Stitching is officially good for you!
In the last few years hand stitching has grown in popularity as people strive to find a bit of low tech escapism from our busy world. Modern designers have been using stitches to create beautiful contemporary designs, inspiring a new generation to join in. What’s more, it’s good for you! Studies have shown that stitching seems to reduce your blood pressure and generally chills you out. Don’t get me wrong, zooming along with a sewing machine is fab too but sometimes there’s nothing better than having time to focus on each and every stitch in peace and quiet. Zen. What’s more, it’s portable as you don’t need lots of fancy kit.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, pop over to our Pinterest boards, where we showcase some lovely stitching from around the world – from cross stitch to Japanese Sashiko embroidery. It’s also where you will find a great selection of stitching tutorials if you fancy learning something new.
Nicole has always loved sewing. Frustrated when the felt toys she made for her children looked bobbly and stretched after a few plays, Nicole looked into sourcing better supplies and finally found 100% wool felt. It was the biz! Everything she made with it had a better finish and stood up to being played with by her 3 small boys. She started selling 100% wool felt on Etsy and gradually added other lovely, often hard to find, stitching supplies, all chosen for their modern feel and quality. Now, with a slice of the web all of her own, Nicole plans, with the help of her lovely customers, to build a specialist, one-stop-shop for all the nicest needlework supplies and kits from the best designers and manufacturers around the world.
