Stitching From France / 4-Part Live Chat from La Borie Grande / Ships May 2024

$ 75.00


Join Kaari, for four weeks from the South of France, for a series of slow-stitching days.  Gather up your old and new scraps, or reserve one of our curated kits and lets meet for an hour, once a week for four weeks, to stitch together.

Using an old French cloth and a mix of new scraps and rework blocks, we will practice the art of stitching to bring a calmness to our days.  Starting your day with a needle and thread is a great way to express yourself, and create something meaningful. Chats will include all things fabric and thread as well as peek into our life in France and the inspiration we find each week.

Our stitch kits come with everything you need for these chats, so you can take it with you on the go and join us from anywhere in the world from a phone or a laptop with the Zoom app.

Stitch Kit Includes:

French Cloth - an early linen or hemp cloth from France which we will use as the base or foundation for our stitching. Each cloth is from a very old grand maison in France - used as a household cloth, napkin or torchon. Every one is unique. These cloths were all made in the late 1800's in rural France and some show their age - but that's the fun - we will be patching and repairing along the way.  You will most likely need to soak, clean, dry and press your cloth before our workshop begins.

Additional tools to have on hand:

If you have your own scraps and would like to join us to spend an hour in France each week, gather up similar materials and purchase Stitch Chats Only, the cost is $75 for four chats from France.

Shipping costs will be refunded for all Stitch Chats Only.


Workshop kits will be shipped out in early May 2024.

Zoom links and recordings will be sent out to the email you sign-up with. If you do not receive your Zoom link one day prior to the chat, please email

All chats will be recorded to the best of our ability and sent out soon after. Due to the challenge we are undertaking - four live chats from France - there may be technical difficulties and we cannot guarantee all workshops will record. We will do our best!

Until France!
