"Stitch Club has created an environment that is so warm and welcoming, so supportive and kind and non-judgemental, that people feel safe to pour their hearts out.
What a strange and wonderful phenomenon. It’s the most surprising and beautiful benefit of Stitch Club."
"The access to such amazing practitioners just blows me away. The exploration of materials, textures and colours, has been an exciting journey into the unknown.
The well-supported and encouraging environment creates a ‘give it a go’ mindset. Mistakes and risks are encouraged, which enables me to expand on my skills, and use my artistic license to have fun with my outcomes."

In case you don’t know us, we’re brothers Joe and Sam Pitcher and our mum is textile artist Sue Stone.
After decades of not being creative, mum gave herself the most wonderful gift. She reconnected with the stitch techniques she learned as a little girl sitting on her mother’s knee sewing clothes for her dolls.
Making textile art gave mum a new lease of life, which inspired us to create TextileArtist.org back in 2012.
Light in the darkness
When the pandemic hit in 2020, in-person stitch workshops were cancelled and embroidery groups put on hold.
We felt compelled to reach out to the textile art community, many of whom were completely isolated.
In collaboration with some incredibly talented artists (including mum) we put together the Community Stitch Challenge. For seven weeks we posted online workshops every Monday, each one exploring a different way to create textile art.
A stitch family was born
Creative people from all over the world came together.
"The community you have created is an incubator for bringing out the best in everyone. My heart is full!"
"A hugely positive focus in challenging times. The community of stitchers involved are generous, supportive and enriching!"
“Along came COVID, bringing with it lockdown, fear and isolation… but Joe and Sam did something no one else seemed to be doing. They gave me a sense of connection and a feeling that things would get better. It was a light in the darkness of those cold days.”
And, from the seeds of the Community Stitch Challenge, has grown Stitch Club.
"I have been surprised by how much I am enjoying stitching without a pattern or rules! No one is judging me.
I am learning new techniques and stitches every week from the Stitch Club workshops as well as from other members sharing their work."
"I have often researched textile art on the internet and would stare in amazement at the beautiful and inspired work I saw. But I had no idea how to start making myself.
Stitch Club has helped me understand that, with the right guidance, even a newbie stitcher like myself can express themselves in an artistic way through textiles."
