February is a busy, exciting month filled with many noteworthy celebrations like Black History Month, Chinese New Year, and Galentine’s Day - but did you know that it is also National Embroidery Month?
For the past two years, DMC and Gulush Threads have teamed up to celebrate National Embroidery Month with a daily stitch-a-day challenge, multiple giveaways, and daily live streams and this year is the same with just a few additions to make this month extra sweet.
This year, unlike the previous years, has a designated pattern and a kit!
The pattern for this year’s challenge is completely free and is available for download here. However, this is just the basic pattern - to download an add-on to the pattern, head on over to our Patreon and become a $10 patron! The Patreon pattern will be the pattern I use all month, so make sure to check it out so you can stitch along with me!
The starter kit is also new this month and contains everything you need to get stitchy for the month including:
+ 7” Wooden Embroidery Hoop
+ 9” x 9” Natural Linen Blend Fabric
+ DMC Embroidery Floss (Eight Colors)
+ Pink embroidery Snips
+ Pattern Download (with Add-On)
Kits will ship out within 24 hours after placing an order (so you will get it in enough time to join along).

Now let’s talk about all of our favorite part of the month - the giveaways!
Every Friday, there will be a giveaway sponsored by DMC over on Instagram to spread some embroidery goodness to those wanting to get stitchy! These giveaways will vary between thread packs, embroidery thread cards, and promos to use over at DMC. To enter these giveaways, all you will have to do is like and comment on the giveaway photos (while also following Gulush Threads & DMC).
But what if you participate all month? Don’t you get something special?
YES YOU DO!
If you participate in the stitch-a-long and use the tag #STITCHVENTURE when you post your photos on Instagram - you will get entered to win a DMC package of embroidery goodness worth up to $170! The giveaway winner for this will be randomly selected on March 1st from the hashtag, so the more you post - the more chances you will get to win!
This month is one of my favorites of the year and I am SO EXCITED to share my love of embroidery with you every day! Check out the daily challenges below and get all of your materials ready, it’s time to get a little stitchy!
