I’d like to set up an informal meeting place/gathering in Manchester city centre where sewers/crafters/makers and embroiderers can get together and work on their projects. Although there are existing stitch ‘n’ bitch and knitting groups, there appears to be nothing central for embroiderers that is free and accessible.
The group would be for people to share ideas, news and their interests with one another, not necessarily to teach, but of course people will bounce ideas off each other! If the group decides, we can attend exhibitions related to embroidery and textiles collectively on certain occasions. As time goes by we shall see how the group develops and what it’s members request.
It could be a Saturday evening, once a month at a cafe or bar in the city. There would be no charge to attend and suggestions from it’s contributors would be very welcome.
Interested? Then please start a discussion with any ideas you might have and post them in the group! Such as possible venues… I look forward to chatting and getting sewing with you!
And please invite/share the group with anyone you think might be interested, the more people who know about this the stronger it will be.
Join a new Manchester Embroidery Group.
