Stitching for Peace
5th July 2019
In All Stitched Up! issue #155 HERE, we shared a ‘Stitch It Forward’ opportunity that Baerbel from The House of Textile Arts in Germany brought to our attention – a project known as ‘Stitching for Peace’. We were encouraged to Stitch a Peace Angel in 2018 and this year the project’s organiser, Ingrid Eggimann-Jonsson, is hoping we’ll join in and Stitch a Peace House – as we all need a house that can be our retreat from the, sometimes not-so-peaceful, world that surrounds us.
Ingrid has once again designed outlines for this years’ theme, consisting of a choice between three different houses. The designs can be enlarged or copied to a smaller size but should not exceed 36 x 33 cm (14 x 13”). The design can be worked as is or adjusted to your own liking then stitched using any technique you can think of.
