About Us

Who are the Shoreditch Sisters and what is a Women’s Institute anyway? 

The Shoreditch Sisters WI was established in October 2007 by founding member and past President, Jazz Domino Holly. Almost nine years on the Shoreditch Sisters are a group of incredible, funny, intelligent, creative and just generally badass women. We meet at The Strongroom on Curtain Road, Shoreditch on the second Tuesday of every month at 7pm.

We campaign on issues that we get angry about and we take to the streets to demand change, we sew things so beautiful that they make grown men cry, we press gang amazing speakers into coming to talk to us, we get drunk and sing Kate Bush songs, we bake cakes and eat them all in a single sitting, we talk about literature like we’re Parisian bohemians, we have a bicycle gang, we are radio stars that video didn’t even kill, we have a totes hilar blog, we can knit to a level that exceeds human comprehension and we meet amazing new lady friends at every single meeting.
