Stitch and b*tch: crafts circle [Zurich]

I'm just testing the waters to see if there is any interest in having a semi regular knitting/sewing/crocheting group in zurich where we would work on whatever project and hang out while snacking and drinking. I crochet and knit, and sometimes it's nice to do that with other people.

Re: Stitch and b*tch: crafts circle [Zurich]

Yup. If you have no background in knitting or crocheting I'll happily teach as well. Traditionally when I've done this I had pizza and drinks if it was during the day. If it was more evening, wines/beers would come out. The b*tching part is not obligatory but it makes it a lot of fun.

As I said earlier you can work on whatever you want, bit group projects are also quite possible if people have grand ideas.

Re: Stitch and b*tch: crafts circle [Zurich]

I kindle an interest (yeah, surprising isn't it?). Depending on who attends, maybe I could bring Mlle L-P? She can hold her own in b1tching, but if it gets too much we could wack some headphones on her head.

Re: Stitch and b*tch: crafts circle [Zurich]

If people are interested, we could start thinking of dates and times. Would weekdays or weekends work better? In terms of places to host, I can have about 6 people max at my place unless you want to sit on the floor. If kore people are interested then we might have to find a different place. In terms of tools for the needle arts, there's a wool store 1 bus Stop away from my place.

Weekdays afternoons work best. I am happy to host at my place too if nobody minds a dog joining in.

I'm inclined to agree that week nights are better.

Quick question: if you need stuff to practise on can we submit repair jobs for the group? I have a ajcket that needs a button sewing on and about three pairs of trousers and three shirts with a similar problem. I'd be happy to help provide the training material.

You can't be serious. Do you mean you can't sew a button on?

I can do buttons but can someone teach me how to replace a zip?

Re: Stitch and b*tch: crafts circle [Zurich]

I could host on a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon - as long as Richdog promises to come along so I can teach him to sew on a button...

I can easily fit 6-8 people, or more...I've got a sewing machine, overlocker and a snap-machine...

Re: Stitch and b*tch: crafts circle [Zurich]

I would join in if it was on a weekday evening or a weekend. I would also be happy to take my turn at hosting. I only have a small basic sewing machine so someone would maybe have to bring along something better for sewing.

Sounds like we have a good little group.

When should we attempt this? Next week? The week after?
