IF YOU ARE NEW TO TRUMPINGTON, OR NEW TO STITCHING,
THIS COULD BE THE GROUP FOR YOU
We meet on Monday evenings from 6.30 to 9.00pm at Trumpington Pavilion, Paget Road CB2 9JF
We operate as a drop-in, not a formal club, so come when you can.
If you would like to know more about how we are organised, click here.
We have sewing machines, and a good range of fabrics and equipment for many types of stitchery and creative textiles.
We are always happy to help one another with projects, and, as well as this informal help, we organise occasional workshops when one of us shows some of the others a particular skill. We also enlist the services of professional tutors when a group of us wants to learn a new skill. Tap here for the leaflet with details of basic stitching skills workshops which are held on the first Monday of the month
We are just coming to the end of a major public art project associated with the enlargement of the village, “Trumpington 2016 – a Stitch in Time”
Many of us enjoy knitting for charity, and often combine forces to do so on the last Monday of the month.
We suggest a donation of £3 per session towards the hire of the hall. Those who want to become members pay a subscription of £10 a year, and contribute £2 a session.
WE TAKE IT IN TURNS TO ACT AS HOST FOR ANYONE WHO COMES FOR THE FIRST TIME, SO DO COME ALONG AND GIVE US A TRY
Trumpington Stitchers is a Time Credits Partner

OUR EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS
Thanks to grants from Cambridge City Council, and donations from John Lewis and local residents, we have a selection of sewing machines, cutters, and other equipment available, and a wonderful collection of materials, yarns, and haberdashery to work with.
We are also grateful to the Trumpington Residents’ Association, which manages the Trumpington Pavilion where we meet, and where we store our resources.
We use recycled materials as much as possible, and are members of Cambridge City Council Scrapstore which is an excellent local source of recycled craft supplies.
