Stitch Clubs 2018 to 2019


Stitch Clubs

The Stitchclubs are now a separate entity from Bailgate Embroiderers' Guild. These are run by a small committee (for £10 a year and £5 fee for each Saturday attended); they are open to all. In the past we have had an introduction to braiding, spiral beading, hand patchwork, felting, Christmas Decorations, collage and Jacobean stitching and we hope to carry on, but as an independent unit.

They will take place on the third Saturday in the month (not Sept, Dec or Aug). These run from 10 am - 3 pm. Held in Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Skellingthorpe Rd, opposite the petrol station on the Birchwood Avenue junction.
