World Embroidery Day

22nd July 2022

That time of year is here again! It is time for us to get our needles out, come together and celebrate World Embroidery Day on the 30th July 2022! 

We think that this celebration should be as important in the calendar as Christmas or Mother’s Day, so we’ve chosen our special World Embroidery Day projects, we’ve contacted our stitching friends, we’re icing the cupcakes and blowing up the balloons and we’re ready to celebrate!

There are all kinds of events being run around the world to mark this important day. The San Francisco School of Needlework always does something special, and this year is no different. They’re running an online class taught by Ukrainian Embroidery artist, Hanna Rohatynska that is available to everyone.

The Royal School of Needlework is launching a new annual event on World Embroidery Day to raise money for their Stitch Bank initiative.

Sip and Stitch encourages you to gather with friends and share your love of stitch by signing up as a host and inspiring guests to contribute to the RSN’s mission of creating the world’s largest directory of stitches. They have even produced some ideas and a range of themes, including stitch templates, to help you host the perfect event all whilst raising money for their Stitch Bank.

We’d love to see pictures and hear your stories of how you celebrate the day. Throw the streamers then thread your needles for the embroiderer’s favourite day of the year.
