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.
