We knew it! You love secrets!

After months of preparations – imagine to keep a secret a secret that long if you’re not good in keeping secrets – we have super fabulastic news to share!

We’ll run our very first secret stitch along!

And on this page you can find a secret coupon code. Hint: scroll down, and you’ll find it hidden behind a door :-).

0 weeks
of fun stitching
0 ornaments
with a nutcracker theme

It’s a surprise!

Starting the 1st of November, you’ll receive two patterns each week. It will be a surprise how the patterns look like until you get them. Exciting!

What’s the theme?

To give a little idea of what you may expect, the patterns have a nutcracker Christmas theme. Do you know that story? In America and the UK it’s a popular tale shared during Christmas season. It started as a fairy tale ballet, where little girl Clara enters a magical world with wooden soldiers, mouses and fairies on Christmas eve. You’ve probably heard the music composed by Tjaikovski.

There is no pressure!

We know the last months of the year can be hectic. So we kept that in mind when designing this stitch along.

As each pattern results in an individual ornament, you can always decide to only stitch a few pieces and leave the others for next year ;-).

What is a secret stitch along?2021-09-23T09:55:57+02:00

With a secret stitch along 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 2021 will be the first to finish a fun counted cross stitch kit that will only be released in our fall/winter collection of 2022.

Is the stitch along suitable for beginners?2021-09-23T09:37:34+02:00

Yes! Actually it’s a great project for beginners as you’ll stitch small patterns.

We’ll also include illustrated instructions. If you still have questions, we’re always happy to help!
