About Us

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)
Alternate months

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.

If you have an interest in Textile Art, you are very welcome to join as a member or just visit us when you can.

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.
