Stitch, officially opened its doors in the leafy suburb of Willoughby on the lower north shore of Sydney in June 2017.
Stitch is an embroidery shop with a focus on a great selection of quality stock from all over the globe delivered with a modern and contemporary feel. Our store is packed with beautiful items and you can browse while searching for your next project, or book in for a class or chat.
Although new in name and location, the origins of Stitch have a long history.
Known previously as Mosman Needlecraft, the original business was established back in 1977 by a group of friends and has been owned by several people along its 40-year journey. Tessa Chaplin, the owner and creator of Stitch, and a passionate embroiderer, eventually purchased the business after working in it for 2 years.
Born in London, Tessa was surrounded by family who spent time teaching her how to embroider as well as dress making, knitting & crochet. You will always find Tessa with something in her hands and she feels a bit anxious if too much time passes without putting in a stitch or two.
"With Stitch, I wanted to chose a name that was modern and accessible but clearly explained what we are all about. We Stitch, we go to Stitch, we learn a Stitch, we master a Stitch, we drop a Stitch, we Stitch & Chat, sometimes we chat more than we stitch and I have made many lovely friends through a Stitch and would have it no other way”
