Event description

Slow down and make something new - slow stitching is a new term for creating beautiful, usable items from reclaimed textile pieces.

Slow Stitching is the practice of hand sewing with intention and thoughtfulness, whilst giving us the perfect time to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This is a simple process similar to Japanese Boro or Indian Kantha stitching, where the focus is on simple stitches and creating something beautiful with your hands.

What's included

  • Pre-loved textile pieces and material to choose from kindly provided by The Nest Haberdashery Thrift Shop
  • Tea and coffee facilities available.
  • Lots of friendly faces and great conversations

What to bring

  • General hand sewing supplies, if you have them – sewing needles, scissors, embroidery hoop, etc.
