This paper explores through my own practicebased enquiry the connection between stories and stitching. It seeks to find meaningfulness and purpose in the contemporary narratives, as modern myth making and how they are a reflection of everyday encounters. It asks if there are mnemonic properties to stitching and stories that can offer ways to understand and transform actual experience and to represent the past by making it physical and continuous.
