Welcome to Forage!

Share the treasures we love to use... and the places we love to forage...

We're moving this week into our lovely new studio/office/shop/classroom/packing space/storage area! We ask for your patience with the postage this week while we unpack all of the treasures!  It will be business as usual but just a little slower, so please bear with us!
It's very very exciting though!...  we'll let you know when we're in and taking bookings!

NEW! Cushion Kits

A new addition to the Forage Carrington Series of kits, this contains everything you'll need to make one of our SlowStitched cushions. Included is a ready-made, zippered, European linen cushion cover, so you'll only be doing the fun parts: Stitching, embroidering and enjoying!

Our Inspiration

Slow stitching centres around the “make do and mend” and “waste not, want not” ethos of yesteryear. It is a nod to the generations that came before ours in which reusing and recycling were necessary and admirable. This is not a complicated process which relies on numerous fancy, perfectly executed stitches and fastidious neatness. Rather, we embrace the timeworn nature of our materials, and the individuality of our stitching methods. Simplicity is key. We are passionate fabric lovers, and we have a stash of “just because” pieces we’ve found along the way to prove it. We love to hunt at flea markets, charity stores and church fetes for the cloth treasures and embellishments we will repurpose. Oh, so many possiblities!
