On Saturday, May 24, from 2:00—4:00pm, the Museum will be hosting a afternoon event inspired by the new temporary exhibit, Threads Through Time: A Coastal Textile History.

Come to the museum, bring your current projects and let’s celebrate our textile arts!  Combining all kinds of social textile making events including Spin-ins and Quilting Bees this ‘Stitch ‘n Bitch’ will knit, crochet, sew, quilt, spin, weave, stitch, and socialise!  Bitching is optional. 

The term ‘Stitch ‘n Bitch’ is a phrase that has been used to refer to social knitting groups since World War II.  The groups, mainly women, meet to knit, stitch and talk. 

At the Museum the Threads Trough Time exhibit will be open and the curator Beth Boyce will be on hand to answer questions and hopefully do some stitching herself.   If you don’t know how to knit, but are interested in learning, there will be staff on hand from the Needle and Arts Centre willing to get you started.   

Admission will be by donation and there will be coffee, tea, and some sweet treats.
