Welcome to 


A community of textile upcycling entrepreneurs who share a passion for addressing global textile waste with creative reuse.

What can I expect when I join?

Well, it is kinda like social media - but not really cause there is no advertising and no algorithm…  oh, and no trolls.  

There is a feed reminiscent of facebook where you can create and comment on posts, articles and polls.  You can share images and videos, links to your shop drops and interesting textile upcycling related content you find in your cyberspace travels.

You can sign up for workshops, masterminds, and Thrive Squads if you want to expand past the Stitcherhood basic membership.

Tell me if this sounds like you:

You are a creative textile upcycling entrepreneur working really hard to make your business pay off and just need to know that it is possible to hit the income, impact and lifestyle goals you dream about.

You are a textile-centric creative professional sick of being part of the industry feeding our global textile waste crisis and are ready to turn this rig around to be part of our environmental solution by committing to upcycling.

You are so jazzed by the idea of environmentally-focused, creative self-employment that you can taste it, but you need a little guidance and support to build your confidence and momentum.

You are a creative textile upcycler super-stoked to find a posse of like-minded makers who share your environmental passion and creative spirit. You love to share your experience and knowledge and you are excited to find inspiration from a community that resonates.

For less than a cup of coffee with friends,  easily managed memberships are set up as recurring $17/month or $170/year billing.  PLUS we make it easy to change your membership whenever you need.


Hi, I'm Crispina ffrench.
I'm in the business of helping textile upcyclers become successful entrepreneurs.

I'm a recycled textile activist, industry professional, and entrepreneur who has dedicated my life to using sustainable materials and recycling textiles. I've been doing this work for more than 35 years...long before anyone even uttered the words, "up-cycling" or "zero-waste."

My ultimate goal hosting Stitcherhood is to create a supportive community of textile upcycling entrepreneurs dedicated to reducing global textile waste and teaching by example. I've worked with some of the biggest names in textiles: Patagonia, Eileen Fisher, and Timberland, and share everything I know with recycled textile artists so they can become successful entrepreneurs. And save the world at the same time.


    • Surrounded by creative textile upcycling entrepreneurs from across the world with individual skill sets, experience and expertise
    • An integral part of a global shift toward careful consumption
    • Immersed in creative empowerment building momentum in consumption awareness
    • A celebrated part of our environmental solution


    Addressing our global textile waste crisis with creative ingenuity.

    Stitcherhood is good for you

    • Scientists have proven that tapping into creativity builds confidence and self-esteem while reducing stress and anxiety. 
    • Textile Upcycling is accessible and does not require up front investment
    • Human connection and having fun are intrinsic to mental well-being.
