About Stitch London
Stitch London are a London-based stitching group taking over the world one new stitcher at a time like a radioactive Godzilla with yarn and a vengeance.
We’re a feisty but ultra-friendly group of all ages and from all walks of life, who basically get together all over London make fabulous things from sticks and string, help each other out of sticky stitching situations, and escape from the rat race and humdrum.
The group is run by Lauren “Deadly Knitshade” O’Farrell and a whole host of volunteer Stitch Sages. Anyone can become a Stitch Sage and help wrangle the woolly Godzilla in return for some fabulous stitching opportunities.
We have crafters from 16 years old to 600. We never turn a crafter or would-be knitter away. Any one is welcome: male, female, single, hitched, sweet, bitter, straight, fruity, smooth, fluffy, mild-mannered superhero, brazen supervillian, wallflower, party animal, singing detective or small dog – the more the merrier.
Our meetings happen all over central London once a week in cafes, pubs or parks. There is no set day, but we always meet from 6 PM on weekdays. We are always close to a station too, so we’re easy to get to and find.
Fortnightly email newsletters let you know when and where we are, two weeks in advance, as well as telling you what else the group is up to and digging up internet knitting gold from around the globe.
It’s all completely free.
We are quite a mixed bunch. Beginners, masters and a fair few in between. All you do is turn up at a meeting, sit down and knit (or crochet or embroider or anything crafty).
No other requirements at all. There is nothing to pay and no limits to who can join.
We also teach beginners for FREE if they turn up with some needles and yarn.
In fact we will teach anyone any knitting skill they want to know for nothing, and if we don’t know how then we’ll find out.
Join us and submit to the knit!
