Learn Mindful and Relaxing Stitch Techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety. We've produced this FREE short project based course to try to help you relax and de-stress at what has become a very difficult time for everyone around the world because of the Covid19 Pandemic. Here at School of Stitched Textiles, we are firm believers in the power of stitch to help everyone relax and de-compress a little. Repetative running stitches are used for this cushion project, so you can lose yourself in the rhythm of the stitch without having to spend time getting to grips with complex techniques before you start. If you prefer, you can also just watch Gail sew her piece and watch as she progresses, as we know some people find that very soothing too. We've used basic fabrics and threads that you are likely to have around the house if you already enjoy craft, so you don't need to source hard to find materials either. You can adjust the colours and thread choice to suit what you have in stock and your own colour schemes. So, put on some relaxing music, grab a soothing drink and makes a start!
p.s. in an effort to reach out to everyone just now, we have made the instuctions for the course creative commons, so feel free to pass them on to anyone who you think would benefit from some relaxing stitching, even if they can't easily access the internet. If you want to reproduce them on your blog or website, feel free, but please do credit us for them. For those who can easily access the internet, you're welcome to pass on the enrolment page address so they can do the course for FREE themselves.
