Stitch Yourself for the Science Museum

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on May 6, 2010

Stitch London are teaming up with London’s shiny Science Museum to bring you possibly the greatest knitting + science experiment the world has ever witnessed: the Stitch Yourself project.

We’re inviting you to to contribute a tiny Stitched Self and take part in scientific stitching history.

Your Stitching + Creativity = A Stitched Self

All you need to do is knit, crochet or sew a tiny version of you. Then just send it in to us.

Every Stitched Self sent in will be part of an exhibit for the London’s Science Museum‘s re-opening of their Who Am I? gallery in June 2010.

You can send in your contributions from anywhere in the world. Every one will be blogged here for the online world to see too.

We’ve spent hours in the dank shadows of the Stitch London lab conducting all manner of crafty stitching experiments to produce three ‘blank body’ patterns. These are the humble beginnings of your handmade ‘Stitched Self’.

For all the information on the project, free patterns for each Stitched Self and an address to send them to please visit the Stitch London website

The deadline for submissions is 26th June so get stitching yourself. Quick! Quick!

    I brought my daughter’s and my doll from America. I was very excited to see the exhibit yesterday, only to be told that the dolls were on display for only one night! How disappointing.

    • Sadly the Museum only had space for the Stitched Selves for one night.

      We would have loved longer but as one of London’s largest museums we were very lucky to get a whole evening.

      Sorry to disappoint. We do plan to do other exhibitions all over, so keep an eye on our newsletter. The Stitched Selves could be visiting you. You never know…

    From the looks of the photos, one of the most innovative and FUN stitching displays ever. Congrats to the team for creativity and a sense of humour in bundles!
