Stitch with PRIDE - the Alex: Community Health Centre

I want to thank everyone who purchased a Rainbow Stitches (Stitch with PRIDE) kit this June. $325.00 was raised and $350.00 was donated July 3rd.

After talking to a LGBTQ2S+ friend of mine I have picked the Alex: Community Health Center for the donation. They focus on health for homeless youth, including a Mobile Health bus but also have support for mental health and wellness. As I was reminded, when youth don't find support in their homes from their families they can end up homeless and on the streets. Find out more about the Alex below

New Stitching Stand - Built in Alberta!

I have a new stitching stand available, Trestles! What are they, you say!

Trestle are a European style of stitching stand used at the RSN (Royal School of Needlework) to support large Slate Frame/Stretcher Bars when working on long term projects. They support your work along both sides and can be raised and tilted to help you sit upright, not stressing your back.

The Trestles are made to order in 3 different wood types and can be special ordered in other woods (additional cost). Made to last a lifetime and with the fine finishing of classic handmade furniture, they will make an amazing centerpiece to your Craft-room or Livingroom.

$100 non-refundable deposit due when ordering and Robert estimates 4-6 weeks to process new orders. I will have a set of Walnut Trestles to show off at my Pop Up Event in August!
