    The Stitchery on Zoom

    While we can't gather around our lovely table, we can still gather together through the magic of Zoom. Reserve this time for stitching and connection. Brew yourself a cup of tea, bring out your stitching, log onto Zoom. We can help one another with our stitching and feel the good feelings of connecting through work. This is an all ages, all skill levels event.

    Bring a project you are working on: embroidery, darning, felting, hand sewing, knitting, weaving, cross stitch, punch needle, crochet, or any other hand work.  Share tips.  Bring questions. 

    There is no cost for this event, though, if you are able, please do consider a donation to The Learnary to help us through this challenging time.


    Time: Sundays from 1:00pm to 2:30pm
