A Year Of Blackwork

Welcome to my FREE 52 Week Modern Blackwork Embroidery Stitch-A-Long (SAL) called 'A Year of Blackwork'!

If you have never tried Blackwork before and like the look of the modern blackwork embroidery that I create then this is a great place for you to start. Don't worry that we are now a way into the year, it is very easy to catch up, or even just do at your own pace.

It will start on 1st Jan 2020, and a section each week will be released to my SAL facebook Group every Wednesday after that until the end of the year!

(Don't worry if you join late, the current chart will contain all of the previous weeks sections.)


Facebook is the best way to join in with this SAL, but I do understand that not everyone uses this forum. All of the files can all be found here, however you will need to log into a (free) customer account to access them.

If sharing your stitching on Social Media please use the hashtag #PeppermintPurpleSAL2020

I hope you join in and enjoy this, it should be a lot of fun !

PS. In case it wasn't clear, the SAL will be 100% free! However, if you wanted to 'buy me a coffee' it would be very gratefully received
