Keep calm and stitch on…

Creating meditational squares using boro

Slow stitching can keep us sane – which is why I have created this Zoom-based class to show how you can use simple sewing techniques and some Japanese principles to create small treasures. A daily 5″ square refines your skills and lowers your stress.

We can stitch together, share the techniques and admire each others work. We can discuss boro and sashiko, big stitches and not panicking.

If you would like to book this class for your group, please just send me an email and we can arrange a suitable date and time.

Slow stitching sewing kit

This kit contains:

  • a main fabric square
  • two squares of muslin
  • several patch pieces to sew on
  • sufficient thread to slow stitch your square, and
  • further instructions.

The colours of these kits are restful and rather boro inspired, and will include at least one Japanese fabric.

Price £6 including postage and packing – this kit is only available to UK customers.

Please note that if you are joining my Quilters’ Guild class I will start sending out kits in mid-March.
