Tell us about a group »
The Arts & Crafts guild of Lancashire - The Guild is an association of artists, designers and makers who are selected for the quality and originality of their work.
Unicorn Tree Books & Crafts (Coffee Club) - Just starting up and primarily aimed at papercrafts (stamping, scrapbooking, cardmaking, quilling, etc), the Unicorn Tree Books Craft'n'Coffee club is based in Lincoln and can be contacted via their Facebook group,
or via Twitter as @unicorntreebks. They may expand into other crafts in the future if there is demand!
Knit the City - best described in their own words: "Knit the City are part of an ongoing campaign to guerrilla knit the city of London, and beyond that the world".
Stitch and Bitch London - in their own words? "Stitch and Bitch London are London's feisty but friendly knitting group taking over the city we love one stitch at a time, like a radioactive Godzilla with sticks and string".
Surry & Hampshire Crafters - aiming to bring independant
craft businesses together and to offer help and support, this group also hope to organise their own events in the future. They aim to bring
craft fairs to the community, help inform the public about genuine UK handmade goods - and the benefits of being able to meet the makers.
The Wedding Co-op - Although not strictly a 'pure' craft association, the wedding co-op bring together a number of crafter and other suppliers under one roof, providing a wide range
of wedding related services - from tiaras, to favours, to toastmasters.
Stitch'N'Bitch Guernsey (iMake) - Meeting each month (generally on a different day) at The Gallery in Mansell Street, St Peter Port - sometimes at an bar/cafe. All are welcome to come along (including non-stitch crafts). For more info visit www.imake.gg or Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Craft Connection - From 2 Nov. 2013, every Sat 10-13.00 we hold a 16yr+ craft club at the Picture Framing Shop in Chandler's Ford. Every week, crafters can come and do what they like. Once a month, we hold demonstrations (ring making, rag rungs, card making, Project Life books, crochet). Email: email@example.com
Sew Much Fun -
'Sew Much Fun is for those of us whose imagination can not be confined in every day life, compelling us to create craft that represents a thought or a feeling that allows others to be inspired to then conceive their own.
We welcome those who may want to share thier craft expertise with us, or those who may want to learn a new craft and those who may just want to sit and chat over a hot drink and home made cake.
We hold Craft sessions every other Monday starting at 7pm till 9pm, where you can enjoy creating something for around £2-3, which includes materials and tuition. We also provide tools to complete each craft.'
We are based in Nottinghamshire. Visit http://sewmuchfuncraft.wordpress.com/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
