From the Textile Artist Weekly Newsletter:
In the face of social distancing and self-isolation, it’s a sad fact that spending time in-person with others who share your passion for textiles has become an impossibility.
Maybe you’ve been looking forward to a stitch workshop that’s been cancelled? Or perhaps your local embroidery group is no longer able to meet?
And we know how disappointing that can be.
And without regular connections with your stitch sisters, it can be easy to become demotivated and lose your creative spark.
But we’ve been truly inspired by many stitchers like you and your determination to stay positive.
And that’s why we’re teaming up with some amazing embroidery artists to bring you the TextileArtist.org community stitch challenge. Every Monday for the next five weeks a different textile artist will deliver a burst of inspiration especially for you in the form of a short video workshop and a hand stitch challenge that you can do at home over the following few days.
