Stitch 'n' Bitch is a sociable group of crafters who get together to learn new skills and share their passion for the crafts they do. Whether you know one end of a crochet hook from another or not, you'll find a warm welcome. We specialise in knitting and crochet, but existing members also do cross stitch, dress-making, tailoring, and card making. We also teach knitting and crochet at every session, as well as themed workshops each month during term time, which include but are not limited to:
- Beginners knitting
- Beginners crochet
- Sew-vival skills
- Arm knitting
- Wool dyeing
- and much more! See the events tab for when and where the workshops are.
If there are any new a skills you really want to learn or improve on, ask us.We are more than happy to help.
The warm welcome helps people to get to know one another, and the sessions act as a drop in so come for as long as you please. Keep your eyes open for us, and our work, throughout the semester.
We meet in room 4 of LUU, between 5 and 7pm every Monday. Come along for a cuppa, a biscuit and some crafting! You can even rent a sewing machine for £2 per hour.

I'm a second year Philosophy student,and my pronouns are He/Him. I am obsessed with Lush and collecting limited pressings of coloured vinyl, and not just to hoard them! My favourite thing about Stitch ‘n’ bitch is swapping interesting tips and ideas whilst in a supportive environment. It's pleasant to be around people I wouldn't have known otherwise whilst in a casual atmosphere. Knitting and crochet are my main crafts, with a bit of sewing on the side (though this certainly needs some development!).

I am a first year Classics student whose pronouns are She/Her. I am massive book hoarder and have an obsession with Alice in Wonderland! My favourite thing about Stich n Bitch is that it's just a nice, friendly group of interesting people that I probably wouldn't have met without the society. I predominantly knit but I have been known to sew and cross stitch in the past :)
General Secretary: Hannah Hargreaves
I am a first-year Classics student. I love reading, drawing and I write in my spare time, and my pronouns are she/her. I really like Stitch and Bitch because everyone here is so welcoming, friendly, and happy to help you no matter what the problem is so it’s like having a little uni family. I mainly crochet but I do knit and sew a little too although I’m a little rusty at both.
Social Secretary: Yulia Volkovaya
I'm studying second year History, and my pronouns are She/Her. When I'm not knitting, I watch anime and bake every kind of bread. My favourite thing about SnB would have to be meeting all sorts of new people and getting to chat about all things wooly and wonderful. As for my craft, I usually knit, but I can sew and cross stitch too.
Social Secretary: Megan Rees
I am a first year Child Nursing student, with pronouns She/Her. I have just graduated with a Biological Sciences degree from Leeds. I like reading, listening to live music and watching trashy TV in my free time. I love how everyone is so friendly, welcoming and non-judgmental at Snb as well as always being willing to help! I'm a beginner knitter but I am also pretty decent at sewing.
Enterprise Officer: Liv Adu
I am a third year Geology student, my pronouns are She/Her. In my spare time I enjoy reading, photography and the great outdoors! The reason I love SnB so much is because of the culture; it is so laid back and inclusive it puts anyone at ease. I remember my first session I didn’t know anyone or what to expect but by the end of it I was discussing the role of gender in society while learning how to cast off a garter stitch. It is by far one of the most diverse groups I have been a part of. My Crochet is at a beginner’s level but my main craft is sewing I am also pretty good at knitting and cross stitch too.
