Winter 202325 Elizabethan Stitches

This winter we have added 25 stitches from the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries to RSN Stitch Bank. For this we have been working with Jacqui Carey, author of Sweet Bags and Elizabethan Stitches. These include stitches from the period that have fallen out of use as well different ways of working familiar stitches.

The RSN Stitch Bank has been made possible thanks to the support of the following Trusts and many individuals:

  • Aurelius Charitable Trust
  • Charles Hayward Foundation
  • Eranda Rothschild Foundation
  • Golden Bottle Trust
  • Leche Trust
  • PF Charitable Trust
  • Peter Cadbury Charitable Trust
  • The Weinstock Fund
  • The Worshipful Company of Needlemakers

The RSN is very grateful for this support.
