Lisa Mattock "Slow Stitching" One day only

Lisa is coming back to Cotton Rose for one day only. I am so looking forward to Lisa’s visit, her classes are simply beautiful and to spend time with her again will be awesome. I have added below Lisa’s description of her slow stitching, this is a lovely class and a great way to spend some time learning something new or just sitting and sewing on a Lisa project you have already started from her last visit.

Slow stitching

Slow stitching centres around the “make do
and mend” and “waste not, want not” ethos of yesteryear. It is a nod to the generations that came before ours in which reusing and recycling were necessary and admirable.

This is not a complicated process which relies on numerous fancy, perfectly executed stitches and fastidious neatness.

Rather, we embrace the timeworn nature of our materials, and the individuality of our stitching methods. Simplicity is key.

We are passionate fabric lovers, and we have a stash of “just because” pieces we’ve found along the way to prove it.

We love to hunt at flea markets, charity stores and church fetes for the cloth treasures and embellishments we will repurpose. We can lose ourselves in the online world of instagram and etsy... oh the possibilities...

All materials purchased on the day for the class will receive a 10% discount.
