What is the Soothing Stitch Circle ?

Soothing Stitch Circle is a inspiring online membership programme for those who seek to develop confidence in their creative voice, learn and refine textile skills and nourish their wellbeing through creativity.


Did you know that twenty minutes of a creative actity like doodling can profoundly impact our mental and physical state for the better? Creativity is more than just an outlet; it's a vital tool for navigating whatever life throws at us, for finding equanimity and calm and for creating a space where we can be who we truly are.


Unlock Your Creative Potential : You already are CREATIVE. I believe it is the essence of being human. What this membership gives you the space and time for chiselling your innate voice, learning new skills, gentle handholding and embracing play as a key to transforming your work. This program will empower you to find and trust your unique creative voice, elevating your textile work into authentic self-expression.


Well-Being Through Stitching : Cultivate a consistent stitch practice not just as an art form, but as a therapeutic practice that calms the mind and nourishes the soul.


You are not doing this alone : Whether you are fed up of doing it alone or you are ready to commit to your creative practice, doing it with others gets your there quicker and is so much more fun. Join our friendly bunch where everyone is on this creative adventure, just like you. We are a group that believes in active sharing, learning, and growing together. There is no criticism or cliques here – just a group of folks from all corners of the world at all levels of experience rooting for each other every step of the way.


How does it work : The program includes tutorials, group coaching, demonstrations and a clear 4 stage pathway to get you from a dabbler to a master.


Since founding the Soothing Stitch Circle in the summer of 2021, I have helped hundreds of creative explorers just like you. If you feel this is the right place for you, I look forward to welcoming you in!

Hi there! I'm Ekta Kaul



I am a full-time artist and I live in leafy West London, England. I create narrative maps that explore place, history and belonging, working with fiber and paint. 


Coming from a family of academics in India, where science and scholarship was the norm, I broke the mould when I decided to follow a career in the creative arts. My quest took me thousands of miles away from my home in India and from everything I was familiar with, all the way to the UK. Slowly, over the next 15 years, I built a thriving art career. Today,  my works are exhibited and collected internationally. Many are held in promiment public and private collections across the UK including the Museum of London, Crafts Council London, Liberty of London, the Gunnersbury Museum, Tatter Blue Library (USA). I've had to honour of being invited to speak at the British Parliament, teach at institutions such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, Kettle's Yard, Cambridge as well as internationally. I've received awards from the Crafts Council and was the winner of 2021 Cockpit Arts Textile Prize. My works have been featured in Financial Times, BBC Radio 4, Vogue, Selvedge and Embroidery Magazine among others. 


What my journey has shown me is that EVERYTHING is possible. We only need to commit to chasing our dreams. 


So why learn from me? Well, I’ve been in your shoes.  I know what it feels like to step out of the comfort zone and paint your own path. After spending years learning everything from scratch, mostly on my own, I know that finding the right information curated by an expert can save years (yes years!) Plus having a supportive community of like minded people around us can make all the difference in our creative journey feeling like a joyful ride, instead of a slow, lonely slog. 


I've built the membership on these two principles- information and a fantastic supportive community.

I know this membership works. We have helped hundreds of people, just like you. I'd love to help you too.

If you are ready to invest in yourself and show up for your creativity, we'd love to welcome you the next time we open doors.

"First, the affirmation from Ekta and our group is incredible! Second, based on this affirmation, I feel more able and willing to take creative risks in my work. Third, Ekta is giving me the tools to build my knowledge and confidence as an artist. The clarity of instruction and general excellent flow of our weekly gatherings has been great."

"One of the loveliest parts of my life right now is participating in Ekta Kaul's Soothing Stitch Circle. The Circle supports members who are exploring their creativity through stitches. Ekta, who is the loveliest of humans, shares information about design and color--it's like a mini art school class every time. She also teaches new embroidery stitches. It's low pressure, high result. I highly recommend this lovely journey!"

“I am so pleased to have joined our Stitch Circle. It is just what I need to keep myself motivated. I'm not great at making time for myself to explore creative skills but now that I am sewing regularly I find it quite addictive. I've never explored stitches in this way and its such fun!”

"Being part of the Stitch Circle has been rewarding in so many ways - new ideas, new friends and space to be creative. I'm usually woking on projects to get them finished (always patterns and kits) but with Ekta's guidance and encouragement, taking time to explore and even struggle with ideas and how to bring them to life has been incredibly impactful. Just finished my first ever stitched project that I created - feels amazing!"

“I love Ekta's friendliness and approachability, the amount of thought and organization she puts into every session, the mix of stitches clearly explained, and being part of a supportive group”
