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. Joanna is accomplished at both hand and machine embroidery and loves making photographic compilations of recent works for her Instagram page. Joanna says, she took the opportunity of the lockdown in 2020 to practise, practise, practise, what an excellent way to cope with enforced confinement! Here is a selection of her work.
