"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!”

Jackie JenningsJackie Jennings

"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!"

Laurel ThomsonLaurel Thomson

“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”
