Pom Pom making with Stitch-Up19 Jan 2017Pom Pom making with Stitch-UpToday Grasshoppers were able to go to Stitch-Up’s Pop-up workshop in Thornton’s Arcade (Leeds City Centre). It was a real treat as we were the first group to try out the new workshop space.  Jen Sharp, the owner and creator of Stitch-Up, taught us how to make pom poms.  We got to teach Jen some useful Makaton signs to use with her other groups and we got to work on our own social communication skills. We hope we can work with Jen on some more exciting projects in the future.
