Stitch- that slow movement of thread and needle

Course Overview

Explore the many possibilities of stitching…

Explore the many possibilities of stitching – decorative embroidery, mending and upcycling clothing and household items, incorporating beads, buttons and other embellishments.

The Wednesday group at Timeless Textiles is currently working on a creative project, “Out of the Wood” – creating beautiful art works combining textile and fibre with recycled wood, supporting a community program , “Our Backyard” . Our Backyard is a unique program assisting the homeless by offering a safe parking place for those sleeping in their cars and other connections to facilitate living in a car to a more permanent residence.

To add another dimension to this wonderful weekly community, we are introducing the opportunity to learn and explore  a new stitch  or  “stitch” technique  each month.  The last Wednesday of the month will be our learning day when an artist tutor will facilitate an informal workshop introducing a stitch/technique. On other Wednesdays, participants may continue to explore that stitch or technique with guidance and come along, have a cuppa and stitch their own projects and enjoy the company of the Wednesday group.

Teacher Profile:


Katia graduated from the Moscow State University of Arts and Industry in 1995. Her exploration of various methods and mediums has led to a development of a more specific direction that sparked love in the realm of textile and fiber art.
