Frequently asked questions
Can I still get involved if I do not live in Dundee?
Yes. We aim to match groups of people together on a geographical basis. We do have stitchers out with Dundee already.
Can I join existing groups of stitchers.
Yes, this should be possible. Please let Lyndsey know where you live and she will suggest a group to join.
Do you provide needles, rings and hoops?
There are no needles and there's no hoop in the stitcher pack.
Re hoops - just use your own judgment re this.
Use whatever hoops you find easiest to work with depending on the section you're working on.
Using a hoop helps to avoid creating
