Roundup of Stitch-A-Longs Beginning in January 2023

Happy New Year! While long term stitch-a-longs (SALs) can start anytime, January is often the month for cross-stitch designers to share their plans for year long SALs. But if none of these patterns ‘cross your stitch’, come back to see what will be starting in February!
