We have launched our brand new year long challenge - Seasonal Slow Stitching Project. New webpage HERE.
Our Folk art Christmas weekend raised £702 plus gift aid for the Railway Children charity. Thank you very much to everyone who donated. No child should be living on the streets.
Welcome to Stitched Stories & Wellbeing
We are defined by a passion for stitching and a recognition that our personal stitch practices speak to our wellbeing. The home for both is the Isle of Arran, off the west coast of Scotland.
Stitched Stories began in 2018 as a 52 week challenge to create a stitched postcard every week, or as many as life allows. The idea quickly spread and is now in 24 countries around the world. During the past, difficult times, stitched stories has grown into a huge project that now runs several community stitching opportunities.
Stitching for wellbeing is my own professional practice. I am a textile artist and a meditation teacher and, in recent years, I have brought these two worlds together. My practice helps to fund Stitched Stories community work.
We have two exhibitions on at the moment. Both are over on our Exhibition section of this website. Additionally, our Stitched Conversation is hanging in the Barony Centre, Craft Town Scotland. Both are worth a visit.
