Stay Alert.. and cover your face…

Hello All,

Here at Stitch in Time HB we hope you are all safe, well and happy.

It has been a while since I have written anything, but I have been very busy trying to keep things ticking over whilst keeping a one year old entertained – she can walk now, so we’ve reached next level.

we hope you are safe, well and happy!

Stay Positive

Anyway… we have some REALLY EXCITING new products coming very soon! Watch this space!

However, for now… We have introduced a line of face masks. So, if you are going out and about and need a mask to help protect yourself from the dreaded Covid then here is a 10% off coupon for all of our face masks (there will be more coming over the next few days – this coupon is valid until the end of May).

10% off Face Masks until June

Women’s Face Mask

Our face masks come in 4 different sizes: small child, older child, women’s and men’s. They all have two layers and elastic for behind the ears, some have a pocket for a changeable filter.

Messy Minis at Hebden Bridge Craft Fair!


Messy Minis is a brilliant, fantastic, wonderful (insert all other positive adjectives) art group based in Hedben Bridge. The group runs during term time Tuesdays, 9.45 – 11.15 at Hebden Royd Methodist Church opposite the Co-op. Messy Minis hosts a wide range of sensory and process arts and crafts for little ones from newborn upwards. Each week there is a new theme to the activities, from rainbows to autumn colours. Jocasta (the lovely lady who runs the group) finds new and interesting ways to use everyday items to make fabulous art, and provide a lovely experience for the little ones.

This year at Hebden Bridge Christmas Arts and Crafts fair we have the absolute delight of hosting Messy Minis upstairs at The Hope Baptist church!

We cannot wait to see you and your little ones at The Hope Baptist Church on the 7th December to get involved in some Christmas themed arts, crafts and sensory activities.

Messy Minis will be providing a range of Christmas themed craft activities, for you to make and take away with you. Some crafts will be free of charge and some will have a small fee. Craft based activities for all the family to enjoy.

So… we are definitely providing something for the whole family…

Drinks, cakes, shopping, music, and something to entertain the little ones!

See you there!

Christmas Events…

Stitch in Time HB have got two Christmas Fairs coming up, like last year we are working with Heptonstall museum and Hope Baptist Church (Hebden Bridge). Last years events were very successful (apart from the ice rain in Hebden Bridge… we’ll try our best to order some good/ accessible weather this year!), so we’re hoping to have even more through the doors this year!

To make our events as successful as they are we rely on our amazing artists, makers, musicians, and volunteers.

So.. this blog is a CALL OUT for the above!

We are on the hunt for wonderful artists who would like a stall at one or both of our Christmas events.

Do you have a small craft business? Or do you craft as a hobby and feel like sharing your crafts this Christmas? Then why not have a stall at one of our events!


Stitch in Time HB events promote communities getting together to share their work and shopping locally. There’s no need to go to the big cities and spend money in high street shops when you can buy a beautiful handmade gift right on your doorstep.

If you are interested in having a stall please follow this link to find out more, and apply:
