This week we celebrate our stitching, embroidery, textile art highlights from 2019.
Susan Weeks, as the host of this popular textile art podcast, shares some lovely stories and highlights sent in by listeners from around the world.
We hear from some previous guests, from new listeners, from long-time listeners.
What fabulous and inspiring messages have been received – these will cheer you up.
And in this season of goodwill, Sue also appeals for a mentor for a young woman in Russia.
Let’s make 2020 a fabulous year for Daria! Who can help her dreams come true?
Stitchery Stories has a Facebook Page and an Instagram channel – would you like to follow us on either of those places?
The images shared with me via email are in the gallery at the bottom of this page.

Hi my stitch highlight this year (apart from all the lovely feedback I got from being on stitchery stories) has to be the unveiling of the Bee Yourself project where 1000 individually stitched bees from across BIRMINGHAM turned into one large tapestry project on display in the Jewellery Quarter it means that this year I have stitched with around 800 people on this project and others combined!
