Socktober Stitch Up

Dragonhill Studop

What?

A Stitch Up is a celebration of knitting and crochet. We will have a pop-up mini marketplace featuring some super talented stall holders.

There will be a social area for those who want to work on a current project or start a new one as well as those who just want to chat and compare purchases.

There will be a plentiful supply of tea and coffee plus the all important cake.

Gilly Makes

When?

Saturday October 21st 10:30-4:30.

Where?

In store at Stitch Solihull. If you’re not sure where we are, check out the Find Us page.

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible, the ramp is round to the right from the main door.

Admission is free.

Sherwood Yarns

Who?

Our fabulous stall holders for this event are:

  • Emma from Yarnistry will be bringing a selection of her laser cut accessories including stitch markers, sock blockers and jewellery plus some brand new project bags.
  • Gilly from Gilly Makes has been stitching away to create some gorgeous handmade project bags and notion pouches in a lovely selection of fabrics.
  • Rachael from Sherwood Yarn is an indie dyer who specialises in stunning solid colour yarns on luxurious bases. Keep an eye out for the mustards which I adore.
  • Sharon and Andrew from Dragonhill Studio are relative newcomers to the indie dyer market but have a great eye for colour and produce some stunning yarns including self striping sock yarns.

The shop will also be open selling our normal wide range of yarns, fabrics, needles and accessories. I recommed checking oun new arrivals from The Fibre Co. if you want to see something really special.

Yarnistry

Why?

Well, why not? Knitting and crochet are wonderful and should be celebrated! Plus it’s my birthday this weekend and I thought I would throw my own perfect party with yarn, cake and friends. What more could you want from a Saturday in mid-October?
