If you love needlework and embroidery, join Seaside Stitchers. Share your interests and develop your skills with the help of like minded people.
Seaside Stitchers is an independent group of people who are interested in embroidery and the related textile arts.
They meet twice a month on the second and last Mondays, at 1st Bispham Scout Hut, Devonshire Rd, Blackpool FY2 0JT
Meetings start at 7.15pm and last for about two hours. Tea/Coffee and biscuits are provided.
Usually one of the meetings will be a talk or demonstration while the other is an opportunity to catch up with our stitching and each other!
We are a friendly group who welcome anyone who is interested in embroidery and textiles whatever their level of expertise.
You can attend two of our meetings (admission charge £3.00 for work-nights and £5 for speakers) before you need to decide whether you want to join us.
