School of Stitched Textiles - Our Story

The School of Stitched Textiles is the UK’s largest distance learning centre for textiles-based courses. At SST, we work diligently to ensure that each and every one of our students have access to great course materials and industry leading tutors – who are textile artists in the their own right – to support and encourage them through their course. 

We do this dependably, promptly and consistently so you can rely on us…

At the School of Stitched Textiles, we offer a diverse mix of textile education, with online textile courses certificated either by ourselves or accredited by the City & Guilds of London. We compile our own course materials to ensure an original, interesting and insightful approach for students in every corner of the globe, including video tutorials and accompanying galleries in our course materials.

Everything at SST is easy to access and presented in a clean, straightforward format. We don’t overcomplicate, so our students know exactly what they need to do. We use appropriate technology, not just for the sake of it, but only if it is simple to use and if it makes life easier.

You can view a full breakdown of our courses below, including our Accredited Courses and Master Practitioner Courses. If you’re a total beginner and unsure of where to start, we also offer online craft courses to unlock your potential.
