Our community partner, San Francisco School of Needlework and Design (SNAD) is a relatively new nonprofit on Union Square whose mission is to promote and share the knowledge and history of hand embroidery. One of SNAD’s activities seeks to include stitchers who aren’t necessarily able to visit the school in person by providing three-time per year Stitch at Home Challenges.
In partnership with Build a Nest, last fall SNAD received a donation of colorful upcycled crystals from Swarovski. (these crystals are available for sale at Britex Fabrics on the third floor of the brick-and-mortar store) Each using a packet of provided crystals, more than 70 needleworkers from 10 countries submitted their take on the theme, Jewels of the Sea, incorporating remarkable creativity. The sparkling exhibition, which includes embellished urchins, dancing jellyfish, tony starfish and an upscale sardine can, will be on display from February 4-March 4, Monday through Saturday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, at San Francisco School of Needlework and Design, 360 Post Street, Suite 604, San Francisco.
