Cindermice Stitch-along FAQs

  • What is the Cindermice Stitch-along?

The Cindermice stitch-along is Christmas needlework project that we hope you will join us in! Sophie Simpson, author and designer behind What Delilah Did, has teamed up with Cloud Craft to bring back the very popular Cindermice kits, updated for 2016 with beautiful new colours.

There are 3 exclusive, limited edition kits to hand stitch the most beautiful heirloom Cindermice decorations. Everyone who buys a kit (or a PDF pattern - see below) will be invited to join the stitch-along, with video tutorials by Sophie to help them on their way. Please note, the videos show last year's colours so will be different from the colours in this year's kits.

PDF patterns for all 3 decorations are also available to buy at

All boxes will be shipped via 1st Class Mail for UK deliveries and standard Airmail for international deliveries.

You will get basic instructions in the box but please note the stitch-along is primarily video based so you will need access to the internet to watch the videos.

The finished decorations are between 12-14cm tall and 6-8cm wide (excluding the hanging loop).


  • Who is it suitable for?

The kits have been carefully designed to be suitable for confident beginners and those with more experience. Sophie’s video tutorials will guide you through all the stages of the process. The kits are not suitable for small children. They may be a good project for teenagers, depending on their level of dexterity.


  • What else will I need?


You will need to have a few other tools to complete the project including scissors (general and embroidery), pins or wonder clips, a pencil, a wipe-off marker and craft glue. It’s also handy to have haemostats.


  • How can I join in?

We’d love to you join us for the stitch-along! We’ll be using Instagram to share updates. We hope you’ll post your progress or come by to see how everyone is getting on using #cindermicestitchalong.


  • How much does it cost?

The prices of the kits are the same as last year, and include postage so there is a different price for UK customers and International customers.

  • How do I pay?

Simply choose the kit(s) you would like (making sure you choose the right one depending on whether the delivery is for the UK or International).  Payment will reserve you your kit(s).  We use Paypal to take payments, which accepts all major debit and credit cards. You do not need a Paypal account to make a purchase. No payment or card data are held by us on our systems. Please note, you can pay for a kit any time after the release date but the box will not ship until 21st October (please see above).  If you buy any other items at the same time as the box(es) they will be sent separately and you will be charged postage.


  • Can I cancel?

You can cancel any time up to 2 days before 21st October.  Kits will be prepared especially for you and are therefore not returnable.
