Exploring Your World Stitching Clubs


Where do you like to stitch? Around the house? Out in nature? While exploring your town? Or maybe as you travel the globe? No matter where you pick up a needle, if you like stitching cuteness, I'm pretty sure you're gonna enjoy the latest Wild Olive stitching clubs!

About the Town Stitching Club

This club is part embroidery and part English paper paper piecing (EPP). The result is a hexagon-shaped embroidered mini quilt that is almost entirely stitched by hand.

As always, embroidery is at the heart of the project. This club features six sets of tiny embroidery patterns representing favorite shops and spots you might visit while you're about the town. I like staying home, but if I were to spend a day with a friend in my town, we'd go to all the places these patterns feature. Each week's pattern is made up of three tiny designs, so you actually get 18 tiny motifs.

We'll be starting this club on July 11
, so read on to join us!

Each pattern fits on a 2-inch hexagon, and that's where the English paper piecing comes in. Along with the embroidered hexagons, you'll also make extra pieces and everything will fit together to make a mini quilt.

And because both embroidery and EPP are so portable, you'll actually be able to stitch while you're about the town!

Basic instructions for English paper piecing, quilting, and binding are included, though it's helpful to have some knowledge of embroidery. If you need assistance with this project along the way, I'm happy to help.

Plan to set aside a few hours a week for this, and you'll have a hand-embroidered, hand-pieced, and even hand-quilted mini quilt in eight weeks.

About the Town Stitching Club

In addition to making something cute, you'll also have the opportunity to connect with other club members by sharing your progress and interacting with others using the tag #AboutTheTownStitchingClub on social media.

The introductory price for the About the Town Stitching Club is just $5.00. (That's the total that you'll pay for the whole 8-week club!) Once the club starts on July 11, the price will go up to $8.00. Get in on the fun from the start!

Let's stitch about the town!


Part of the Exploring Your World series, the Out in Nature Stitching Club ran as an 8-week club, and is now available as a complete download in PDF format. Like the others, it combines hand embroidery and English paper piecing to make a mini quilt. You might even decide to do your stitching out in nature!

Out in Nature Stitching Club

This project features six embroidery patterns representing different elements in nature. The patterns are small enough to fit on 2-inch hexagons, but each features a mini scene.

The embroidery combines with English paper piecing to make a mini quilt. Full instructions and templates are included for EPP, though some embroidery experience is recommended.

The Around the House Stitching Club ran as an 8-week online pattern club, but it is now available as a complete download. This club combines embroidery and English paper piecing, and is suitable for beginners, while fun for experienced stitchers too.

Around the House Stitching Club

This project features six embroidery patterns representing rooms in your house. Or if not YOUR house, they're at least be items that are part of your daily life. And actually, each pattern is made up of three smaller patterns that you can use together or separately. So technically, you get 18 small patterns.

The embroidery combines with English paper piecing to make a mini quilt. Full instructions and templates are included, and some embroidery experience is recommended.

    Hi Mollie :) I have to admit I haven't finished the states.... BUT I'm still excited about the new around the house project. I went instantly to sign up. And yes I will be getting all 4, not to say they will get finished, I will give it my best shot! If not they will go in my someday retirement stash. Thanks for giving us such cuteness. Sandy

  3. Just signed up! I also have not finished the states :(, but am excited for this new project. I am going to try my best to not get behind. Smaller projects are much easier for me to tackle at this point in my life. Thank you!

    1. I just grabbed what made me happy from my stash, so I don't even know what all of them are. I do know that the orange was a JoAnn Keepsake Calico, but it was nearly two years ago.

  8. Count me as another one who hasn't finished the 50 states yet, but how can I resist a new club? :)

  9. Hi! I love the first pattern! I was just wondering when we would get the info for using all 4 themed patterns to make the bigger quilt not to make the mini quilt? Thanks!

    1. Hi Whitney! I was supposed to mention that in my first email, and I got distracted by all the other things. Sorry about that! It will be there in the next email. Meanwhile, you can stitch the first hexagon as for the mini quilt. Or...send me an email and I'll fill you in right away.

  10. Hi Mollie! I was just curious if you're going to be doing another stitching club this year? I missed your Around the House one, but I'd love to join the next one. :) Thank you!

    1. Yes! Another club will be coming soon, so watch for details!

  11. Hi Mollie. Can you go at your own pace or is this a hands on must do during specific times kind of thing? And seriously it's only $8 to join all at this time?

    1. This is definitely work at your own pace. But, if you embroider a hexagon a week, plus make a join a few extra pieces during that time, you can can take a couple weeks to finish it all off in a total of 8 weeks.

      Around the House Stitching Club ended as a weekly club, so if you purchase now you'll receive all of the patterns and instructions at once.

      And yes, it's just $8.00 per club! A new session with new patterns will be opening soon, and it will be priced separately.
