Team Yarningham visit NYE

On Saturday, Team Yarningham (Sara, Helen, V, and Lil) took a day trip to the inaugural Nottingham Yarn Expo.  NYE is a large show (over 100 stands!) held at Nottingham Conference Centre.

We had a glorious day out visiting the show, including a slap up lunch of delicious pizza at Oscar and Rosie’s and spotting a cafe/bar called Yarn (that didn’t have any yarn in it).  We also got to chat to some of the previous Yarningham exhibitors and do a bit of scouting for next year’s show.

We didn’t forget to shop either.  Here are some pics of Team Yarningham’s hauls.  Can you guess which haul belongs to whom?

November Hootenanny

Last night was our November Hootenanny.  A big thank you to all the stitchers who came along to get their stitch on.

Here are a few pictures from last night including a beautiful Sanquhar jumper that I am plotting to steal and a visit from BCU Crafty Bitches group.  It was great to meet you all.

October Hootenanny

Last night saw the return of our monthly hootenannies.   It was great to meet some new stitchers and to see some old faces.   There was stitching aplenty, lots of tea drunk and a discussion about the new Blade Runner film.

Here’s a couple of pics from last night, including one of me proving that the seemingly small section of ribbing I was knitting will in fact go around my large head.

Stitches and Hos are thrilled to have been invited to take part in this year’s Made in Kings Heath Open Studios Trail.

The open studios take place on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November 2017.  The trail comprises 13 artists/makers showcasing their work over 3 venues.

Made in Kings Heath aims to bring together artists living and working in the Kings Heath area of Birmingham to share, exhibit and promote their work.  Founded by ceramicist Melanie Keevil and textile artist Emma Jackson, the first Made in Kings Heath event took place in the Autumn of 2014.

For this year’s event Stitches and Hos will be exhibiting our hand knitted homewares and gifts at the studio of Ruth Green Design, one of the new venues added this year.  Also exhibiting at Ruth’s studio are Ruth Green (prints), Sue Bibby (embroidery), Clare Wainwright (stained glass) and Giles Hughes (mixed media & painting).

You can find a trail map and more information on the Made in Kings Heath website.
