Our global needlework competition Stitch Your Heart Out is moving to 2021. With a new submission deadline of 17th September 2021, this will give everyone an extra 12 months to stitch something fabulous to enter. All competition categories originally announced in 2020, including ‘To Bee or Not to Bee’ remain unchanged.
Beating Around the Bush is a biennial international needlework convention hosted by Inspirations Studios. It’s all about stitching together, learning together and laughing together. It’s that simple. And that’s what makes it so good!
