Daily Thread is a series of friendly textiles sessions running throughout the month for experienced textilers, beginners and everyone in between.

Daily Thread provides a creative space for people to come and share ideas with other, give or receive helpful advice or create communal art pieces. We have a wide range of equipment including traditional looms, sewing machines and a spinning wheel, as well as fabric, YARN, books and comfy sofas.
