Thank you for visiting &Stitches!

Since the blog has not been active for over eight years, and some images have gone missing, we have decided to remove the archive of the blog. Sorry to disappoint if you came here looking for a particular post.

Thank you and farewell

Dear friends,

We have an announcement today. For some time we have had discussions about the future of &Stitches. Short term and long term. But all the while ignoring the stumpwork elephant in the room.

Neither Nicole, Julie or I currently have the time or focus to properly devote to &Stitches to make it the awesome blog we want it to be. Other commitments and life in general have come in the way. And we can hardly demand more of the rest of the team than we do of ourselves.

So we have decided to no longer post on the blog. The archive of posts will remain, of course.

We know it's quite the bombshell to stop the blog. But when we finally faced the realities of the time we're (un)able to devote to &Stitches, it was also with a sense of relief to make the decision. Albeit not an easy one.

Although &Stitches is a blog, we feel that it is more than just that. It's a community of people who love stitchy things.

We want to thank you, old and new readers, for following &Stitches. For your comments, your emails, for volunteering in Summer Bloggin'. Thank you for sharing your creativity when taking part in stitchalongs and competitions. It literally wouldn't have been the same without you.

Big stitchy hugs from
Nicole, Julie, Carina &
Aimee, Cate, Christine, Rebecca and Sophie.

What are you stitching? Please share in the &Stitches Flickr group. We'd love to see it!
