The Creatively Stitching family 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:
I love my new stitchee family, seeing all the lovely work and everyone is so helpful it’s great!
What is a STITCHEE??
Have you ever wished more people around you spoke your stitchy language? People that totally understood why you got so excited about stabbing fabric hundreds of time with string.
I’m sure you usually end up getting funny looks from your family and friends if they aren’t stitchers – they don’t “get it”.
Well I DO!! And so do all the Stitchee’s in the Creatively Stitching family!
One thing I have always struggled with when it comes to cross stitching was connection to other stitchers. But thank you internet! Here we are. I have tried many, MANY groups to find that connection I was looking for. What did I find?? Drama, “rules” and a bunch of negativity. TOTALLY NOT MY THING!!
I know there are others like me out there… others who just want to enjoy stitching, chat about stitching, share their progress without worry of being made fun of. I want to be able to inspire others to stitch, share what I know with them, and at the same time get that boost I need some days to stitch – or a “way to go” on my progress pics.
I know our family and friends love us and say “great work” or “looks good” but do they REALLY understand what went into that small section of “string on fabric” – nope! But other stitchers do! And I have built a family of the most positive, inspiring stitchers I’ve ever met. When I started I had hopes for stitching family I wanted – but my dreams have MORE than come true. The Stitchee’s in the Creatively Stitching family are by far the most awesome family I could of asked for!
The Creatively Stitching family started in May 2019 and the member’s that have joined in are just AMAZING!
I am over the moon happy with my stitchee’s. 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!

Here’s What Creatively Stitching member’s 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:
Before I found Creatively Stitching I really didn’t know a whole lot about cross stitching. I am learning new things with stitching and new, fun patterns. I also love being able to talk to more stichers!
It’s great knowing that all the pattern are right there, in the Stitch Hub, so I don’t have to worry about if I can print them off right away or no
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!
I love how positive and helpful our stitchee family is. I also love all the SALs, they are unique to what I’ve seen going around and are super fun to stitch.
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!
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.
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!!
