Stitch! is a new community enterprise aimed at satisfying the needs of the fast-growing army of crafters, from beginners to experts, who work and live in north London.
Based in bustling Green Lanes, N13, Stitch! occupies the shop premises of the former Grout’s outfitters, a Palmers Green shopping institution for more than 60 years.
The large corner shop retains many of its original Edwardian features along with an interior flooded with natural light – the perfect environment for hosting a wide range of crafting classes and events and for shoppers browsing for an impulse buy.
Carol, Karen and Suzanne, the three local women behind the launch of Stitch! are bringing together a roster of talented and creative trainers to lead their workshops and classes, helping those attending the sessions to gain confidence, new skills and make new friends along the way with people from all walks of life who share a similar passion.
Carol Balfe said: “Along with our range of craft classes we will also stock all manner of fabrics, haberdashery, crafting kits, equipment and products to suit all ages and pockets. The next time you are passing Stitch!, come inside and make your day.”
The launch of Stitch! is one of several initiatives supported by the Palmers Green Action Team aimed at creating Green Lanes N13 as the go-to local shopping experience.
