RSN Sip & Stitch took place on World Embroidery Day on Saturday 30 July and was a celebration of needlework for everyone around the globe. If you would like to host your own RSN Sip & Stitch event, but didn’t get a chance during World Embroidery Day, you can still sign up and access all the free resources here.

How do I become a host, in person or online?


There are many places where you can host your RSN Sip & Stitch 2022 event.  Perhaps you are part of a stitch or craft group and you can sip and stitch in your usual venue.  You may decide to host the event in your home or garden, in a community centre, in your office, pub or park.

Have you recently taken Online Classes with like-minded stitchers at the other end of the country or on the other side of the world?  Why not organise a convenient time online for different time zones to include the maximum number of guests, and make it a truly international event!

All you need to do is complete the registration form below and submit it to the RSN. Then take time to look through all our free resources, choose your date and start inviting your guests!  We have featured lots of ideas to get your creative juices flowing as well as top tips on running your event and advice on fundraising routes.
