The Stitch Community Group West Norwood Logo

Tara who hosts the Stitch, has got the domain name, the blog has been started, links have started being added and there are posts but those have yet to be published.

This is a community group and it’s members are helping Tara set up the website, mailing lists and even setting up the sewing machines, materials and ideas so it really is a community.

RunnyCustard: The Open Works 'The Stitch' Oct 2014 &emdash; Hats at The Stitch
A ‘Stitchee’ who made this hat from an old jumper

I will update when it officially launches but feel free to visit the Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram

You can see more photos taken at the Stitch on their website (I have put some on there already as I’ve been the one taking them) or you can click the images on this page and you can see the whole gallery of images.


 Themes…

Each week ‘themes’ are set but people can just pop in with their own project to do instead or maybe learn crochet or knitting, sew a skirt, fix a hole in a favourite shirt etc – some upcycling projects have been done already and the plan is to do more – they are open to suggestions so leave a comment on their website.

Men are also welcome so ideas for projects for guys would be great – there is a pinterest board as well.
