Welcome!

Welcome to the website of Take a Stitch 2 Durham. We are an independent stitch group brought together by our love of stitched textiles, whether that be in traditional embroidery or contemporary works with mixed media.

We hope you will enjoy browsing our website to see examples of our stitching, exhibitions and collaborative projects within the community.


Below is a short slide show to feature recent works from one of our members. We hope this inspires you to take up the needle and explore the wonderful world of decorated textiles.

Our current stitcher is Sarah who is very accomplished at traditional hand embroidery. We are used to seeing Sarah working on long term projects for the RSN or her other personal works. But Sarah is also very accomplished with contemporary stitch. As well as the beautiful postcards we have been receiving, during 2021, Sarah followed Ann Myhre’s 6" Summer Squares project. For this project, she incorporates a range of different techniques with hand stitch to create a beautiful contemporary embroidery fabric book. The full set of free videos for this project can be found on YouTube by following this link Summer Squares project to start with the first video. We hope you enjoy seeing a different aspect of Sarah's work.
