Seattle Small Business Shout-Out — Stitches

September 1, 2008

Seamsters, unite! Then, take a trip to Stitches, Capitol Hill’s sweet sewing and crafting spot, flush with awesome fabrics (Amy Butler? Sure! Stretch vinyl? Why not!), a stash of phat yarn, and all the notions you could need. Add friendly and knowledgeable staff, and you’ve got yerself a killer craft central.

Stitches, founded by owner Amy Ellsworth, a longtime Cap Hiller who wanted more than just Jo-Ann, also offers a project workspace, tricked out with high-end, if on-loan, sewing machines and cutting tables for those who don’t have enough room at home to live out their craftacular fantasies. The store also welcomes stich ‘n’ bitch groups to host gatherings in its comfy-couch space, provided there isn’t already a class or other craft group using the area. Staff on-hand are happy to offer help and advice if a pattern confounds or a stitch goes funky.

But wait — there’s more: Stitches offers crafty classes that let you learn both the basics and the tuff stuff, all in a nurturing, kind of rockin’ environment, and all for less than $50. Located at 711 East Pike; open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
