Liberty Sam lives!

Remember our old "standup kits"? I think the answer is YES because we've been getting so many requests for them to reappear. It seems there has been an informal campaign to "lobby" L*K and 123stitch.com to republish these oldsters?!

Our standup kit series began many, many years ago with a garden-themed bunny called Henry O'Hare (K09). I vividly remember assembling hundreds of these one weekend when my husband was out of town. I'm not sure where my kids were (I hope I remembered to feed them?) while I had a bunny assembly blitz in my basement. Back in the day we used to stuff kits with paper shred and our basement was a confetti mess for weeks afterwards.

Over the years we added to the "standup family" with 3 more bunnies, Santa and Mrs. Claus, Halloween characters and an Uncle Sam. Like many series, I never intended stand-up kits to be a series, but that's how it evolved.

Liberty Sam is back!!!

We're so excited to bring Liberty Sam back, nearly 20 years after he originally premiered. He sure is aging well...right?!

Liberty Sam Chart with embellishments

We restitched our model and managed to locate sources for the embellishments we originally used. They're not identical, but they look fantastic...and so does Liberty Sam.

Liberty Sam returns!

Liberty Sam will include the pattern and embellishments. The suggested fabric (or choose your own favorite) and threads are sold separately.

We can't wait to see ol' Liberty Sam back in circulation, just in time for his favorite patriotic holiday this summer. You'll enjoy getting him out year after year to celebrate the Fourth of July and all things summer!

Liberty Sam will be available SOON from our friends at 123stitch.com. Click here

Have a Happy Red White & Blue Summer!


  1. I am absolutely thrilled to hear this happy news!!! Please bring back all of them !??

  2. Uncle Sam is so cute! Love him!! Very nice finishing. I don’t think I could do it.

  3. I think I will have to stitch him. He is just so cute. Hopefully I can find someone to finish him for me.

  4. I'm so thrilled that your patterns are still available. There are so many I'd like to stitch, but hadn't purchased when you retired. Hope you're enjoying life!
