Christmas Rose Smock-Along!

Learn Advanced Smocking Stitches

Take a few moments for yourself  to relax and stitch.

Finish your ornament by Christmas

Let's Get Creative Together!

 - We will get started with a Zoom kickoff on December 8th at 1p.m. eastern time, and smock our ornament over the next 2 weeks. A second Zoom meeting will be scheduled the week of December 14th to get questions answered or just to stitch together.

- 10 videos will walk you through prepping the fabric for smocking, each of the 4 smocking stitches, constructing the ornament and making the ruched rose topper. Videos will be available for the next 6 months so access anytime it is convenient for you.

 - The Christmas Rose Ornament will teach and review 4 advanced smocking stitches: Barbed Trellis, Closed Herringbone, Cretan and Raised Chain. The Ornament is also beaded.

 - Kit choices include pre-pleated red, white or green fabric, 3 skeins of floss, 3 colors of beads, ribbon and a styrafoam ball.


When & How to Participate:

Registration is open now through December 8th.

I hope to see you in the Smock-Along!

Welcome to the


Hi, I'm Lisa, the owner of Pink Hollybush Designs. I love to sew, smock and embroider. Creating a special garment for a loved one brings me such joy. I design patterns that are easy to sew and wear  - perfect for today's busy mom and active child. I would love to teach you how to make them. So grab a cup of tea, and come join me - we won't be rushed but will go at a slow and steady pace. Take a few moments for yourself this holiday season, make some new sewing friends, and expand the knowledge of  your favorite hobby!

I originally just watched some of your you tube videos to learn how to start. Following along as you do each step has been amazing."— Ginny B.
