The RSN is passionate about keeping the art of hand embroidery alive and RSN Stitch Bank aims to digitally conserve and preserve every stitch in the world to be the biggest repository of stitch. Every year, stitches are lost as they fall out of use or through general wear and the age of the object. Textiles also continue to be threatened by changes in manufacturing processes and more aggressive issues of war, neglect and destruction.
RSN Stitch Bank was launched in September 2021 with the first 150 stitches to kick off celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Royal School of Needlework. There are now a total of 225 stitches featured on the website, with 25 more being added on World Embroidery Day! RSN Stitch Bank is free for all to use.
