Slow Stitching Kits


The Bee Garden

Slow stitching, like other ‘slow’ movements, helps you to relax and concentrate on the here-and-now, releasing your mind into a creative freedom to produce your own unique and beautiful piece of textile art.


Perfection is not the goal. It doesn’t matter if the fabric is frayed

or you see the stitches.

I provide the materials and a few guidelines – the rest is up to you,

and you can make it as detailed or as simple as you wish.

The only requirement is that you enjoy doing it!


There are a number of Slow Stitching Kits from The Bee Garden to choose from. They span the seasons when you can see bees working their magic in the garden, so naturally each of them illustrates a bee-friendly flower and includes a bee, of course.

The depictions aren’t meant to be botanically accurate – they are more of an impression, or a loose portrayal of the flower, so that you can let your imagination have free reign. ​

Please click on 'Store' on the menu bar to view the Kits that are currently available.
