I don’t know about you, but I’m finding it harder and harder to be present in everyday life, even (and sometimes especially) when I’m stitching. There are a LOT of things to pay attention to, and I sort of always feel tired and overwhelmed. I’ve found that some good mindfulness, paired with cross-stitch, does wonders for my mental health.
I’m no expert, but I’ve explored mindfulness quite a bit over the last few years, and I think there are a lot of really great ways to pair it with an activity that can really tap into your creative well—like cross-stitching!
So in addition to stitching each month, we’ll also talk about things like bringing extra mindfulness and presence to your creative process, whether you’re stitching, writing, singing, or dancing!
We’re so confident you’ll love being a part of the Stitch People Club that we’ll refund whatever you paid for your first month of membership if you ultimately decide it’s not for you (for new members only).
While we truly hope the Stitch People Club makes your life better, we realize that it’s a tough standard to meet. Give us a shot to see if we can meet it!
We’ve specifically designed and crafted the Stitch People Club to make it a no-brainer for everyone to join!

I had just graduated college as a graphic designer when I finally faced my depression and anxiety head-on. To help me relax and re-center during this tough period of life, I went back to some of the things I remembered loving as a kid: Backstreet Boys, trampolines, Butterfinger bars, and cross-stitch.
While waiting for an doctor appointment, I flipped through a Martha Stewart magazine and saw the concept for cross-stitch characters. The idea was great, but I didn’t love the designs—so I developed the signature Stitch People® style of characters and started selling finished family portraits online to bring in some extra cash.
After designing and stitching several hundred portraits, I saw that people online were interested in making their own portraits. I took all my designs and put them in a book (Do-It-Yourself Stitch People) to help people make their own!
Now I want to help people tap into their innate creativity with cross-stitch (sprinkled with a bit of meditation and breath work) and a community of like-minded stitchers all working to better themselves, too!
Great question! Every month, you’ll get:
We’ll likely be adding to this list over time. How will that affect the price? We’re not sure yet! We’re going to be adjusting as we go, so bear with us as we find the right balance of benefits and costs!
Nope! Sign up for a month here and a month there, binge-watch all the previous class videos, and then take a break!
It’s definitely something we’re considering. If that’s something you’d like to take advantage of, send Spencer an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know!
In the My Account area of the website! You’ll be able to manage your membership, access videos, download patterns, get support, and more!
The Stitch People Club Schedule will be available in your My Account area. We typically try to plan a few months ahead so you can put it on your calendar. But don’t forget—we record the classes so you can watch them later! (We don’t record the Sip & Stitches)
Memberships renew on the same date as initial signup each month. e.g. If you sign up June 20, you’ll renew on July 20.
Monthly Club patterns available for download on the 1st of each month. Dates of classes and Sip & Stitches vary from month to month.
Absolutely, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to manage your own membership. You can make adjustments from the My Account area.
Because the pandemic really did a number on the crafting industry at large, and we haven’t been immune. Things that once worked for us are no longer working, so we’re looking for ways to adapt while also staying true to our driving desire to create high-quality content and patterns.
