Stitch & Bitch: intro to Beaded Embroidery

September 14, 2023

Get your glasses at the ready, Meg is getting the bead box out – and she’s going to show us all about seed beads and bugle beads.

If you struggle with tiny, fiddley things, this one might not be for you. We also advise that you might want to bring a very fine needle threader if you have one.


We’re an informal crafty club that meets once a month. The group was established in 2011 as an excuse to get our stitch on with local like-minded people.
S&B is for everyone who wants to learn, improve or show off their textile crafting skills. We are passionate about learning new crafts, making fun stuff and sharing it with each other & the world!
These monthly taster sessions are free to attend, and there is no need to book. Basic tools and materials will be provided but you may be asked to bring certain things to attend. Each session will have a theme, but you are welcome to bring along your own project to work on independently.
This series of 7 workshops has been generously supported by the Colchester City Council Cultural & Creative Events Fund, and our venue, Firstsite.
Thanks to their support these sessions are free for the public to attend. The sessions are aimed at beginners and improvers, to help give our local community access to creative activity, and to combat loneliness and social isolation. We would especially like to encourage attendance of people from low income households, but everyone is welcome.
Please support our host venue by purchasing a refreshment or two from the bar or cafe if you are able to. Donations to Firstsite are also welcome.

In 2023, our series of 7 monthly workshops have been generously supported by Colchester Borough Council’s Cultural & Creative Events Fund and by our new venue.
Thanks to their support, these workshops are FREE to attend.
Our group leaders Amy & Meg also deliver workshops for Firstsite & Essex County Council, and fees from these go into funding S&B too.
