Event description

Description

"Lauri is an excellent facilitator, extremely knowledgeable, creating just the right atmosphere for the session"

“Thank you Lauri for your time and guidance. It was a pleasure.”

A session of mindful stitching; give yourself permission to relax and pursue something you enjoy, or try something new.

Mindful Stitching Session

The session will involve a playful exploration of hand embroidery, supported by mindful practices, as a different way to be mindful. We will work with inchies or twinchies - sewing onto pieces of fabric or paper that are one or two inches square. This non-threatening size allows you to approach the session with a sense of playfulness and curiosity. Together we can explore various possibilities involving hand embroidery or stitching, before giving yourself time to develop your own ideas, which may focus on one inchie, or include several.

All materials are provided, however, if you have some lovely fabrics, threads or paper to use please bring them with you.

I have some small glass frames (hanging) available to buy if you wish, to display your finished piece.


The aim of the session is to be mindful within a gentle activity. If you have a finished project to take home this is a bonus!

Who Can Attend

This session is suitable for beginners to mindfulness and sewing as well as those more experienced in either area. I invite everyone to put aside their previous knowledge and experience (or lack of it!) and engage a Beginner’s Mind.
