Social stitching

A new craft club starting at Erewash Museum this December will be perfect for those seeking a cosy creative community space.

Residents are invited to the Ilkeston-based museum for sociable stitching sessions where visitors are encouraged to bring any of their stitching crafts including knitting, crochet and cross stitch. People of any skill level are welcome, from novice to expert.

The session will take place every month starting on Saturday 3 December 2022, then continuing in the New Year with Saturday 14 January, Saturday 4 February and Saturday 4 March 2023. The sessions will run from 11am until 3pm, with crafters able to come and go throughout the sessions.

To celebrate the first session, mince pies will be available on Saturday 3 December and all crafters will receive a free hot drink from the volunteer-led tea room.

Leader of Erewash Borough Council, Councillor Carol Hart, said:

“The new social stitching sessions at Erewash Museum are a perfect opportunity for residents to get together and be creative in a safe comfortable space. The sessions may also inspire people to try new crafts or return to a hobby they haven’t enjoyed in a while. I’m sure many beautiful items will be sewn in the coming months at the museum!”

Erewash Museum is located a short walk from Ilkeston’s Market Place. Admission is free for both the house and gardens. For more information visit the Facebook page facebook.com/erewashmuseum, call 0115 907 1141, or email museum@erewash.gov.uk.
