Spring Fever… and another Threadventure!

It's time for a spring Threadventure!

It’s a beautiful spring day here in Alabama and I’m so, so grateful for that! We’re getting close to the end of our first (mandatory) week of “shelter-in-place”, but I’ve been observing #togetherathome for three weeks.

Wanna know something? I’m getting a little stir crazy!

I thought you might be, too, so my virtual passport is dusted off and we’re going on another Threadventure™.

In case you’re new to the Serendipity Needleworks family (or your memory is a little fuzzy)…

Threadventures™are virtual needlepoint adventures all around the world with me as your guide.

I take you to fun and exciting destinations where we explore different thread and stitch combinations related to the places we visit.

And the best part?

You can use those thread/stitch combinations on your very own needlepoint canvases.

So. Much. Fun! Right?!

Wanna know where we’re going first?

I thought you might. 😉

I’ll tell you all about it this afternoon at 3:00 p.m. CDT – during Needlepoint TV™.

Join me for the Spring 2020 Threadventure!

In the meanwhile, here’s a list of what to “pack” for our Spring 2020 Threadventure™

  • 13 mesh needlepoint canvas with edges bound (1 or 2 8″ x 8″ pieces)
  • 18 mesh needlepoint canvas with edges bound (1 or 2 8″ x 8″ pieces)
  • size 22 tapestry needles
  • size 24 tapestry needles (optional)
  • needle minder (recommended)
  • stretcher bars (I use 8″ x 8″ bars for my doodle canvases.)
  • tacks
  • scissors
  • laying tool
  • Fray Check or a Thread Zap
  • table/lap/floor stand (recommended)
  • magnification device (optional)
  • light (optional)

    • Welcome aboard, LaVerne! I’m tickled to hear that you’ll be joining us.
      Threadventures are always oodles of F-U-N!
      Ellen 🙂

  1. I’m in! Thank you for doing another Threadventure! Looking forward to the new threads, stitches and places we will go!

  2. I’m in…though not for sure what I’m in for! 🙂
    I work during the day so may not be able to watch live….

    • Hi Jill
      Thank you for joining us! Working during the day won’t be an obstacle to you participating. Each week (on Thursday around noon), I’ll post a new “destination” here on the website that spotlights a stitch/thread combination that you can use on your needlepoint projects. The weekly episodes of Needlepoint TV™ will be recorded, too, so you’ll be able to watch later at your convenience. Please reach out if you have any questions. I’m happy to help!
      Ellen 🙂

  3. Ok that sounds great!! I’m new to this adventure and
    I feel like I’m missing something with the Threadventure. I’ll gather the supplies and you will start us on particular stitches to complete on the canvases on your Thursday sharing time? 🥴🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

    • No worries, Jill. So here’s how it works…
      I release a new blog post every Thursday. Each blog post features a new stitch/thread combination. The stitches I share are not for a specific project that we’ll be stitching together. They’re just ideas for stitches and threads that you might be able to use on a future project. And we chat about the stitch/thread combo, along with other related things, during the weekly episode of Needlepoint TV™.
      I’m sure it’ll make more sense after our first “destination”. 😉

    • Hooray! I’m so glad it makes sense to you now, Jill. Please reach out if you have more questions. I’m happy to help.
      Ellen 🙂
