*Please note: We are suspending meetups at all locations through the end of March (and may extend the hiatus depending on how everything looks at the end of the month) as a safety precaution agains the COVID-19 pandemic. Stay safe and wash your hands! We'll hopefully see you all in April.*
Hello and thanks for checking out the Oakland Stitch & Bitch Meetup Group!
We're here to connect with fellow crochet, knitting, and sewing enthusiasts in the Bay Area, and to make new friends! Fiber artists of all skill levels (though please note this is not a class), are invited for a cup of tea, a friendly conversation, and plenty of support and help with their work. We meet weekly, every Tuesday night from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (don't worry about being right on time). We've been going strong for over ten years now, and we know you will enjoy our group! And don't be fooled by low RSVP numbers: our regular members don't RSVP on-site much anymore, but the group is normally between 10 and 15 people! We hope to see you soon!
About the new Berkeley Branch and Annex Meetups: Our fearless leader has finally opened two locations of the yarn, fabric, and craft supply shop she's been dreaming of for longer than this group has been around! There will now be a Thursday night Stitch & Bitch (Something people have been asking for for years!) that meets every week from 6-9 p.m. just like the original, but it is located inside The Black Squirrel, and a Friday night group from 6-9 p.m. at the Oakland Annex! Complimentary tea (Berkeley location only) and a few snacks will be provided, and there's lots of to-go dining options along 4th Street and in Temescal that can be brought along. Also all attendees get a 10% discount off any purchases if temptation proves too great, so if you forget your scissors or break a needle, no worries! See the Meetup event in this group for details!
