Daily Thread - Open Textile Workshop - no previous experience required

First Saturday of the month, 2-4pm.  Daily Thread Yarnwork.  Bring along your yarn project - spinning, knitting, crochet, tatting, etc. Or just come along if you would like to learn from others.  Share ideas, skills and inspiration.  Natter.  Eat cake.  £3 per session.

Daily Thread is gathering momentum.  Ok, so it's not quite daily yet as our name suggests, but that's what we are aiming for, and we are equipped with traditional looms, a spinning wheel, sewing machine, fabric, books, equipment, and a friendly space (with sofas, and often cake) where you can meet other makers.

For experienced textilers, beginners and everyone in between.

Would you like to craft and create alongside others?

Do you hoard textile scraps for a project you might do one day?  Would you prefer to share these with others to ensure they get used?  Or maybe you hate to throw things away but don’t have the space to store them?

Maybe you would like to join us for a good natter while you knit, embroider, design or crochet with like-minded people.

Would you like to learn how to weave on a loom?

Do you attend a textiles class, and would like to carry on meeting after it has finished?

Maybe you have a backlog of mending or alterations that you never get around to doing, either because you are busy, or because you don’t feel confident about doing them.

Come and share ideas with others, get or give advice and help, create communal art pieces.

We have a large quantity of fabrics and yarn - please do add to these if you have fabric or yarn (or any other textiles, patterns, instruction or ideas books or equipment) you no longer need.  We want to inspire people to reuse and create.  We have a collection point for these items at The Old Print Works and at Moseley Farmers’ Market every month.
