Fancy Joining Us For a Stitching Tea Party?

Our Summer Party in July This Year Is In aid of Cancer Research UK

I like to hold our regular charity 'Stitching Tea Parties' in a room at the nature reserve in Rainton Meadows, just on the outskirts of Durham. That means not only do we help a good cause on the day but we are also helping the nature reserve too. The parties last 4-5 hours long and no one knows what they are going to make until the day. It's always a surprise! Not only that but there is a lunch provided (by the cafe at Rainton Meadows), which is included in the price of the ticket along with the project fee.

A £1 from every ticket sold is donated to the charity by myself along with all funds raised by our raffle on the day. Each time we hold one of these events we help a different charity. Last time, in March this year, we raised £220 for the RNLI.

The parties are always popular and well attended and it can sometimes be difficult to bag a ticket (see availability below). Or perhaps you don't live in the area? If you belong to a sewing group and would like a chance to have a Stitching Tea Party with your friends, please get in touch and we'll see if it's possible for me to come along to a venue near you?


For Those of You Who Live In the North East

The next tea party is to be Saturday 13th July (11 - 3pm)

Tickets are £28 each

(Which includes your lunch and a kit).

I currently have 2 spaces left for this party. Please get in touch if you think you can join us.

Past Tea Party Projects We've Made Include:

Seagulls (for the RNLI), snap purses (for Alzheimers), needle books for the WWF (Worldwide Fund for Nature) and brooches - (I think was for Guide Dogs for the Blind).

These are just a few things we've made as I've held 15 charity tea parties to date and as mentioned the next one is for Cancer Research UK.

Instructions are always given and help is on hand if you haven't sewn before. So don't be put off if you are new. It's just a bit of fun and its always attended by a lovely crowd.

Thanks Sharon
