Ami has been running The Stitch School since 2014 with the aim of helping children learn how to sew by hand and how to use a sewing machine. Over 150 children have attended the regular workshops held at Simply Needlecraft in Swadlincote since it began, giving them the opportunity to learn new creative skills and make beautiful fabric craft items in a fully supported environment.
In 2017 Ami entered the Stitch school into the festival of quilts and with lots of hard work from the students managed to secure 3rd place! A great achievement for the children involved, some of which had never sewn before joining the stitch school.
With the current lockdown lifestyle it has now become hard to run our sewing classes in person.
We are pleased to announce that the stitch school is going online!
