Maude and Hazel have years worth of experience between them and have been running their sewing craft workshops for over 5 years; first at the Loughborough Centre, then at the Grove Adventure Playground and now at the Carnegie Library Hub, described as it’s “happiest home” by Anthea Masey, director of LJAG who co-ordinates the Lambeth funded group.
It’s great to see how well loved and attended the sessions are, with a diverse range of residents of all ages and abilities. All are welcome to help themselves to tea and coffee and get on with projects from mending and darning to designing and making their clothes, curtains and anything else. There is enough space to spread out across tables devoted to needle skills, knitting and crochet, pattern cutting and the use of professional sewing machines. Maude and Hazel are on hand to share their skills, helping newcomers to get started and supporting experience crafters with whatever projects they bring.
We aim to expand and build on our diverse programme of events, classes and groups, welcoming all members of the community to a friendly space that builds connection through shared activity.
