Stitch...  and a Sneakily Stitch Spring

Sneakily stitching spring greetings to you !

A very speedy Stitch London newsletter to catch you up on what's happening in the world of wool. Since we don't seem to be getting a spring this year Knit the City have stitched one just for you. We shove some Dr Who craft in your face, and if you're in London you can join us for the #imapiece exhibition.

Fancy joining us for a Stitch Up? Join our weekly London meetings. You can even become a Stitch London Stitch Sage.
Not in London? Join us on Facebook and Twitter and pretend you are! There are viritual Stitch Londoners in 52 countries worldwide.

Wander into the woolly wonder below...


We all love our woolies but the fact that it's still brass monkeys out there, and we are still wearing them, is getting us down here at Stitch London HQ. Lucky for us Knit the City, London's pioneering yarnstorming graffiti knitting collective, arrived on the scene and stitched up their very own spring. Woo hoo!

Here are some sneak peeks at their yarnstorming craziness in London's lovely Brixton:

Stitch London

Back to work! And no knitting under your desk! Unless you think you can get away with it.
Keep calm and carry yarn, Stitch Londoners.
