to Get in Now . . .
Our Stitchee Collective is a super close knit little family, and I want to be able to remember everyone’s names and truly make them friends.

What does that mean for you? When we open in Spring 2024 we will have only around 30 spaces available!!
Stitchee Lites!!! You get a head start of 2 days!! Learn More about Stitchee Lite HERE
I was lost. I only really had one friend I could go to for questions on projects. Now I have a whole family I can reach out and ask for advice.
The challenges that are put on help me finish projects quicker.
Thank you for everyone! Thank you for the motivation and all the added challenges. Love the smaller SAL that are put on as well. I have a lot of work head of me.

Here’s what Stitchees are saying:
I love this membership, but don’t just take my word for it . . . here is what some of the member’s are saying:
I love how much lighter my wallet is and how much less free time I have with new projects always popping up
But in all seriousness I would add that the group is a supportive family where everyone is accepted and everyone stands by each other in craft and in life.
Well what can I say.
This was the first group I joined and everyday I find something new in the hub.
Patterns, SALs, tips, videoes, and a whole group of new positive friends.
I joined this past March and am not sorry. Well worth my money.
Being a Stitchee was the best decision I could have made when it comes to cross stitching! For me, it’s so much more then free patterns or learning new things.
I have met so much amazing people in the group. People who I talk to on a daily basis. I love how no matter what time of day or night it is there always someone around to talk to. It’s so much more then just cross stitching, you get to learn about where different people come from and seeing there projects.
I love when we post what our weather is like in different parts of world. I love how you get to learn from each other.. I couldn’t be more thankful to Amanda and Shawna for all there hard work they do. I think everyone needs to join.
I love the SALs and the stitch challenges, even though I am a slow stitcher and do not get to stitch every day like most do.
Great, wonderful, and awesome group!! NO DRAMA! Friendly people, lots of fun, very informational.
I love the resources and video chats!!
This group is more than just stitchees. Its a family.
We banter, cheer each on, and lift each other up. We talk about everything – gaming, stiching, and whatever comes to mind.
Come join us…you won’t be disappointed!
It’s 100% worth every penny.
The ability to have multiple SALs, but have the ability to hop back and forth between them once your in is great. The other thing is that there’s no pressure to get them done in a specific timeframe. You complete them at your pace! If you want to skip certain parts, go for it. If you want to pause a SAL because another one is coming out, do that too!
I love the low key, zero pressure of our stitchy family. The customer service is over the moon amazing. You truly go above and beyond for all things Creatively Crafting.
The Stitchees gave me somewhere where I could forget about daily stress when my world seemed to be falling apart. This group is so supportive of eachother and came into my life right before I would need a strong support system the most.
I became a Stitchee in the fall of 2020.
During the height of the pandemic as a stay at home mom of two I rekindled my love for cross stitching. I came across the Stitchee Collective on Facebook and instantly knew that these were my people.
I have since created life long bonds with some of the people in this group. Amanda has worked hard to make this a fun and loving place to come and be yourself. I believe everyone should be a Stitchee.
I have found a new family that understands me and my hobby, We laugh, cry and rejoice together and always have an open ear for the others. And if we are not doing so well, there is at least one Stitchee who builds you up.
And never forget those wonderful stitch together.
I love being a stitchee because the challenges and patterns it provides motivates me to stitch more.
I love being able to bring these patterns to life and gift them to family and friends.
Stitching has helped so much with my ptsd and anxiety that when I’m stitching I forget about everything around me.
Being in the stitchee group makes me feel like I’m part of a family of stitchers that I feel comfortable asking anything about cross stitching and get and being able to give advice and not be judged or I just feel comfortable they make you feel like you’re a part of the family.
I’ve completed more projects in the last couple months than I had in the last 2 years which is exciting! I’ve learned to be more organized with my WIPs. It’s a great group of like minded and caring crafty individuals with unique patterns to challenge even the experience stitcher.
If you love cross stitching it’s the best community you could join!
The Stitchee site has so much to offer everyone that is a part of it.
There is so much choice from stitching patterns, SAls, needle minders.
Love seeing Amanda live too!
