Welcome to Stitched Tribeca

Hi there and welcome to Stitched Tribeca (Version 2).

New location.  Cozier space.  Stitched Tribeca (Version 2) is my personal studio.  I've embarked on a quest to "10,000 hours to mastery" - specifically, mastery of all things crafty (big smiley face).  I work across mediums and I offer lessons in machine sewing, hand stitching and crochet.  I also host regularly scheduled "Craft Klatches" where a growing community of crafters can enjoy time together while inspiring each other with their handmade projects.

In case you're wondering - the original shop and scheduled classes were forced into a sudden halt when an upstairs tenant had an electrical fire on 3/22/14. What the fire started upstairs, the sprinkler system finished downstairs. Water soaked walls, floors, ceiling and compromised electrical wiring closed the orginal Stitched down. Then delays to necessary building repair made a timely return to the storefront impossible.  It was sad.  But in the past.  And now, life and studio continue on...

So, welcome to my website. Please do browse around. Contact me via facebook or e-mail if you have any questions or want to make an appointment to visit my studio.

Take a look at what the Stitched Tribeca kids have been up to. It’s just plain ol’ good fun to create together… but add to that the new techniques they are learning and practicing and in the end, the kids walk away with cool projects and skills for a lifetime.

Machine sewing. Hand stitching. Crochet. All sorts of miscellaneous craft knowledge and ideas picked up from lots making and experimenting.

I recommend project-based learning. I’m happy to work with you and/or your kids one-on-one or in small groups. Please contact me for more information.

Before there was the studio, there was the blog. Created to help myself find “inspiration in the everyday.” Made public in hopes that what inspired me might also inspire you.
