Sew What?

Every Monday morning at 10am the Sew What? women’s group gets together at the Stephenson Centre for a couple of hours of crafting, sharing, stitching and tea drinking. Or sometimes we walk over to Abbot Hall for a bit of creative inspiration!


Whatever your level of ability we can find something for you to join in with. Drop in to create something new or bring in a project you’ve been meaning to finish. We have a huge stock of materials for you to choose from.
