Welcome to the Vote As If SAL

Fabric by Witch's Garden Crafts
Floss by Dyeing for Sass

(Fabric & floss sold separately.)

Get out the vote with this colorful stitch-a-long featuring slogans inspired from protest signs in the USA and around the world. There's something here for everyone.

The Vote As If SAL is really colorful and is influenced by the palette in the beautiful Inclusive Progressive Pride flag. If you're not sure what all of the rich symbolism means, don't worry. I cover all of that in the SAL.

The pattern is made up of full cross stitches with just a few back stitches sprinkled in.

The Vote As If SAL is a Mystery SAL broken down into 18 parts. A new part is released each week on Friday from June 7th to September 27th, with the last part - a banner finishing tutorial - released on October 11, 2024. Just in time for you to show off before the next US election.

The cost is a one-time payment of only $15 and you will continue to have access to the SAL for as long as Notorious Needle is in business.

Floss by Dyeing for Sass

(Fabric & floss sold separately.)

Michelle of Witch's Garden Crafts has created an all-new fabric color for this SAL! The whispy gray is the perfect background to set off the vibrant floss colors in your project. It's available in multiple counts on aida and evenweave, including an opalescent option!

Jenny of Dyeing for Sass specially designed this colorful, acrylic thread organizer to coordinate with the SAL that will last you for years. It coordinate with her beautiful array of hand-dyed flosses. Included in the floss pack is 10 yards of each of her 12 flosses, plus black and white. That's PLENTY for this project, and even a couple of future projects!

Not sure what a stitch along is? No problem, it's all explained in this article.

What is a Stitch Along?

A stitch along is an event where a stitchy community gets together to all make the same pattern over a predetermined period of time.

The pattern is often delivered in pieces. Instead of getting the entire pattern at once, you get it a piece at a time.

For the Vote As If SAL, there are 18 parts, one provided each Friday from June 7th to September 27th, with the last part - a banner finishing tutorial - released on October 11, 2024.

How long will it take to finish?

If you follow along as the pieces are released, it will take 20 weeks to complete the Vote As If SAL, from June 7th to October 11th.

No rush! You can go at your own pace. It will still be here. 😊

Do I have to show up at a specific time?

Nope! Come when you like! The shopping list, pattern pieces, tutorials and community will be available to you 24/7. You just log in any time after the release.

How long do I have access?

Most people will tell you “forever” or “for life”. What they don’t tell you is that it really means for the life of the company.

The honest truth is that you will have access for as long as the Notorious Needle is in business.

How will I get inside after I purchase it?

Once the payment is processed, you will be redirected to the SAL page. Plus, you will receive an email with a link to access the SAL.

You can just log in to get the pattern pieces which be released once a week. Or you can go through the email reminders delivered directly to your inbox.

What comes with the SAL?

This is a digital product, so nothing will be sent through the regular mail. (See below for where to pick up supplies)

The PDF patterns will be released every Friday from June 7th to September 27th, with the last part - a banner finishing tutorial - released on October 11, 2024. 

The patterns will be released in different versions for your convenience: single page, multi page, black and white. color and Pattern Keeper

There will also be a supply list and video tutorials.

Plus, you can join the free Notorious Needle Ninjas Facebook group and be part of a community of like-minded stitchers.
