Written by Vicky on February 6, 2011 – 3:28 pm -

We may try out other venues in the area but will post something up here on the blog so please do check back before coming along.

All crafters are welcome to bring along their own projects but do bear in mind that some things, like sewing machines, won’t be practical for the pub. Hand sewing, knitting, crochet and other things that don’t need lots of space or equipment are all ideal!

What we do

Written by Claire on February 4, 2010 – 12:17 am -

It’s been a long time since we updated this blog – in fact several people have commented that it’s looking a bit out of date now, so I thought that I would take my (shiny new) camera along to show you what we get up to week by week.  Tonight was a bit of a quiet evening with just 7 of us there, but was a very pleasant evening having chats, laughs and cakes.

From the top we have Jacqueline, a Textile Workshop regular knitting a scarf from some lovely pink Rowan wool.

Then we have Emmeline, practicing her knitting skills and gaining confidence all the time!

Vicky is making a lovely granny blanket like the one she made for a gift.

Stefka is crocheting a desk zombie for her new desk at work (and to guard the paperclips…)

Sue is knitting a scarf from a lace pattern

And just to show it’s not just a knitting/ crochet group I am embroidering some gingham with a folk pattern for a bag.

We still meet every week, and we’re a friendly bunch – why don’t you come and join us?  As we’re not a class we just bring along whatever projects we are working on (and can carry!) and chill out for a couple of hours.  And eat cake/ biscuits.  How much better does it get?

Still Going Strong!

Written by Vicky on May 1, 2009 – 2:54 pm -

Things have been a little quiet on the Stitched Up blog recently so I thought I’d pop by to say we’re still here and still going strong.

Stitched Up GroupOur craft group still takes place every Wednesday evening and recently we’ve had a few lovely new ladies join us. There’s still room for more crafty guys and gals so do come along.

As always we welcome crafters of all interests. Lately our stitchy folk have been bringing a range of crafts including embroidery, crochet, hand sewing, spinning, lace making, knitting, beading and dress making and it has been great for beginners like me to see our more experienced crafters at work. I’ve even learned a thing or two!

If you’d like to know more about Stitched Up then please take a look at our ‘about’ page or get in touch.

Beginners blog

Written by Vicky on January 3, 2009 – 8:58 pm -

I’ve been stuck in the house feeling lousy with the flu all Christmas but the one positive thing to come out of it is that it finally gave me the time to get a long awaited project off the ground.

Image of is my own little blog which will be a kind of journal tracking my progress in learning and applying crafts and dressmaking skills. As the Stitched Up ladies know I’ve been going on and on about wanting to learn how to make clothes and accessories for ages and now with lots of inspiration and brilliant people around me there’s no better time to go for it.

If you get a chance do pop by and say hello at
