Fiber Arts Classes for Children and Adults
Fairfield County, CT
What We Teach
Our introductory fiber arts classes teach fundamental sewing skills, including cutting fabric, hand sewing, embroidery, and basic sewing construction. We build on these foundational skills in advanced classes where students learn machine sewing, additional construction techniques, design, and textile art including dyeing and block printing.
Our mission is to:
inspire people to examine how art & creativity can have function & purpose in their lives
teach people how to make something useful and beautiful
encourage sustainability and repurposing
support the handmade movement
give back to our community
Why We Teach
Where We Teach
We believe that where we teach is equally as important as what & why we teach, and we know that smaller, cozy & familiar classroom settings provide the best results. We offer our classes for third - fifth graders as part of after-school enrichment programs at elementary schools in Fairfield, CT. We also offer teen & adult classes held online or in-person.

Our newest class will be held on February 14 & 21 from 2:00 - 3:30pm. In this class, we will work on a Valentine-inspired sampler that focuses on hand-stitched lettering while teaching you the basics of embroidery and some of the most popular outline and fill stitches. We designed this sampler to give you the chance to stitch freestyle and practice the stitches you learned in class on your own at your leisure. Sign-ups open on January 19, 2021.
