SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS Mystery Sampler!!!

It's TRUE! We're doing another MYSTERY SAMPLER, and we can't wait to share all the mysterious details with you. It's been 4 years since our other Christmas mystery sampler, Holly and Hearts. Our holiday hearts are ready for another mystery!


What's a mystery sampler? Many of you know, because you've been asking for another!  But for our rookie detectives, it's a sampler that unfolds in parts. The big mystery is...what will it look like?! Because unlike every other L*K project, there is NO PHOTO on the front (I know...perplexing!). Each month you receive a portion of the design. As you stitch, the project develops and the mystery unfolds!

Mystery Samplers are so fun and popular because...well, lots of reasons:

*It's a giant club with stitchers literally all over the world. And it's our favorite kind of club, because EVERYONE is invited and warmly welcomed. It's fun to chat with other "members" as the mystery develops. It's great for needlework shops because they get to see you/communicate with you every month. 

* We do lots of extra fun things - like developing new products - when it's mystery sampler time. We'll tell you below about our new fabric and thread colors and Needle Nanny (designed just for Spirit of Christmas), and some cool embellishments we're rounding up for you.

*We "gift" Mystery Club stitchers with BONUS projects. Spirit of Christmas will include one BONUS project with each part...3 BONUS stitcheries in all! You never know what you'll "unwrap" when your mystery shipment arrives.


HERE'S ALL THE "SECRET" SCOOP ON SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

* 3-part series will ship in early September, October and November (finished in time for Christmas, of course).

Stitch Count for Spirit of Christmas is 95W x 191H. Not too big, not too small, just right.

* Spirit of Christmas is stitched on lovely Heartland linen from Picture This Plus. We worked with Marilyn and the Picture This Plus gang to create a gorgeous neutral color. We'll have 4 fabric options...28 and 32 ct. Heartland linen, as well as 14 and 16 ct. Heartland Aida. All fabrics are precut with 3" border on all sides, serged, and individually packaged. You can also personalize with your own fabric choice.

Spirit of Christmas thread pack has 11 skeins of Weeks Dye Works overdyed threads, including an exclusive new color we requested especially for Spirit of Christmas! Miranda (WDW owner and color guru) and I are brainstorming a name for this subtly beautiful color, and we'll reveal that soon.

* There are 3 BONUS projects, one included with each Spirit of Christmas portion. These are each lovely little projects by themselves. Here are the BONUS projects, in the order they will be revealed:

Holiday Home 2 sided scissor fob  - 34W x 33H on each side - September
Christmas Love pin pillow - 73W x 27H - October
Christmas Is...mini sampler - 93W x 48H - November

* Embellishment Pack with goodies designed especially for Spirit of Christmas. This pack includes embellishments for the main sampler, as well as the 3 BONUS projects.

* For the first time, we're offering a mystery sampler Needle Nanny! Our gal pals at Zappy Dots are making us a beautiful collectible "dot" just for Spirit of Christmas. It's the perfect place to park your needle while you're watching the mystery unfold.

We'll be blogging soon with behind-the-scenes looks at the whole mystery sampler process, including our awesome suppliers/partners at Weeks Dye Works, Picture This Plus, Just Another Button Company, Zappy Dots and (of course) the busy goings-on at Lizzie*Kate. 

We know from previous mystery adventures, that you enjoy seeing all the prep and creativity that make a mystery happen. It's truly takes a (cross stitch) village to put one of these projects together, and we want to include YOU as we uncover the Spirit of Christmas Mystery Sampler together.

HOW TO SIGN UP???
Contact your favorite needlework supplier. They are taking pre-orders NOW.

Mysteriously yours,
