Announcement    Hi there, I'm so glad you found my Stitch & Yarn store! I sell patterns and commission quilts with a focus on using upcycled and perennial fabrics – ideal for making memory pieces.

Please let me know if you have any questions before purchasing. While I'm based in Australia (so it can sometimes take me a few hours to answer if it's the middle of the night over here when you ask) I do respond to every question.

Happy shopping and thank you for your support! At the end of every year a percentage of sale revenue goes to helping women in disadvantaged communities to pursue their business dreams.

Cheers,
Tara

My #putyourfeetuppouffe pattern is now live on Etsy! With three different top options and ideas for sides and trim, this weekend project is great for upcycling old jeans along with all sorts of scraps in the stuffing.
Pouffe size: 20” diameter x 12” high.
Turns out the Handloomed quilt pattern makes the perfect Christmas cushion or throw. Three Christmas colourways have now been added to the pattern, so get a head start on your holiday making!
Wahoo! My Checks and Balances quilt pattern is back online. Updated with yardage for quilting fabric and an extra variation in both the throw and twin sizes of the original.
This quilt makes a wonderful memory quilt from favourite shirts too.

About StitchandYarnStore

On Etsy since 2015

Making centres and grounds me and gives me a deep sense of satisfaction. I'd like everyone to discover this about creating with their own hands.

I am a designer who is passionate about sustainability and reuse. I love all textiles, but my current mediums are quilting and embroidery (and a bit of surface design), with a preference for using recycled or perennial materials.

I am fascinated by the world's textile traditions and encourage support of those people continuing their practice to ensure they are not lost for future generations.

I’m conscious that textile art or craft is often seen as women's work and is, perhaps as a consequence, largely undervalued, even by those who make it. My current practice explores this, as well as the tensions between textile art and a crafts-based production practice; between choosing to be a maker by profession and the personal consequences of that in a western consumerist society; along with the impacts on our wider physical environment and those we might employee to produce.
