Remember back in 2010 when 255 of you made Stitched Selves and we showed them off at the Science Museum for one night only?
Since then they’ve been busy. They made an appearance at our Stitched Science event last summer and now they’re going to be on the big screen! Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
The lovely folks at the Craft Club (the Craft Council’s initiative to get more people passing on the love of craft) got in touch to ask if we had any inspiring handmade bits to star in their brand new crafty film. Of course we did! Your Stitched Selves were possibly the most inspiring project we have ever done.
So we piled all 255 of you into a taxi and off we went to Craft Council Towers. Most of you were well behaved. Most of you…
The Stitched Selves spent the afternoon with the folks at Crush Creative making movie magic. Here are a few sneak peeks…
A whole lotta Stitched Selves wait nervously for their moment
Ready for your close up?
Pile of posing purly people
So where can you see this fibre-filled film? Well you’re lucky enough to be invited to the premiere at Stratford East Picturehouse, East London.
The FREE event takes place on Saturday 25th Feb 2012 between 12.00-13.00. You can book free tickets here.
There’ll also be a whole load of knitting going on, including free finger-knitting lessons and starter knitting kits.
All ages are invited so join the Cinema Knit-along with Craft Club and come and see if your Stitched Self made it onto the silver screen!
If you can’t make it along the film will be online very soon! We’ll post up a link as soon as it is.
There are also more pictures over on our Facebook page.
(We can’t guarantee all the Stitched Selves will be featured in the film. After all there are 255 of you! But if yours didn’t make the final cut there’ll be more Stitched Self mayhem in future. So keep an eye on Stitch London to see what they get up to.)
Lights! Camera! Knitting!
See you there, Stitch Londoners.

Charge up your public knitting needles again, S&B Londoners. Trafalgar Square is calling once more…

It will be a big piece of knitting that will separate off into strips as people want to get involved.
