“I would recommend any course at the School of Stitched Textiles, especially if you’re interested in gaining a new creative skill or developing existing skills. The courses cover a range of textile skill levels and take you on a creative journey that can really lead you anywhere you want to be as an artist.
Personally I don’t think I would be where I am today without studying this course as it pushed me out of my comfort zone to discover my own style as an artist and gave me the confidence to put my own artwork out there.”
Beth Rhodes – Hand Embroidery (Skill Stage 2)
Benefits of our Courses
If you have a personal or professional crafting ambition then our courses have the ability to take your creative passion to the next level.
Unlike other courses or tutorials available, an accredited course can unlock creative potential and creative confidence like no other course can.
Plus, our courses are recognised worldwide for their excellent standards of delivery, learning and assessment.
Patchwork and Quilting
(Skill Stage 2 and 3)
“I would definitely recommend the courses to others. Both courses have shown me that with the right guidance and support (from my family and the school), I can actually do it. And thanks to The School of Stitched Textiles, I’ve achieved more than I ever believed possible.
I now have my own business selling fabric as well as my own products, like gifts and home décor. “
