Social Groups

Plain & Pearl

Plain & Pearl is a friendly, social and all-inclusive group of people interested in knitting and other craft activities. We welcome people of all ages, gender, race and creed. The only requirement is enthusiasm to craft things.

The group meets twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings 19:30-21:30 at St Mary’s Parish hall, Langham Rd, Teddington TW11 9HF.

There is a £2 fee per session to cover the cost of refreshments which include fresh tea/coffee and home-baked cake prepared by Josie, the leader of the group. There is no need to book, just turn up.

Last year we welcomed new members to the group, bringing a lot of fresh ideas and extra enthusiasm after the pandemic and we are now back in full swing.

Additionally, we organise a variety of themed activities such as workshops or excursions to museums or craft fairs etc. These special activities are optional, normally bookable in advance and involve a nominal fee to cover the costs of material and any external instructors.

Apart from the social aspect of our get-togethers, we participate in the St Mary with St Alban’s Church Christmas  bazaar and Teddington Village summer fair where we sell our craftwork. We give any funds from the sales to charities. Also by participating in these events we aim to raise awareness in the community of the many benefits of craft to children and adults alike.

For 2023, we have planned a number of crafty and fun activities, including knitting masterclasses, mending, embroidery, candle making workshops and, of course, the much-anticipated craft material swap on Tuesday 25 April.
