Create North is establishing an informal get together on the 1st Friday of every month for creatives who would like to meet to talk and do textiles.
There has been a long tradition of people coming together to Stitch ‘n Bitch, the name has been used to refer to social knitting groups since the 1940’s. Typically, attendees knit, though others known as ‘Happy Hookers’ crochet and others engage in cross stitching, embroidery and other needlecraft.
These informal events are open to anyone interested in knitting, crochet, stitch, weaving, tapestry, costume design, fashion – anything textiles. The idea behind them is that by coming together we can talk about the things we are passionate about with like minded people, share skills, admire each other’s work (or ask for help if needed) and share ideas and contacts.
The second stitching event will take place at the back of the refectory café at Ushaw Historical House and Gardens on Friday 4th November between 3pm and 5pm, so come along and join to by starting your weekend with a stitch, a bitch and a cup of tea and cake
This event is free and everyone is welcome but please book your place here so we know how much space to create.
(Friday) 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
