Group Info

In the old days there was nothing and often solo Cross Stitchers wandered for months wondering if they were the only ones of deviantART that stitched. Then one day the founders met each other and from there it seemed Stitchers were popping up all over the place and they thought, wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a community? So, from that thought, Stitching Pirates was born and we look forward to providing you with the best community possible. Don't be afraid to ask questions, provide feedback! Without the people a community just wouldn't be what it is.

Why Stitching Pirates?

The name Stitching Pirates grew from the key pirate concepts that X always marks the spot and maps lead to something wonderful. The same applies to Cross Stitch and plus pirates are just awesome. Yargh!

:skull: Please, no ‘Legend of Zelda’ or other video game submissions :skull:

Question from Miskumi "Are multiple entries allowed?"  

Answer: Yes - but only if it is part of a complete set and in one picture. No multiple pictures will be allowed. However, the picture still has to be clear enough that we can judge the entry.  If you want to take individual shots of the pieces you can post them in your gallery separately and then link to them in your description of the piece.

Question from yellek911  Would fairies be considered as part of this contest?

Answer: Yes - please ensure that the fairy has an historical background in the comment section.  Fairies are known historically in Celtic tradition and in middle French medieval romances and a few really wonderful Victorian urban legends :D

True :) It's been a while since I've worked on any pieces, or been active on D.A. I will try to get some more pieces done over the next few months and post them to the group :)
