Meet with others in a small friendly group, practice creative textiles, have a chat, and buy a cuppa from the cafÃ©. Youâ€™ll be made very welcome!
We meet in the Upper Room Cafe, which is accessed from the car park behind Tescoâ€™s in Cheadle. Go through the entrance next to Tescoâ€™s back door, up the steps (or use the lift) and youâ€™ll find us in the room ahead.
10am - 12 noon on alternate Fridays. Â£1 per session. The next group will be held on Friday 28 January
What we do
â€¢ Youâ€™ll practice a range of textile techniques such as needle felting, hand embroidery, the use of transfer paint, and more.
â€¢ Try something new or rediscover an old interest. Learning new things helps increase our confidence as well as being fun.
â€¢ Suitable for complete beginners or those with some experience
â€¢ New projects are discussed within the group, and we are always open to new ideas. Although creative textiles is the main subject there are occasional craft projects too. And itâ€™s fine to just bring your knitting â€“ or any other projects - and get on with those!
â€¢ The session charge covers use of some materials, though group members also bring their own basic kit such as notepad and pencil, sewing needles and scissors etc
â€¢ The cafÃ© has a wide range of hot drinks, stocks delicious homemade cakes, and offers a wide range of light lunchtime meals or snacks.Â Click here to find our more about the Cafe.Â
It doubles as a gallery space and displays work by local artists, much of it for sale.Â Â
