Stitch in Time

A stitching group in Tameside for meeting up, chatting and sewing

 "I was very surprised that in the army, sewing was done by men"
"Some people share stories of the craft skills which I enjoy and we can see different crafts in the room where our group meets"
"I have been motivated into picking up a needle again and have learned more types of stitching than I already knew and have found the group very friendly and sociable"
