SYOA Letters from Hogwarts: Introduction

It's 11am, on Sept 1st, it's time to go to school...

As you have long suspected, you're a muggle born witch/wizard!

You received your letter from Headmistress McGonagall at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The magic is real.

What adventures await you at Hogwarts? Be sure to write home to your muggle family to share the magic with them...

"It is our choices, Harry,
that show what we truly are,
far more than our abilities."

- Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

You can open your letter HERE

A previous post on how Stitch Your Own Adventure works can be found HERE

A full floss list for the whole project can be found HERE

If you would like to use some beautiful fabric for this project then I have some good news! I have been working with Misty of Mystic Hand Dyed Cross Stitch Fabrics to create some fabric choices specifically designed for this project! She is selling her glorious work on her website HERE.

I will be doing behind the scenes posts in the months in between the Letters from Hogwarts chapters. If you want a picture of your version of the SYOA to be featured then please email photos to scunningham85 -at-

There is also a facebook group to discuss all thing SAL/SYOA, which you can join HERE

I do these patterns as a kind of Fan Fiction/Fan Art homage to something I love. The patterns are completely free. All the rights to Harry Potter etc belong to their respective owners.
People have asked me how they could show some appreciation for the time/effort involved, for which I have set up a ko-fi account. This is entirely voluntary, and much appreciated.
