Manchester Jewish Museum


Our community activities are a great way to connect with people, learn new skills and have a great time while engaging with history and culture.

Whether you’re a foodie, a crafter or a budding song-writer, we’ve got the perfect activities for you.

See below for details of our different groups and how to get involved.

Women’s Textile Group

Do you want to join a new group, meet new people and learn new skills? Are you nifty with a needle or can spin a good yarn?

Our Women’s Textile group is a great place to make new friends and practice your textile craft. Working with different artists and guest speakers, the group works on a variety of creative projects.

We are a friendly group open to any self-identifying woman, no sewing experience necessary!
