Sublime Stitching Tea Towel Tour

Originally uploaded by IamSusie.

A few weeks ago, Jenny Hart started a thread on Craftster asking every one to describe their ideal tea towel. Behold, the birth of the Sublime Stitching Tea Towel Tour! 10 participants signed up faster than a lightning flash and agreed to stitch the towel within 2 days and mail it on to the next stitcher... These lucky ducks also got a free pattern set from Jenny!

The tea towel has already made the rounds of numerous stitchers, including 3 Flickr embroiderers, IamSusie, Sarahland, and Carol, who was apparently in a rick-racky mood. :) Wanna see what the towel looks like now? Check it out! This a great way to get acquainted with all those talented Craftster embroiderers!

Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on Instagram and my blog. My vintage transfer collection is on Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. That's my rocket! It's quite a rush to see my own crafts on other people's blogs.

    Sublime Stitching announced that they are going to be shipping this new and improved tea towel blank from their store: http://sublimestitching.com/blanks.html

  2. Your work is beautiful! I am seriously in awe of your detailed stitching and the colors you chose are just perfect! :)

  3. Flor, you have NO idea how perfect her stitches are in person. I just stared in amazement and said to myself "carol, go for some big chunky stitches because there's no way you want to stitch near that!" Really Susie, you are quite talented. Flor, I can only imagine the perfection of your work in person.

  4. Thanks for including the Tour on the blog. It is so cool. The only problem with being one of the first stops is that I don't get to see all the amazing things being added in person!

  5. I'm so, so jealous, and a little jealous I didn't get to be one of the lucky participants. So cool!

  6. What a super fun idea! Maybe we could arrange something like that here on our blog...

  7. Thanks, ladies! That's high praise coming from you both. We are doing a similar swap over on Craftster. We are each getting to keep our own towel this time.

    The only thing is that it costs a lot to ship the towels around if you use priority mail. Also the Canadian Post is notoriously slow to-and-from the USA.

  8. awww... high shipping stinks! :( But I would love to do a similar tea towel tour!
