Sharing your cross stitch pieces with others is an important way of raising awareness of, and encouraging conversation about, the issues that matter to you.

We are no longer accepting pieces for the Stitch & Resist exhibition (2 July – 6 August 2021), but we are still collecting them on the website!

If you have further questions about submitting your work, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
