The Stitching Bee

The Stitching Bee is an informal monthly gathering of stitchers hosted by Snuggly Monkey in the heart of downtown Durham, NC at Sew Crafty Sewing Studio. This is an opportunity for the local stitching community to come together and share their knowledge while meeting new friends and working on a project.

Each month there will be a featured project - you are welcome to join in or bring your own separate handwork project to work on. Hand embroidery, cross stitch, sashiko, hand quilting, English paper piecing, knitting, crochet ... everyone is welcome! 

Bring a project, grab some take-out and your favorite beverage and Come Join the Hive!
