STITCH on Hiatus

There are amazing opportunities on the horizon for STITCH. To allow time and energy to make those dreams come to fruition, STITCH will be on hiatus until further notice. Growing pains can be difficult, but STITCH plans to come back bigger and better when it does!

I will no longer be offering any of the five session, weekly, classes but will be offering the following if there is enough interest.

I will be offering a two day 102 workshop on a Friday and Saturday each month, with 6 spots available each day. This class will be $125 per day and will run from 10-12:30 with a break for lunch and continue from 1:30-7. Food will not be included, but with the hour break students can go anywhere in the area for lunch, or pack your own. Bottled water will be provided. 

As long as there is enough interest in this class I will continue to offer this option as long as possible at the current location. Basically, by taking one of the all day classes each month, you will be getting the sewing time of four weeks of 102! If you can take both days each month, you will be getting in SO much sewing time!!!

If you have any comments, questions, or concerns please do let me know and I will do my very best to address them. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful roster of students, and that I get to spend time with you all, doing what I love, teaching!

I really wanted to be able to continue to offer all of you time at the studio- but as things gear up for changes I just will not be able to keep the weekly schedule as it stands. I hope you will all join me in the all day classes!

I will release the dates of these monthly classes ASAP.

 

Sincerely,

Alexia

Carrie has been enjoying sewing since age 13 when her mother began teaching her the fundamentals of the craft.  Her hand-made creations range from everyday wear to bridal gowns.  She especially enjoys re-purposing vintage items and making alterations.  She feels immensely enriched by the ability to create with needle and thread and considers it one of her favorite art forms.
