empower women through handmade crafts
Stitch & Bloom was founded to teach struggling Chinese women handcraft and business skills that will help them provide for their selves and their families with their own two hands.
Stitch & Bloom provides vocational training opportunities to women residing in impoverished
rural areas through the designing of practical patchwork products made with various fabrics, as well as streamlining the production process so that compact “kits” can be sent out to the women in the rural areas by post. The products are then completed in their own homes, without the need for complicated tools and equipment. They can stay home and work, tend to their families, and not have to travel and work at far away factories.
Since 2006, Stitch & Bloom has partnered with women throughout 13 Chinese provinces. These women are currently producing beautifully handcrafted products of the highest quality, and the differences these opportunities have made in their lives are incredible.
In addition to our online store, their products can be purchases at the annual Victoria Park Lunar New Year fair, and at our office as well!
