What is Meditative Stitching?

It’s the deliberate hand stitching of lovely small pieces of fabrics joined together to make a pleasing composition. Why? To still your mind, to be absorbed in the lusciousness of the moment and the materials. We’ll use silk, linen, wool, hand-dyed cottons, ribbon, yarn, lace, or beads. Each small 4” composition tells a story and takes you on a journey. We’ll address design principles and sources as well as color theories related to the project. Individual attention will be emphasized. Students can expect to complete two to six compositions.
