2015 SAL

2015 is nearly upon us, which means it is time to get our stitching plans in place. As you probably know, the Smalls SAL will return for 2015. The rules are super simple, the projects are small, and, best of all, it’s fun!



  1. Stitch a small every month. You get to decide what a small is for you. 50×50 stitches? 100×100 stitches? It’s up to you. You just need to be able to get it done by the check-in day. (WIPs that you complete in time for the check-in are great too!) You pick your design, I do not provide designs.
  2. Post a picture of your completed small (stitching done, but the actual finishing is optional) on the last Wednesday of every month.
  3. Hop over here to my blog and add a comment to the current month’s check in post to get an entry into the end of the year draw.
  4. You do not need to post a finish every month! Stitch what you can when you can, and check-in whenever you have a qualifying finish.
  5. The SAL is open to new participants all year. You can join in whenever you’d like. The more the merrier!

Also, please consider using the above graphic to link back to this page so other people can find out about the SAL and join in the fun.

  • January 28

    i am a avid smalls stitcher but not that great at blogging. I am trying to get more into blogging and joining a smalls sal will hopefully get me posting more. I am also known as marexstitch and have been active many yahoo groups and exchanges in the past. I follow a few of the bloggers in this group and this SAL sounds just perfect for me. Lately I’ve had too much going on and I am trying to get more into joining the online stitching community.

    I’m a latecomer to the group but happy to be a part of it. Love stitching smalls, that’s about all I do anymore, and I’m hoping this will help me stitch more.
