Stitched Up Stories

You are invited to pull up a chair and join in a fun-filled series of online Story Events with our group of Sponsoring Shops from across the country!

Stitched Up Stories features a different designer each month in a one-hour Zoom session. We will get to know their humble beginnings, creative processes, and current obsessions.

Additionally, designers will share some of their own projects during Show & Tell time! There will be opportunity for Q&A, along with other fun surprises for those who join Stitched Up Stories!

Your seat at each Stitched Up Stories Event is just $20. This fee helps to support the Guest Speaker, as well as your LQS as a Sponsoring Shop!

Can’t make it to the Live Event? No worries! The recordings will be available to registered participants for seven days.
