As you may or may not know, there is a Straight Stitching group which runs in Solihull on a weekly basis. As well as being a social stitching group, we’ve also been involved in community projects such as yarn bombing and even shop window displays!
The group has been running every Thursday 5-8pm at Starbucks Solihull for almost 5 years, but after a lot of thinking I’ve decided it’s time for a bit of a change…..After consulting with our regular members, we’re going to be moving to a new, exciting venue that will be able to offer lots of support to our group.
As of Thursday 10th March 2016, Straight Stitching will meet at The Courtyard, which is a brand new workshop and exhibition space at Solihull Arts Complex. The whole complex has undergone a massive revamp, with a brand new cafe and this fabulous new space for creatives to use.
Doesn’t it look fabulous? A lovely light and airy space for like minded people to use and develop themselves. It’s situated on the ground floor so access is easy, and the entrance is between the Box Office and the Library entrance.
It will still be FREE to come to Straight Stitching, and you can bring whatever stitch related project you choose to work on, whether it be knitting, crochet, embroidery or sewing. Encore cafe has a great range of food from just a biscuit to pie and mash, and the usual range of hot and cold drinks, plus alcoholic drinks if you feel like getting experimental with your stitching. It’s all very reasonably priced too.
So whatever your age, your stitchy skills or your abilities, we’d absolutely love for you to join us at our new home on Thursday 10th March from 5pm till 8pm and every Thursday from then on. If you’re feeling really keen, we’re having a tester session on Thursday 25th February from 5pm till 8pm in the Encore Cafe at Solihull Arts Complex. Until then, we’ll be continuing at Starbucks Solihull every Thursday 5pm-8pm.
We’re really excited about this and we hope to see you there!
