Fill your mugs or glasses, thread your needles and get ready for RSN Sip & Stitch!

Get together with friends and share your love of stitch for the first RSN Sip & Stitch! Taking place on World Embroidery Day on Saturday 30 July, RSN Sip & Stitch is a celebration of needlework for everyone around the globe!   It is a brand new annual event encouraging stitch lovers to get together, in person or online to raise funds for the RSN.

Sign up as a host to have fun with stitch, and inspire your guests to contribute towards our mission of ensuring the future of hand embroidery and helping to create the world’s largest directory of stitches, RSN Stitch Bank. As a registered charity, with no government funding, every donation we receive means a great deal to us and everything raised this year from ‘RSN Sip & Stitch’ will go towards supporting RSN Stitch Bank, where we have just added another 25 stitches so there are now 225 stitches featured!

We have produced a wide range of ideas and themes to host your perfect event, from RSN Stitch Bank Challenges to different theme ideas including Stitch a Selfie, Postcards From Home and Wellness. We have also created a series of stitch templates.  Find out more below.
