Women's Textile Group at Manchester Jewish Museum at Manchester Jewish Museum, Cheetham Hill 13 January — 14 April 2022 Entrance is free — Visit now

Manchester Jewish Museum is inspiring women to socialise, sew and share ideas in a new Women’s Textile Group. The sessions are a great place to make new friends and practice your textile craft. Each week different artists and guest speakers will be invited in to share their work with the group, while you’ll develop a variety of your own creative projects.

The group meets at the Jewish Museum on the second Thursday of every month. This is a friendly, safe and welcoming group open to any self-identifying woman from any faith. It’s a great way to learn new creative skills and meet other like minded people. It’s also completely free and no previous sewing experience is necessary for you to get the most out of the sessions.
