A Stitch of Trouble

About

We are Stitch and Trouble, a pair of rope suspension switches in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area! The story starts when Stitch and Trouble met in college over ten years ago and we've been friends ever since! We've been practicing rope work for over 7 years, performing for 5, and have shown in multiple venues all over the Twin Cities. In 2014 we began teaching rope-tying workshops through the Smitten Kitten with the mission of spreading safe, sane and consensual ropework from the ground up!

 

 

Who we are

There's Stitch, there's Trouble, and there's a few others too.

 

Stitch

Co-Owner/Lead-Instructor/Performer
 

Stitch is a switch who is passionate about performing and loves creating comfortable suspensions for people.   She's also a photographer and loves to go rope bombing (rope in public).

Trouble

Co-Owner/Lead-Instructor/Performer
 

Trouble is a bottom who started self tying and switching because they got bored waiting for other people to tie them up. They love being in and creating physical demanding ties, especially when they can be worked into ridiculous performance plans. Their teaching philosophy revolves around flow and technique to help students advance into more complicated ties. 

Sage

Rope Foundations Instructor/Junior Rigger
 

Sage teaches the newbie class at Smitten Kitten Rope Practice!  Stitch met her at a different class when Sage was just learning and decided to take her home for keeps.

Puppy

Sub Rigger
 

Puppy helps like the dog helps! He'll fetch and help the best he can. He's been gaining knowledge via osmosis for four years before being offically adopted by Stitch and Trouble about two years ago.
