Stratford In Stitches

Stratford In Stitches

Stratford In Stitches is a drop in group for adults 16+ who meet every Thursday from 10:30am until 12:30pm and work towards community projects using different techniques, such as knitting, crotcheting and sewing.

In 2018, Stratford In Stitches decorated a wedding dress with quotes, pictures and symbols inspired by the stories of local Land Girls to support Escape’s 2018 exhibition, Warwickshire Land Girls: The Food of Love. The dress was celebrated at Heritage Open Days in 2018, where Escape hosted a mock wedding with a young volunteer wearing the dress and real Warwickshire Land Girls as the bridesmaids. Watch the video of this very special event here.  They have been busy making baby bonnets and booties for Warwick Hospital Premature Baby Unit.

Stratford In Stitches are also keen yarnbombers, contributing to GAGA’s tree yarnbombing on the Bancroft Gardens and more recently, yarnbombing the Old Slaughterhouse. Donations of wool are always appreciated. If you are interested in getting involved we would love to hear form you, contact: info@escapearts.org.uk
