Stitches and Hos are a motley crew of stitch enthusiasts based in Birmingham, UK.  We use yarn and needles to challenge stereotypes around the art of stitch. 

Stitches and Hos was started in 2006 by Sara Fowles and a group of friends. Whilst sipping in the lounge bar of their local pub one friend posed the question "Wouldn't it be funny if people were knitting in here?" 

Stitches and Hos produce events, projects and pieces with stitch at their heart, including our annual yarn festival Yarningham
