Welcome to the Gathering Threads – Textiles & Fibres in Notts group. We are a friendly, enthusiastic and active group of over forty members, covering a wide range of interests within stitched textiles, and warmly welcome both new members and visitors.
Our meetings alternate between -
the 2nd Sat 2 - 4 pm (Ruddington Methodist Church Hall),
the 2nd Thu 7 - 9 pm (St Paul’s Church Hall)
Nottingham City Transport Bus routes 8 and 9 (Green Route) travel along Boundary Road close to St Paul's and Bus route 10 travels into Ruddington.
Once we are meeting face to face, you can be sure of a friendly welcome at our meetings, where we usually have a speaker or, twice a year, a more social meeting. Our speakers cover a wide range of topics - all types of stitch, including embroidery, quilting, beading and knitting. Several times a year, the speaker stays overnight and gives a Workshop the next day. We have a lending library of textile books and videos and some equipment and at most meetings we have a sales table.
We meet monthly (except for August) at either St Paul's Church Hall, Boundary Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham NG2 7DB or Ruddington Methodist Church Hall (Opposite Co-op), Charles Street, Ruddington NG11 6EF
Meetings and refreshments are free to members.
