5 years of hanging with the Stich and Bitch people have yilded some pretty decent garments..



oh, a wrong one



I can't seem to find the ones I wanted, I will paste later..

Anyways, we (girls and boys!, we got 3 proud male members) meet Wednesday at 7pm at Quai des Bergues 23, Geneva, for our weekly

Stitch and Bitch

at Starbucks. We speak all sorts of tongues, knit, crochet, embroider, stitch, make jewelry, spin yarn, dye it, etc. so if you need any kind of advice in crafts, needlework, or whatever, there will be somebody to help you. People reside in Geneva, Jura vadoise, France, etc. are all ages and nationalities. French is also spoken, so people get their local language practice fix.

There is also a link at the pattern site Ravelry, so you can fish out some info on us there, or pm me.

Ok, I have to..

Yes, you do. Wednesdays!



Come, it's fun. I am a free knitter, make my own patterns, but these folks finally pushed me to humbly submit to the pattern decoding art and made my brain work with it.

Come Odile, crash on my couch..Lausanne, I would love to, but been going to GE one for years and it is on the same day, too bad. At least come to the Knit In Public world day, Sun 10th, I will launch an event in a bit.

Re: Stitch & Bitch, Wednesdays in Geneva, craft geeks unite..

Sorry to hijack, but Odile the S'n'B in Lausanne is still happening every week. The only difference is that I am now only sending out newsletters for exceptional events (not every couple of months as I was initially) and that I am no longer posting events on Glocals.

We hope to see you one week

MusicChick, a couple of us have discussed coming to visit your group one week ) I'll have a chat to them, we might have to do it over the summer

Re: Stitch & Bitch, Wednesdays in Geneva, craft geeks unite..

Alrighty, today it is again..



I just got this fab key chain, made of recycled domino piece, another thing I love doing.. (thanks a million N, when you gonna drag your royal butt to sign up here????)

Don't be shy and come check us out. We have become somewhat popular in the hood, people will point us out if you ask for a bunch of Wednesday knitters.

The Sun Knit In Public Event got cancelled, but it might happen this Sunday, keep your eye on this thread. I will post even in case I gotta be out of town.

Now this is dedication; one day (when it's not so hot) I'll drag a few of my master-pieces along with me on Wednesdays.

500 posts (after more than six years), ands I've cunningly arranged for it to be art/craft related!

Re: Stitch & Bitch, Wednesdays in Geneva, craft geeks unite..

Heyyyy...It was so lovely to see Odile there, BelgianMum and Anjela. I know this is super belated but thanks for coming, I know it's far. I had a pretty rough start of the new school year, but should be able to drop by every now and then. We could meet in the fab yarn store in YVD, too, if anyone feels like it, nice alpacas and sock yarns.

Looks, ladies, I finished them and a ton of other projects as it's getting the right temps for knitted stuff again, just zero time to post them. I am working on a band again, hope you will come and cheer!

Hey there, you can surely come, everyone is welcome. I might not be there, but am sure somebody will be.

Welcome to EF, you can also drop a few lines about yourself in the intro section and no worries, everyone was once a noob. Nothing wrong with it, I kinda miss it

My wife would also like to join in, we arrived in Geneva last week from Houston, although we are British, took me a while to locate the correct Starbucks without Internet assistance, so far we had only found the one in Plain Palais and the another at Rive lol
