TextileArtist.org community stitch challenge 2020

The comfort of your home
Sunshine Coast Council

Starting Tuesday 24th March 2020, every week (for at least five weeks) a different artist will deliver a burst of inspiration in the form of a short video workshop and a hand-stitch challenge that you can do at home over a few days.

The challenge will be quick and simple enough for you to get involved with whether you’re a beginner or an experienced stitcher. And you won’t need any fancy materials – just some fabric, a needle and a few threads.

So far these amazing artists have agreed to take part:

  • Creator of stunning nature-inspired pieces Cas Holmes
  • Award-winning figurative stitch artist Emily Tull
  • Maker of beautiful minimalistic textile art Richard McVetis
  • Embroidered portraiture artist Emily Jo Gibbs

And our mum and former Chair of the renowned 62 Group of Textile Artists Sue Stone will be kicking things off.
