Stitch in Time (Connecting Craigmillar)

Availability : North East

Who is this for?

  • Residents of Craigmillar, Niddrie, Bingham, Magdalenere

Description

Learn stitching, sewing and embroidery skills, meet others, work on craft projects together, take part in the Craigmillar Tapestry, and help create stitched items for community events, exhibitions and stalls. Peer-led and run by community members sharing skills and ideas, and organised democratically by a monthly steering group of volunteers and group members.

Connecting Craigmillar works to enable opportunities for local people to meet, have fun, learn together, form new friendships and develop lasting positive change together.

It is for local residents of all ages and backgrounds in Craigmillar and Niddrie to develop projects, groups, events, and activities around things they are interested in, and to focus on things they want to learn about and change. The aim and ethos of the project is about supporting mutual aid, informal learning, and community-led solutions.

If you live in the area or know someone that does, you can get in touch with Connecting Craigmillar who can support you to develop an idea, passion, or interest, or act on an issue you care about.
