Stitchers Templates

With my Stitchers Templates you can create hundreds of different patterns to embroider on your crazy quilting or hand embroidery projects. They are easy to use, totally clear so you can position them easily and they are compact in your sewing box.

As a stitcher who loves crazy quilting I designed these templates with other stitchers in mind. My aim was to create a set of templates that are versatile, used in number of ways to stimulate your creativity, be easy to use, make non-designers into designers, not a burden carry in your workbox to workshops or stitching groups and be easy to store.

My Crazy Quilt Templates are made in Australia of a clear recyclable plastic, so that you can position the stencil correctly before marking the line using a quilter’s pencil.

Using the templates is easy. Just position the template in place and, holding it firmly with one hand, so that it does not shift, use a quilter’s pencil to trace along the edge of the template to create the pattern.

Both sets come with a PDF ebook that illustrate some of the hundreds of patterns that you can create with my templates. You can use the templates to create motifs and patterns for hand embroidered projects, or on crazy quilting or adapt there use to create embroidered beading patterns too!

You can buy these from our shop here


  1. I received both templates but did not receive the link for the ebook. Just noticed today that I should have received one. Been having a crazy time trying to use them. Please help.

  2. HI. I wondered if you sell your templates through any businesses in Canada or in the USA? I am on the West Coast on Vancouver Island. If not how much would it be to ship both sets to me . My postal code is V0R 1K4 in British Columbia Canada. Thanks

  3. Sharon, hi again. I love the CQ stencils and I want to order another complete set for my BFF. I want the two sets sent to her home in CO. Could you let me know when they will become available again.
    Thank you,

    1. I have sent you an email but it bounced back at me. Sorry I only take paypal as it protects you (from websites that are not secure) and me. Paypal will take your credit card and it is like a regular credit card transaction

  4. Hi, Sharon! I just ordered the set of templates via PayPal. I did receive an email from PayPal confirming my purchase. However, there was no link in order for me to be able to download the PDF ebook. Help. Thanks so much.

    1. HI Corkey The process is not automated as I attend to each order personally – in other words when the order comes in I send the link in email. I have just written to you so hopefully you got it OK

  5. Just received my stencils, sent under my daughter Janet’s name. I am so excited to get start using them, but, alas, I’m afraid the laundry must come first today. Thank you so much for all you do for us. I am enjoying the TAST challenge, although I have not post any pictures yet. Will do so soon.

  6. Sharon I could absolutely cry! I lost template #1. I’ve looked all over and was wondering if there was any way I can get a replacement? PLEASE, its the one I find I’m using the most. UGHHHHHHH

  7. Hi Sharon,

    Thank you for a great product. I adore the stencils. I have added a link to your site within the Resource Page in all of my CQ kits and also show the stencils in a live demo when teaching through the Embroiderers’ Guild of America. They will be especially helpful to new CQers and those who are hesitant to try combination stitches.

  8. I ordered and received your templates in 2013. I love them. Somehow I have lost the eBook on my computer. I should have printed it out. Any way I could get it again ? I would be happy to pay for it.

  10. Sharon, I don’t have Paypal. My friend has. Is it possible to order via my friend or will I have problems downloading the ebook? I live in the Netherlands.

  11. please can you quote me postage for a set of stencil to be sent to the uk. I have recently ordered some material from the US and got landed with inport taxes onto top of postage, just wanted to check as this pushed the price up a lot. Thanks C

  12. If you are on the fence about whether or not to order Sharon B’s CQ Stencils, jump over. I rarely used other stencils, I had spent $$ on. Since trying out Sharon’s templates, I rarely stitch without them and have sold my other ones. They are so versatile, fit in a small space, and my stitching is neater, and much more creative, thanks to her extensive free with purchase ebook. Also Sharon’s templates are acrylic and will last several lifetimes!! Thanks, Sharon for an answer to a stitcher’s prayers. Marianne in NJ, USA

  13. Sharon, I received my stencils and they are great but I never received a link to download the ebook. I have checked my spam folder and looked back over all my old email and it is just not there. Could you please resend it to me. I previewed the pages that you had on the website and I know that it will be a valuable tool. Thank you.

  14. I received my CQ stencils today & can already see the many uses for them,I can see them helping to mark for some of my free motion quilting as well.My grandmother had a set that my Grandfather had jimmied together for her,not as extensive as yours,but as CQ is my favorite type of quilting(I did my first in 1962 with a friend from Denmark showing me the basics) I know that I will use these for a long time.I have received nothing from the Paypal people re the download.Can the e-book just be sent to me via e-mail? Thank you,Shirley Sylvester,Canada

  15. Hello Sharon. My stencils arrived yesterday thank you. Loved the William Morris type packaging. Can’t wait to start my first CQ project. I had no problem downloading the ebooks. Do you prefer antique style piecing, or foundation piecing for your blocks?

    Claire Turner
    1. Hi Clair thanks for letting me know they arrived OK, I use foundation piecing – ie sew and flip but sometimes I do hand piecing and sometimes I mix them a bit – there are no rules

  16. Hello Sharon. I would love to purchase these templates, but do not have a paypal? account. I would be happy to email my credit card details, with my postal address in Victoria. Is this acceptable for you. I have not attempted a CQ before, and I think these templates will be invaluable. Claire.

    Claire Turner
    1. Claire sorry I only take Pay pal –
      Pay pal takes your credit card details and can use your credit card and it is much safer than emailing the details to me or any small business

  17. Thanks Sharon, just received my CQ stencils today, and I am so thrilled. Whilst in Melbourne last week I pick up so much beautiful antique ribbon, lace, velvet and bits and pieces at the Chapel Street Bazzar and now I cant wait to get back into my crazy quilting. Thank you for making my day.

I am in pondering in front of all these beauties, all these ideas which abound in everywhere a dream for a novice embroiderer ?

    Bonjour Sharon, Je suis française. Je suis tombée sur votre site il y a 3 jours, et depuis j’y passe plusieurs heures par jour… pendant ce temps là mon bee quilt n’avance plu !. Je suis en contemplation devant toutes ces beautés, toutes ces idées qui foisonnent de partout… un rêve pour une brodeuse débutante ?
    Je viens de commander les Stencils, j’espère que ces toutes petites choses vont bien trouver leur chemin jusqu’à la France 🙂
    Merci et bravo YORKETTE

  20. I have been reading up on my new stencils I just received from Sharon. I can’t wait to start using them. I know they will be invaluable once I begin. Thanks Sharon for such a wonderful set of tools.

  21. These stencils rock my world! I can’t tell you how much fun I am having using these! Seam treatments are so easy to set up now, and look so beautiful with the even spacing. I love the endless ways you can use these, and know I will be reaching for them every time I CQ. I couldn’t believe how quickly they arrived, and they were so beautifully packaged. Thank you so much, Sharon!

  22. I just can’t wait to get these. I tried ordering them a while back and they were gone. 🙁 I’m so glad I was able to get some this time. 🙂

    Thank you!!!!

  23. Bonjour Sharon,
    Je te remercie pour l’envoi des stencils bien emballés. J’ai hâte de pouvoir les essayer. Ils offrent tant de possibilités !!
    Merci également pour les téléchargements, çà aide bien pour l’utilisation. Tu fais de si belles créations, que çà donne très envie de se lancer.
    Douce journée à toi. Geneviève.

  24. Hi Sharon, I’m so excited. Just ordered your stencils. I have a problem with writing, etc as my hands shake badly, so it’s always very difficult for me to trace patterns … The stencils will make my life soooo much easier! I so often put off doing things because I can’t trace the patterns, but having the stencils to ‘lean against’ will allow me to trace easily! Many thanks for your great site. I discovered it a few years ago & just love drooling over all your beautiful stitch dictionary, etc! 🙂 Cheers, Wendy

    1. Susie the price is the same because they just weigh in as parcel letter and tis 6.50 if I pack them together they weigh in heavier and then go at parcel rate it is $13.70 so you can see its better to post 2 at the lower rate

  25. Sharon, I just love the packaging you made for the stencils; you are so clever. My friend I bought these for will be crazy for it! Will you please help me find the companion ebook as I have read all over your site for them but cannot find. It is much appreciated.
    Thanks, Cheryl

  26. Sharon what is your favorite marking pencil? I have not found a wonderful one for me as yet. Any suggestions from any of you all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Susan Brandli
    1. I use those quilters pens that disappear, quilters chalk pencils and quilters pencils – it depends ont he fabric on the block – Basically I have a pile of them accumulated over the years and use what works on that block!

  27. I have ordered my stencils and expect them to be delivered in a couple of weeks. I have downloaded the pdf and have had it printed and cerlox bound. I hopd you start a online class very soon 😉

    Scheri Manson
  28. Sharon, My stencils arrived this morning and was so excited almost did not know what to do. I’m in the middle of your sumptuous class, with the last three wks to go. I already have a few blocks to work them into, along with a boho bag I have pieced. Wanting to do your class first before starting any of them.
    I now again find myself not being able to download the e-book for ideas. I still can not get the stitch dictionary on my desk top computer, but was able to see them on my laptop. Some reason I am not able to even look at the e-book on my laptop. Any ideas would be appreciated, my friend with computer knowledge is in the hospital at this time. God wiling he will be home soon, any help would be great.

    Thank you for all the time you have put into this for the rest of us to share.

    Thank you,
    Joyce Bannon

  29. My mailbox was like Christmas morning today! I got my stencils and also the lace I ordered from the lady on Etsy you told us about. Just excited. I went over each stencil and was pleased none were cracked or broke so they made their way from the UK intact. Now comes the hard part-deciding and planning my first crazy quilt. Maybe I should start with a pillow. I plan on starting it in October so I have time to gather fabrics and plan. I have plenty of beads and buttons and embroidery floss. Thank you for the great service!

  30. My stencils arrived today in Louisiana, USA. I have looked at them and they look fabulous. That was quick service!!! Love the postcard you put in the package and how you presented them in the scrapbook paper was darling. I cannot find where my ebook is. Can you point me in the direction? Thanks a million and for those of you wondering if this is good buy, yes indeed it is!!!

  31. Hi Sharon,
    My stencils arrived this am, I haven’t used them yet but wanted to say thank out they are brilliant. I can’t wait to play with them.
    Thanks so much Sharon
    Love n hugs bearxoxoxo

  32. Sharon do I need an e-reader or an I pad to read the stencils? I don’t have either of them . But I would like to buy the plastics and use the patterns too for the seams 🙂

    Ati Ham Sas
    1. Hi Ati it is a pdf file so anyone can read it. Most computers have a pdf reader and you can get them free from Adobe. Also tablets have pdf apps that can read them easily.

  33. Just placed my order – I am so excited, they look wonderful. Hope you have lots! We have started a new cq group here and know the ladies will want the stencils once they see mine!

    Susan Brandli
  34. I would like to purchase your stencils. I am new to crazy quilting and learned of you through Allie Aller. I took her class on Craftsy and it is a terrific class. I have so much confidence now that I am embarking on a bedsize quilt for my granddaughter. Your stencils will help me enlarge my embellishing ideas.
