Stitch and Butch Covid-19 virus.

They meet Mondays, 6-8 pm at at St Andrews on the Terrace in the Rainbow Room on the second floor. Cost – koha.

Stop press: meetings suspended for now - join the facebook group for updates as they organise online get togethers.

Bring along your own project – their knowledge can solve many problems, or contribute to their collective work. Or come just for some friendly company and a cup of tea (sometimes there is even cake!)
They welcome donations of wool, yarn or thread. And they can find ways to recycle clothes and kitchen excess when you de-clutter. ... check their facebook page.
