Connecticut and our neighboring states are home to a wonderful wealth of fiber events and happenings. Please check back here often for a listing of upcoming events.
March 13-14, March 20-21
Stitches At Home March
STITCHES at Home brings something unique to the world of virtual events. Planned much like Camp STITCHES but you stay at home, so the learning experience can be presented over two weekends!
Choose from classes in knitting, spinning, weaving, crochet, patchwork, embroidery, sewing, color, garment design, and more. Polish a favorite technique, build your confidence, or try something entirely new. Since our instructors are at home too, they can invite you into their home studios where their tools, samples, and stashes make your time together even richer
