Stitch 'n' Bitch:
Stitch 'n' Bitch is a sociable group of crafters who get together to learn new skills and share their passion for the crafts they do. Whether or not you know one end of a crochet hook from another, you'll find a warm welcome. We specialise in knitting and crochet, but existing members also do cross stitch, dress-making, tailoring, and card making. We also teach knitting and crochet at every session, as well running regular workshops teaching different skills such as:
- Arm knitting
- Arm crochet
- Cross-stitch cards
If there are any new skills you really want to learn or improve on, ask us as we are more than happy to help.
The warm welcome helps people to get to know one another, and the sessions act as a drop in, so come for as long as you please. Keep your eyes open for us, and our work, throughout the semester.
We meet in room 4 of LUU, between 5 and 7pm every Monday. Come along for a cuppa, a biscuit and some crafting! You can even rent a sewing machine for £2 per hour.
Find out more via our Email, Facebook or Twitter.
Beginner kits in crochet and knitting are available to purchase for £5 and you do not need to be a member to buy one, though if you do want to become a member it only costs £1 for the year!

I am a third-year Classics student. I love reading, drawing and I write in my spare time. I really like Stitch and Bitch because everyone here is so welcoming, friendly, and happy to help you no matter what the problem is so it’s like having a little uni family. I mainly crochet but I do knit and sew a little too although I’m a little rusty at both.

I am a third year Classics student. I am massive book hoarder and have an obsession with Alice in Wonderland! My favourite thing about Stich n Bitch is that it's just a nice, friendly group of interesting people that I probably wouldn't have met without the society. I predominantly knit but I have been known to sew and cross stitch in the past :)

alya and I’m currently a second year midwifery student. I really enjoy going to Stitch’n’Bitch as it’s a place I can relax, socialise, and be creative! I love the variety of people and crafts that you can find there, as it means you’ll always find interesting conversation as well as constant craft inspiration (and more reasons to spend my student loan at Hobbycraft…). I mainly knit and am trying to get better at crochet, and I occasionally embroider and sew.
Social Secretory: Megan Rees
Hey I’m Megan and I am a third-year child nursing student. I really enjoy reading, all be it mainly trashy teen literature, watching TV and live music. I joined Stitch ‘n’ Bitch as a complete beginner and was quickly welcomed into the group, which now contains some of my closest friends. The society is so friendly and diverse that the comfortable atmosphere is exactly what you need after a long day at uni. I love that Stitch ‘n’ Bitch is somewhere I can go to vent about my day without being judged and that it is a place where I can continually learn new skills and evolve all my crafting ability.

I am a fourth year physics student! I enjoy comics and reading and am known to dabble in cake making. I mainly knit, even though it can sometimes take me a month or 10 to finish a project! The best thing about SnB is there are so many friendly faces! Whether I come with a friend or by myself, I always have someone to talk to and have a good natter with over a cup of tea!
