About

Summer Stitch Fest is an online festival celebrating making clothes by hand. During the last weekend of July, makers are invited to participate, using any or all methods of making a stitch, be it sewing, knitting or crocheting and then sharing their handmade clothes on social media. Created by Sonya Philip of 100 Acts of Sewing, as a way to add more to the calendar of the slow fashion community.
