SCR Sewing, Knitting, Cross Stitch and another craft - Club

Any crafter of any level is welcome at the SCR Craft Club - knitters, crocheters, cross-stitchers, embroiderers and many more! Bring something you are working on already, come and fish for tips about a new project or learn an entirely new skill!

We're a very informal group who meet on the last Thursday of every month in the SCR at 7pm. If you'd be interested in coming along, please contact Anne Murphy on jbscr.president@durham.ac.uk

SCR Book Club

New members are always welcome to join the SCR Bookclub (second Thursday of the month at 7pm in the SCR starting September). Please get in touch with Eve English (Eve.English@durham.ac.uk) if you would like to join a very informal group.
