A Huge New Year’s Stitching Project for Charity
4th February 2022
Most New Year’s resolutions tend to revolve around getting healthier or fitter or giving up bad habits. However, one ambitious stitcher from Hull in the UK has decided to replicate Mucha’s Four Seasons in cross stitch to raise money for charity.

Anticipating around 1,000 hours of stitching and comprising over 120,000 stitches, Miranda van Rossum is no stranger to huge projects. She has already stitched a replica of Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, which raised £2,000 for the Hull Foodbank. This new project, which began on the 1st January 2022, will be stitched to benefit the same charity.

Miranda van Rossum is planning on doing a 24-hour stitch-a-thon, as well as some public stitching events in order to increase the amount of money raised. Not everyone is brave enough to take on a project of this size, but with the incentive of helping people less fortunate, Miranda is forging new ground.
