How Do Our Mystery SALs Work? What Is A SAL?

 SALs are a taste of Tempting Tangles quality at a very nice price.  

So what is it?  A SAL is an acronym for a 'Stitch A-long'.  

We all love a mystery!  In a Mystery SAL, we don't reveal the entire design until we release that final part.  That is the fun of it - a surprise!

Our cross stitch SALs are design of about 170 to 200 stitches.  

* The difference is this:  we divide it into little parts, post each to a special group or email to you, one at a time.  We post a Release Schedule on a special Facebook group just for that Mystery SAL. 

* Only those who purchase the SAL can join the group.  

* On the start date,  we post the first little part to the "Files Folder" biweekly.  These little bites are usually 16 at about 35 by 55 stitches square).  We continue every 2 weeks until we have released all 16  parts.  Many members will stitch each new part right away, some will save the parts and stitch later.

Take A Little Bite Every 2 Weeks

 *There is no pressure, no timeline, just easy stitching fun as  your "Bite Size" pieces are stitched into a full design.  Best of all, if you wish, you can show us all your pretty work as we stitch along toward the end. You can join our dedicated group on Facebook, or you ask us to email the parts (on our posted schedule) and stitch on your own timeline.  You will never miss part.  Please ask if you have questions.
