Stitch Meditation

*Certified Stitch Meditation Teacher (CSMT)

by Liz Kettle of Textile Evolution

Creator of the Stitch Meditation Practice


What is Stitch Meditation?
It’s the deliberate hand stitching of lovely small pieces of fabrics joined together.  It's about the process of being mindful, it's an active meditation. By using simple stitches and calming breath, your left and right brain sections will stop arguing with each other and you can find FLOW.  In the end, you'll have a pleasing composition. 

Why? To still your mind, to be absorbed in the lusciousness of the moment and the materials.


The in person class price includes a "kit" including, silk, linen, wool, hand-dyed cotton, ribbon, yarn, lace, beads and other unusual materials.  

Each small composition tells a story and takes you on a journey. In this class we’ll address design principles and resources as well as color theories related to the project. 

Students can of course use their own perhaps meaningful fabrics, and I will have additional items available for sale.

Stess-Free Improv Piecing 


Two or Three Day Class

If you love good design and want to be more adventurous in your quilts, here is your chance to explore piecing improvisationally! We’ll talk about design, principles, and color choices related to the project. Improv piecing is a fun and playful technique that you will want to employ in any future sewing projects. You will learn to select the best fabrics, format, and how it all fits together for the success of your piece.   By cutting and sewing together, we’ll take the mystery out of improv while you apply your own unique ideas every step of the way. Individual attention will be emphasized, and you’ll learn many creative solutions to possible obstacles in the comfortable safety of a supportive experienced instructor. I know we’ll have a GREAT time!!
