Today we met with Jan, a member of Stitch ‘n’ Time, a women’s textile group that meets at Whale Arts every Tuesday 1.00pm -3.00pm. The group started in 2009 when a number of women got together to create a banner celebrating the anniversary of the suffragettes and Gude Cause for International Women’s Day.
Jan has been a regular attender of the group for the past two years. The group is so popular that it currently has a waiting list for new members.
It’s such a lovely and welcoming group. We all have such fun together and we often craft for community events in Wester Hailes. We recently put together items for the Stitching through Time exhibition. In the past we have knitted and sewn items for Dads Rock, local nurseries, and Wester Hailes Healthy Living Centre. It’s great to give back to the community.
Here is the link to the Stitch ‘n’ Time Blog where there is lots of information on the group.
