Welcome to Stitch!

Our community enterprise craft hub and class venue

Stitch! is a community craft initiative in Palmers’ Green, started in May 2019, where you can buy sewing and crafty supplies; attend friendly Stitching Circles and classes and workshops in sewing, knitting, crochet, macrame, mosaic, kids crafts and calligraphy.

Due to the coronavirus situation we have with a heavy heart had to close our shop and postpone all our classes and workshops but we are still selling our products online and taking telephone orders. We are keeping in touch with many of you though the Zoom app with virtual Stitching and Patchwork Circles, Kids Craft-A-Longs and through our social media. We also have free sewing video tutorials and are regularly engaging social media with the help of our volunteers.

Our current plan is to review the situation in four weeks time when we may have a clearer picture of the timeframe with which we expect the social restriction ban to be imposed so we can find dates to start re-running our courses and re-open properly our shop. Something for us all to look forward to!

 

* KIDS CRAFT-A-LONG! (ZOOM) – a weekly session via the Zoom app (free to download) where kids craft together and can share what creative things they’ve made. We have some fun crafting chat and get ideas for things we can all try at home. Next session’s activity-  (Tues 28th April) RICE PAINTING! 

* PATCHWORK CIRCLE SURGERY (ZOOM) every Wednesday at 11am, with Carol Balfe.
Carol talks you through any problems you may be having with a patchwork or quilting projects.
* KNIT AND NATTER (ZOOM) with Sharon Wallin is at 11am on Thursdays. On Thursday 6th April we had great fun with a free Knit-A-Long-A-Rainbow-Shawl tutorial. Please join us each week, it is completely free. All newcomers welcome. Lets stay connected and support each other.
You can log in to Zoom for free. Download at https://zoom.us/

UPDATE 24.04.20 –  MAKING LAUNDRY BAGS FOR NHS
Thank you so much to everyone who has helped make laundry bags for hospital staff at North Middlesex Hospital. The Donate team at North Middlesex Hospital are so incredibly grateful for all the 500+ fabric wash bags made so far by everyone in the community and are still looking to receive more for their staff.

If people are still interested in making you can drop the made bags at Stitch! (397 Green Lanes) on Thursdays between 12 and 1pm and we will drop them to the hospital. If you are self isolating and you are local then please email hello@stitch.org.uk and we can drive round and pick them up.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING: If you, or someone you know, is experienced on a sewing machine or can craft with just a needle and thread, we need your help and creative skills to create and donate simple uniform wash bags for our staff.

To avoid cross-contamination, a fabric wash bag will allow staff treating COVID-19 patients to safely store, transport and wash their scrubs once they get home following their shift at work. Ideally, bags should measure 15′ x 20′ and made of a fabric suitable for a 60C heat wash. Ideally neutral colours so they dont run in wash with other washing. Alternatively, if you can donate fabric towards this cause, please get in touch with our donations team by emailing northmid.donations@nhs.net.

For tips and tricks on making a bag in a short video and for more details please visit –http://www.northmid.nhs.uk/donate
