The Lion, Basford

Written by Jane on September 19, 2011 – 6:20 pm -

We’ve made the move to The Lion and have been made very welcome. Come along for a chat, a bit of craft and optional food and pub quiz.

Currently we have cross stitch, knitted bootees, shawl and jumpers and crocheted granny square blankets emerging. We even had a spinning wheel this week… come along and share whatever you are working on.

Pub Quiz stitchalong!

Written by Siobhan on June 20, 2011 – 12:08 pm -

Just a quick post to let everybody know that there will be an extra Stitched Up meeting this week at The Lion in Basford. If anyone would like to come along we will be meeting around 7pm and the more the merrier! Also Jane has found out about a quiz night at the Bell Inn on Angel Row which we thought might be a good venue for a meeting. It starts at 7.30 Wednesday 29th and costs £1.50 a ticket if we take part in the quiz. If anyone is interested it would be great of you could let Jane, Doreen or myself know so that we can organise tickets :) Hope everyones well and hope to see you all at a stitched up meeting soon!

Stitched Up Gets Laced Up

Written by Vicky on June 26, 2009 – 11:20 pm -

Well it seems a new craft wave has hit the Stitched Up group – bobbin lace. Thanks to our experienced lace maker Sue a few of us have been having a bash and picking up some lacey skills.

On Wednesday Laila was learning half stitch, whole stitch and twisted whole stitch:

This is what it looked like when it was finished. Pretty good for a first go eh?

Claire and I have also been learning lace making with Sue and we’ve written a little more about it on our respective blogs (Pinky & Boo and Victoria Louise). Sue shows us all how its done though and here is the beautiful piece she’s working on at the moment.

You can see more of Sue’s lace on her blog Travel, Fibre & Thread.

Don’t worry though, we haven’t abandoned other crafts. Stitched Up still embraces crafts of all types. Here’s a little snapshot of some of the projects our stitchy ladies were working on this week.

Margaret’s crochet times table helper. How clever is this?..

Jacqueline and Jane know how short British summers are so they’re knitting socks ready for the winter…

Stefka has made this enormous bag with the fluffy trim to be felted. She was also creating her own embroidery design which you can see on the table…

Claire was crocheting these beautifully delicate irish roses. These will be included in some of her lovely hand made items that she’ll be selling at the West Bridgford Craft Fair on 17th and 18th July.

And I’ve been embroidering on the print of these pretty folky napkins which are soon to become cushion covers.

As you can see we’re a real mixed bag at Stitched Up and so are our crafty interests and skills. If you’d like to join us then get in touch, all crafts welcome!

Just in case you wondered what we did on a Wednesday night, I took my camera down yesterday and snapped these pieces by two of our Crochet ladies. Above is Lailas wonderful textural piece that has been coming together over the last few weeks.

This fun version of noughts and crosses is by Margaret who also made a set of Russian Dolls!! ( saw them last week but no camera , will try and capture them soon) If you fancy learn how to crochet pop into the Textile Workshop for the full course list. If you just fancy bringing whatever you are working on, call in on a Wednesday night, 6-8.30. We have members that stitch, knit, bead and make lace, basically all stitch/thread crafts welcome.

Craft group tomorrow

Written by Claire on January 29, 2008 – 2:18 pm -

Hi Ladies

Hope that you are well – just to let you know the rooms are booked until the end of Feb at the ICC -there has been a bit of confusion around which room we will be in specifically, but I am sure we can work it out between us all!

Vicky and i have been speaking to the lovely ladies of the Textiles Workshop in Sherwood and they have offered the use of their shop for Weds evenings although this may be a location problem for some – let us know and we haven’t committed to anything yet – all opinions are great and it may be that we try it for a week and see how we find it – it’s up to you guys.

Now I have managed to get myself logged on I think I will start posting some of my patterns on here (when I can get my head around saving the pdf’s….)

Hope to see you tomorrow

Claire xo
