Why Stitch in Time?

36595397_478123012638514_6271911364772495360_nMy passion for sewing began at the age of 21, when i received my prize possession: my beautiful, amazing, trusty sewing machine. I have always been a creative person with skills in the performing and visual arts.
For a couple of years I sewed for fun, made presents for family, and experimented with interesting designs. Due to my career teaching drama I did not have lots of time for my beautiful, amazing, trusty machine.

In 2016 I had a laparoscopy operation and was diagnosed with Endometriosis, an excruciatingly painful and mostly incurable illness. The daily struggle with the pain meant I had to have three months off teaching drama as I was unable to keep up with the children, or even keep a smile on my face at times. Shortly after returning to work I was (annoyingly) made redundant.
This is when Stitch in Time HB was born!28157811_1776646062374712_6133474076217311232_n
The name Stitch in Time was inspired by the struggle of this dark time in my life. During a teary moment my Aunt said,
“This is just a Stitch in Time.”
Which, I obviously did not believe at the time as I could not see a light at the end of the tunnel, but now I see her point exactly!
I look back on that time in my life and appreciate how lucky I am that my body has recovered and has reached a point where my Endometriosis is manageable, and out of these dark times came my lovely business where I am able to brighten up people’s lives with lovingly made products.
Each product made by Stitch in Time is a sharing of peace and love.

Coming soon: Endometriosis Awareness Bunting

Mindful Makers.

Thanks to the WONDERFUL Nova Collective, myself and the equally WONDERFUL Kamala Creations had the opportunity to collaborate our artistic vibes and merge into ‘Mindful Makers’ for the day at Mytholmroyd Gala on July 7th.

Meg 4

Using arts and creativity the Mindful Makers workshop explored the meaning on happiness, which in turn SPREAD THE HAPPY VIBES…. because after all, happiness is contagious!

It was a scrumptious sunny day filled with lots of lovely food, exciting activities, and fantastic music. Everybody’s faces were plastered with beaming smiles, their bellies filled with delights from the likes of Ricks Mexican (the best food in the valley, may I add) and The CO-OP’s freebies, and their ears perked by musical delights from Hebden Radio and The Orangebox’s young people. So, our task of spreading the happiness wasn’t at all hard to do, although I’d like to think we added that little extra in their hearts.

Rita Schiano says ‘Talking about our problems is our greatest addiction. Break the habit, talk aboutbunting 3 your joys’, and this is what we did.

Through the medium of creativity our guests were welcomed into our beautiful space to create mandalas and bunting expressing what makes them happy. The discussions had in our little happy corner were truly fascinating. From ‘days spent with family’ to ‘playing Minecraft’, all the happy vibes shared were THE BEST!

A truly happy day had by all!

 

Stitch in Time HB and Kamala Creations!

Thank you Mytholmroyd Gala, and all you amazing happy people.

Yours happily,

Mindful Makers.
