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!

Secret Pirate Ornament Exchange photo OrnamentExchangeBanner_zpsfdc4fec3.jpg

:bulletyellow:  With four lovely days left to get signed up and get your ornament finished, we are listing the participants and are now ready to take your submissions!  Yes, it's okay to share your pretties here so everyone can see your pretties but you still won't know which pretty you will be receiving!

:bulletorange:  Please send a note to Katjakay and provide your mailing addresses as we are trying to keep the secret part as secret as possible :D  What will happen is this:  random generator will provide a list of who is sending to whom, at which time Katjakay will note the sender with the mailing address of your giftee.

:bulletpink:  Remember:  You will be sending your ornament out to your giftee no later than December 15!  If you cannot mail overseas, let Katjakay, SpitfireFae or Mattsma know and we will figure it out from there....this should be fun and NOT stressful :ahoy:

PARTICIPANTS (more will be added as they come in)

The winter season is upon us and to get everyone in the holiday mood, your three wonderful judges have decided to host this small, little, ‘mini contest’ with the prizes being made by the participants.

We would like as many crewbies to participate as possible to make this exchange as special as it can possibly be! If you would like to participate let us know in the comments or send one of us a message.

And yes, scalawags and wenches, yer judges are participating in this event as well!

This is not limited to ‘Traditional Christmas’ themes as there are several wonderful ornament patterns out there with different ways to finish them as well.

Timeline for this event: November 3rd to November 30th....short and my candy canes!

November 30th: all ornaments must be complete and ready to ship.

December 1st: Using a name generator, one of the judges will be able to assign recipients for each crewbie’s ornament. After that, it is up to each person to contact the crewbie they are sending it to and get their mailing address. We would like you to send a picture when you receive the ornament so we can all ‘oohhh’ and ‘ahhh’ over them.

December 15th: All of the ornaments sent out by this time :ahoy:


Finish ideas:………

Places for cute free patterns:  and specifically……

***** Please do not sign up (or be shanghaied if ye don’t think ye are going to be able to send out yer ornament. We want everyone who participates to receive something. *****

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 :)
