Community Positivity Creativity GiveMore

On a sunny June morning, we had the priviledge of meeting Tasmin and Alice, founders of ‘A Stitch in our Time’. They started their inspiring initiative, after a talk on the beach one morning. They wanted to mark these strange times in a positive and creative way, and they felt passionate about connecting the whole community.

Tasmin and Alice are friends who find inspiration in their community. They enjoy sharing their love for the outdoors, sport and creativity with their local community. They go surfing and sailing, and Tasmin loves being part of the Sailability inititiative, where they enable people from all backgrounds to learn to sail.

During lockdown, I noticed a new foodbank in my neighbourhood, and it turns out, it was Tasmin who started it. They were distributing about 28 parcels a day at one stage.

We chose Tasmin and Alice as our Muses of the Week, as they are truly living La Dolce Vita by sharing with others, in any way they can.

Join us in conversation with Tasmin and Alice in the video below:


If you would like to join in, you can still submit an embroidery patch until the 31st of July. There are instructions and loads of inspiration on their ‘A Stitch in our Time’ Facebook group.


Thank you so much for inspiring us all, Tasmin and Alice, people like you make the world a brighter place
