What is the Happy Stitches Journal Club and how does it work?
The Happy Stitches Journal Volume 2, is a 12 Month subscription club running from January 2024 up to and including December 2024.
Each month you will receive a parcel full of loveliness directly through your letterbox. This club will include all the fabrics, embroidery threads and if required, applique templates or English Paper Pieces for you to sew that months page, plus of course detailed instructions will also be included.
In addition for this exclusive club, at various points in the year, you will also receive wadding and binding fabric, pretty lace, buttons and a spool of Aurifil 12wt for the hand quilting. Everything you need to make your fabric book except for your choice of piecing threads.
Each month you’ll sew a new 'page' and in month 12 you will also make a beautiful hand quilted cover. New techniques for Journal 2, include a beautiful 3d Felt butterfly and also some raw edge wool hand applique. It also mixes a selection of carefull curated fabrics in addition to the Liberty Tana Lawn™.
How big is the finished Journal?
The book is approx 9" square and 2 1/2" thick.
What techniques will be used?
The journal combines a mix of Hand Embroidery, Applique*, English Paper Piecing and Hand Quilting. You will also need a Sewing Machine for the book construction, although should you prefer you can of course stitch the entire book by hand.
Don't forget, in addition to the monthy instructions, there are also various 'a little happy tutorials' and handy tips on our Schoolhouse Website to help you along the way.
Will I receive exactly the same fabrics as used in the sample?
We will where possible send the same fabrics as Sarah used, however as this is now our fourth year running this volume, there will be fabric substitutions. Rest assured, Sarah will choose something equally as scrumptious and the journal will retain the feel and character of the original.
What other supplies will I need?
EPP Supplies: for example glue pen & glue refills if you wish to glue baste or thread if you plan on thread basting, however all the papers are supplied.
Piecing Thread: Sarah used Aurifil 50wt #2311 in her machine and for the EPP, she then switched to 80wt for the applique.
Tools: Hand sewing needles for the applique, EPP, Embroidery and Hand Quilting, a 7" embroidery hoop and your usual patchwork and sewing related tools.
Can I purchase the pattern on its own?
No, not at this moment in time...... Sorry!
