Event Details

Slow Stitching.  Come and find your own stitching rythym. 

Meets monthly on the first Wednesday of each month, 5:30-7:45pm.

This series is based on the book, Slow Stitch: Mindful and Contemplative Textile Art, by Claire Wellesley-Smith available on Amazon and from other sites as well as most bookshops. You do not need a copy of this book to attend this gathering. This book is a resource; however, we will be discussing concepts raised in the book such as the principles of balance, connection, sustainability and rhythm as it applies to textile processes.
No hand-sewing experience? Come and learn in community.

Bring a few of your vintage/distressed fabric pieces, lace, embroidery threads, needles and anything else you want to work with. You may be surprised with the result of your experiments. We will explore many types of textile manipulation:
Embroidery. Boro. Sashiko. Knit. Crochet. Tatting. Felting. Hemming. Quilting. Paper Piecing. Hand sewing. Embellishing. Beading. Smocking. 
Dyeing. Distressing/aging.

Come and stitch with us. Bring your project. Teach us. Learn from us. Bring a friend.
Please do let us know you are coming so we will pull out a chair for you (and we do have limited space) - via phone call 504-302-9434, or email, or register from this page. Ages 14 through adult welcome!

If weather is nice, we stitch on the side porch. We will focus on learning something new each month, as well as continue any projects we are currently working on.

As with all our classes and workshops, you will receive 15% discount for any shop purchases when you attend any of our classes. Call us with any questions, wishes or comments. And thank you for Staying Local!
