What is a Secret Stitch Along?2023-08-02T18:33:58+02:00

With a Secret Stitch Along – also referred to as a SAL – you buy a kit but you don’t know exactly what you will stitch until the moment you’ll get the pattern. The pattern is released in different parts, and only with the last pattern piece you will get the total picture.

Participants of the Studio Koekoek’s Secret Stitch Along 2023 will be the first to finish a fun counted cross stitch kit that will only be released in our collection of 2024.

Is the Stitch Along suitable for beginners?2023-08-02T18:36:14+02:00

If you’re a complete beginner we recommend to choose the kit with the antique white Aida fabric. It’s the easiest to stitch on this fabric.

We include illustrated step by step instructions in all kits, so if you’re up for a little challenge you can also pick one of the other options. We personally love the dark blue version. The blue fabrics make the floss colors pop.

And of course if you have any questions while stitching, we’re always happy to help!
