Stitching Meet Up
Posted August 7th, 2011 - 4:22 pm by from Berlin, Germany (Permalink)
The Stitching, Bitching, Knitting, Crocheting and Sewing Group will meet this Wednesday at 7 PM (19.00) at Jaqi's place in Kreuzberg.

The exact address with directions will be sent to those who sign up as a private message.

Simple finger food, snacks (from your culture?) or drinks would be much appreciated (that way we won't be knitting with empty stomachs).

In addition to knitting and crocheting, we will be able to try our hands at sewing on a machine if someone is willing to bring one. So bring any pieces of fabric or old clothes you'd like to alter. Also, sewing patterns could be helpful. Fabric can be found at most secondhand shops, department stores like Karstadt or Domäne, and best of all outdoor markets such as the Maybach Turkish Market (Tues+Fri) or the Crellstr. market behind the Yorckstr S-bahn (Wed+Sat).
Yarn in all colours for sewing (and the machine) you can get for example at Connys Container or other 1 € shops. One is on Schönhauser Allee, going north from the station, corner Rodenbergstraße.
If you are able to bring a machine, please say so when you sign up for the event!

A few people can help teach - so whether you're a knitting virgin or sewing expert, feel free to come ;)

We're also open to any related skills or projects - all ideas are welcome!

Bring:

• Yarn (thicker yarn is easier to learn with)
• Knitting or crochet needles
• Fabric
• Perhaps something tasty to eat/drink.
• An idea of something to make
