Teaching for Stitches is always a pleasure, whether live or virtual. The Stitches team handles everything possible in advance to ensure that teachers can focus on teaching. When there are rare needs that happen during a show, they are available and respond quickly. Stitches’ commitment to equality and diversity creates a unique community and attracts great students. As a teacher, I couldn’t ask for a better environment.
