Stitch London – Casting Off

Stitch London was a radioactive woolly Godzilla of a craft group – stitching, knitting and crafting all over London from 2005-2013. It was rather lovely.

yarnzillaThe group now exists in spirit and social media only. It was the beginning of many many friendships, much money raised for great causes, a whole load of weirdness and loads of great memories.

Lauren ‘Deadly Knitshade’ O’Farrell founded and ran Stitch London (with some help from amazing volunteers both Stitchette organisers and Stitch Sage teachers) as a voluntary thing over the course of 8 wondrous woolly years.

What began with three people with a grand idea became the biggest knitting group in the UK with over 12 500 members in 52 countries worldwide.

Thanks for taking part if you did. If you missed out, we encourage you to take your craft and go share it with like-minded people.

Stitchers are everywhere. Share the handmade love and help the world submit to the knit!
