What is the Stitch-at-Home Challenge?

We have created the Stitch-at-Home Challenge as a way to encourage and inspire people to stitch. This is not a competition but a challenge. For each challenge we will provide you with an inspiration and you may use any needlework technique or combination of techniques in order to make a piece of textile art. Anyone at any level of stitching expertise may participate.

Who can enter?

Anyone! We know that many of you live far away. If you can’t come and visit us here in San Francisco, this is a great opportunity for you to join our stitching community. If you live close by, we encourage you to join us for our free weekly Stitch-Ins to work on your piece and also to come in and see your work on display during our Challenge Exhibition! 

What do I do with my finished piece?

Your finished piece of art belongs to you but for each challenge there will be a deadline for you to submit either a photograph of your piece or the actual piece itself for display in an exhibition. The Challenge Exhibition will be up for a month at SNAD and it is a great opportunity to showcase your work. With your permission, we will also display your work in an online gallery on our website.
