We know how empowering it is to enable others - to start their own creative projects and tell their own stories.  That’s why we’ve decided to share our customers’ stories* to highlight their aspirations and challenges and share that wonderful sense of accomplishment you get from learning something new.  At Stitch & Story we want to share our love of crafting – encouraging others to tell their own stories and create remarkable memories.

Kristina Bastone-Baker, from North Carolina, USA, was introduced to Stitch & Story in December 2016.  Like many Stitch & Story customers Kristina was a complete beginner but quickly got the knitting bug and now attends a weekly knitting group.**

I've always wanted to learn how to knit.  My 14 (then 13 year old) stepson got me Stitch & Story's Luca Pom Hat knitting kit in gray for Christmas.  I followed the instructions and used some YouTube videos.  Even though I started over twice, I ended up knitting the hat.  That was my first knitting project ever.  I loved it.

After that, I was hooked.  I still knew very little about knitting, but I knew I could follow the Stitch & Story patterns that came in their kits, so I ordered two more.  I ordered the Dougie Dungarees so my son could wear them for Easter.  We ended up doing a photo shoot with Lundie's Photography and it turned out really well.

I have knitted several projects since then, and have joined a knitting group that meets once a week.  It's been wonderful.  Knitting found me during a time of high transition in my life and in a lot of ways it saved me.

Stitch & Story now has a dedicated US website for all our customers across the pond. Check it out at www.us-stitchandstory.com.
