Along-side monthly meetings Pimm's and Needles also run ad-hoc creative workshops and crafteroon teas.
Organisers Charlotte and Donna like to offer their members something a little bit different but sometimes find it's not possible to offer some activities at the usual monthly meetings due to the size of the group or cost and time involved.
Over the past three years Pimm's and needles members and guests have been treated to many opportunities to try out new and exciting crafts and activities in a more intimate sized group as extra session.
The ladies have bagged some top artists and designers to host silver ring-making afternoons, singing workshops, sewing and textiles sessions as well as organising more social activities such as cinema trips, party nights out and fun clothes swapping evenings.
Last Christmas a group of members visited Sunderland Glass centre and were thrilled to learn how to blow their own glass bauble. Pimm's and Needles seems to attract like-minded creative people who are interested in learning new skills and meeting new people.
Charlotte and Donna are keen to keep things fresh and exciting so please feel free to get in contact if you feel that you've got an activity that could be of interest for either monthly meetings or as an extra workshop session.
