Best Place to Become a Domestic Goddess

Stitch Factory



With the economy still sputtering along and the Earth’s resources buckling under the weight of our conspicuous consumption, it’s never been a better time to get crafty. But the cost and legwork required can make mastering the domestic arts a bit intimidating for everyone but your grandma and a few cooler-than-thou hipsters. Downtown fashion lab Stitch Factory is doing its part to bring sewing to the masses. At their evening social classes, you can stop by after work and let a cheery former home-ec teacher coax you through making a custom-designed maxi skirt or studded headband, all in just three hours and for about the price of the same item at Target (supplies included). Sense of accomplishment: priceless.
