FRIGHTFUL Mystery Sampler Sneak Peek!

It's that time of year again....Mystery Sampler Time!!!

If you haven't heard, we decided to do another Mystery Sampler, and Part 1 is available NOW!!

Our Halloween mystery will be unfolding in 3 parts for a summer of stitching suspense. Part 1 is available NOW...including the optional embellishment pack. Part 2 will be available mid-August, with the final Part 3 coming in mid September.

Just like all mystery samplers, you can't see a pic of the finished sampler yet. I know...that's why it's called a mystery sampler!

But here's a sneak peek photo with the threads we used. Can you uncover some of the mystery by studying the pic below?

It's Halloween Mystery Sampler Time!

Ready for a summer surprise? We're doing another summer mystery club, and we can't wait to share the news with all of you. Introducing our...

FRIGHTFUL Mystery Sampler Club!

We are partnering with our friends at for our 7th mystery sampler.

What's a mystery sampler? Many of you know because you have joined us for previous Mystery Sampler projects. But for our rookie detectives, it's a sampler that unfolds in parts. The big mystery is...what will it look like?! Because unlike every other L*K project, there is NO PHOTO on the front (I's mysterious!). You receive a portion of the design for 3 months. As you stitch, the project develops and the mystery unfolds!

Mystery Samplers are so fun and popular because it's a giant club with stitchers literally all over the world. And it's our favorite kind of club, because EVERYONE is invited and warmly welcomed.


* 3-part series will be available on July 16, mid-August and mid-September (finished in time for Halloween, of course).

Stitch Count for FRIGHTFUL is 82W x 283H. It's a tall, skinny sampler.

FRIGHTFUL is stitched on Natural Light linen. This beautiful neutral color is available in 28 or 32 count linen, or  Aida. You can also personalize with your own fabric choice.

FRIGHTFUL was stitched with lovely overdyed threads from Weeks Dye Works. We used 11 skeins for the entire project, not including the bonus design. There are also DMC equivalents available.

* We are including a BONUS project with Part 2 of the mystery. More about that later!

FRIGHTFUL Embellishment Pack includes goodies for the large sampler as well as the BONUS design. We've selected some fun buttons from Just Another Button Company as well as beads from Mill Hill.

*We will also have a FRIGHTFUL Mystery Sampler Needle Nanny! Our gal pals at Zappy Dots are making us a spooky collectible FRIGHTFUL"dot". It's the perfect place to park your needle while you're watching the mystery unfold.
