Limerick Rainbow Stitch’n’Bitch is a collective of individuals who love to craft.
It also includes those friends of ours who have no interest in craft but like the chilled out atmosphere created when people come together to create and share peaceful space.
Our crafters span the age range, the gender range, the orientation range and include knitting geeks, crochet enthusiasts, embroidery nerds and card makers.
As the London Stitch’n’Bitch put it:
We never turn a knitter or would-be knitter away. Any one is welcome: male, female, single, hitched, sweet, bitter, straight, fruity, smooth, fluffy, mild-mannered superhero, brazen supervillian, wallflower, party animal, singing detective or small dog* – the more the merrier.
Our group now alternates our Sunday meet ups between Zest Cafe, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Carnegie Building, Pery Square Limerick City and The Hunt Museum Cafe, Rutland Street, Limerick City.
We meet up from about 2pm until 4pm (some of us stick around until closing time). The venue is lovely and bright, wheelchair accessible and family friendly.**
As much as we really do love small dogs – and we really do 🙂 – we’ve found cafes aren’t so keen on them, so only guide dogs can come. Sorry!!
To Rainbow Support Services for providing space for our fledgling group in the early days.
