For a while now I have been looking for a craft/textile group to meet and stitch with, more for the chat than anything else as this is what I miss most from doing the C&G course. We would bounce ideas around and generally put the world to rights, all be it in a textily sort of way. A few weeks ago I found a group called Stitched up meeting in Nottingham on a Wednesday night and took myself along to a meeting. This proved to be a small group of girls meeting to stitch or work on whatever project was most portable. For myself, it is the perfect place to hand stitch ATCs or postcards in in pleasant company and I may even use it as an excuse to take out my lace pillow which hasn't seen the light of day for a few years.
My thanks to Claire, Vicky, Allison and Pamela for making me so welcome.
NB.they even have a blog which may be of interest to stitchers in the Nottingham area.
