2022 Charts for Charity

We're so excited to be doing another round of #ChartsforCharity2022 this year!  You may have seen a few launch on Instagram over the last few days, so I wanted to give a little insight into what specifically this campaign is for and link all of the artists charts in one place! We also recommend following the #ChartsForCharity hashtag on Instagram to be informed when new ones launch. 

 

What is Charts for Charity?

  • A few years ago ago, a few artists got together over Instagram DM and threw out the idea of launching a winter themed chart for a lower price point with all of the money going to a charity of the artist's choice. We loved the idea so we all started to design our charts and pick our charities.  
  • Over the next few days, you'll see different charts launch on Instagram from all different artists. We also encourage other artists to join in (and even stitchers!) to sell charted designs for charity. 
  • Some charts will be removed on December 31st-January 1st, 2023 so we suggest purchasing now if you are interested! 

Why did you decide to use charts?

  • There's a few advantages to using charts that we wanted to share: 
  • It provides a needlepoint design to customers at a lower price point
  • It's a quick way for us to get a design out to you (& more sustainable than shipping and packaging)
  • It's world-wide; you don't have to worry about shipping costs! 
  • Charted designs are popular in other parts of the world (and very popular for cross-stitch) so we wanted to bring some awareness to charted designs in hopes that they may stick around in the U.S.! 

Where do I get supplies?

  • The main supplies you need are blank needlepoint canvas and fibers! Most LNS will sell blank canvas, so we recommend supporting them if possible. 
  • Feel free to use fibers from your stash at home! These charts are great stash busters. 
  • Some artists may even sell extra mesh and fiber: reach out to them if you're interested (we may be offering it for our chart)

How do I stitch from a chart?

 

Artists Who Are Participating

Morgan Julia Designs - "Lift Ticket"

  • Charity: The Organization I chose to support this year is NAMI: National Alliance on Mental Illness. In NAMI's words they, "provide advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental illness can build better lives." They offer a call and text hotline and a crisis line at 988. 
  • Mental health advocacy and support is something that is incredibly important to me (I proudly take medication & actively go to therapy) and I've found that talking about mental health helps breaks the stigma. Now through December 31, KPMG will be matching all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $200,000 which makes this organization even more impactful. Our chart will be removed on December 31.
  • Chart: Our chart is $15 and can be purchased directly on our website via this link.

This year we’d like to help give back to them and their families. Life is hard, let’s help make it a little easier for those around us whenever we can.
