Mission: To teach children and adults to use their innate empathy, artistry, and power to affect healing in others, one stitch at a time.
Sewing combines artistic vision with passionate efforts to join, fasten, and repair fabric to make unique creations. When fabric is stitched together to create lovable, one-of-a-kind stuffed animals, adults and children become empowered healers and advocates of kindness in their communities. The simple act of sewing provides comfort to children of domestic violence and poverty, while inspiring a passion for artistic learning. Therefore, volunteers involved in Stitched Together learn empathy while participating in the healing process for those in need.
By hosting workshops, holding regular chapter meetings, and partnering with nonprofit organizations, Stitched Together creates a little happiness and healing every day through compassion and artistry.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Stitched Together has momentarily pivoted our focus from sewing teddy bears to helping with the shortage of face masks. While many people are working towards a more steady supply of commercially produced face masks, Stitched Together would like to help sew face masks for those who do not have access to any other face mask option. We are proud to partner with SHARE, the Johns Hopkins Center for Social Concern, & the IRONMAN Foundation to launch the Mask Making Program available to Hopkins students.
