About this event

Stitch Up

A monthly lunchtime meet up for anyone who has some sewing on the go and would like to sit and stitch in a social environment. We encourage you to bring your own sewing to the group and share what you are working on. Quilting, embroidery, mending, darning, appliqué we love them all.

Drop in from 11-1pm, stay as long as you are able.

11-1pm - May 17th, June 21st, July 19th

Each month we will have a prompt to stitch and some materials and tools will be available to use and borrow for those who are new to stitch.

This lunchtime group is a chance to take a break from work or break up your day and meet new people of all ages and spend some time hand sewing, which has been proven to benefit both mental and physical well being.

This is an adult group and we welcome all ages. We love babies but due to having needles and pins in easy reach this group is not appropriate for children who are mobile.

Free biscuits are included, bring a hot drink with you and your lunch if you like.

This group is funded by Reading Borough Council and we will have a short well-being survey to complete after every session.

Our workshops and events are subsidised and in most cases we are able to offer our workshops for a nominal fee. If you are able we have an option to donate. All donations help us to continue our work to make space for art for everyone every day.

Inclusivity, safety, respect, confidentiality and consent are fundamental principles at Jelly workshops and events.
