Textile Crafters Meetup #2
17th February 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Do you sew, draft patterns, design clothing, quilt, spin wool, knit, crochet, felt, weave by hand or by loom, screenprint, work in vinyl, or otherwise manipulate fabrics and fibres?
If so, you’re invited to Oxhack’s second Textile Crafters gathering at our brand new sewing room. Recently reclaimed from disuse and disrepair, the room is now freshly painted with polkadots, filling up with sewing machines, irons, interesting tools and drafting dummies, and itching to be used by you. The room is open for use by the creators and textiles crafters of Oxford, so come along to meet the group, have some tea and chat, help build up the room’s community of users, and share with us what sorts of facilities would be useful for you. All levels welcome!
Especially invited are the “elder stateswomen” (and others) of sewing and textileswork, those who have decades of experience in these crafts. Your knowledge is highly prized here! The group currently has a number of members who are younger or newer to the craft, so if you or your mother, grandmother or older friend might enjoy helping to guide hands-on learning here, please do come along or leave us a comment!
We intend to start holding these meetups twice a month from February onwards, when it’s possible, namely on the FIRST SUNDAY and THIRD FRIDAY of every month. We will post here when each new date is confirmed. Please come down and meet us, and we hope to see you soon!
