World Embroidery Day 2019
26th July 2019
For those of us who are passionate about all things needle and thread, the 30th July is a much-anticipated date on our calendars – its World Embroidery Day! Wondering how you’re going to mark this occasion in 2019? If you’re yet to figure it out, we have a couple of ideas that might just point you in the right direction…
Kelly Fletcher is once again giving away a free embroidery pattern in July to both encourage and celebrate hand stitching. This year she felt the time was right for a design that would promote more than just her love of needle and thread, so she’s gone with an environmental design that she hopes will keep a little more plastic out of our oceans. Featuring embroidered water droplets, ‘Water Tote’ has been created to use for all your non-grocery shopping and Kelly is hoping the simple, but effective design will act as a reminder to why it’s worth making the effort to keep our oceans plastic free.
San Francisco School of Needlework
If you happen to find yourselves in San Francisco on World Embroidery Day, the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design (SNAD) are hoping you’ll join them in getting out and about to embroider in public. They’ll be in the Bay Area encouraging people to join them with their needles and threads. For details on where they’ll be, stay tuned to their Instagram account HERE.
Whether you choose to celebrate World Embroidery Day with Kelly, SNAD, your usual stitching tribe or simply by yourself stitching at a local café, we’d love to hear how you chose to celebrate! Let us know how you celebrated World Embroidery Day 2019 by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
