Best Place to Learn a Traditional Skill

Dewey Street


Perhaps you want to expand on an already accomplished life skill such as quilting, or you seek a beginner’s guide to sewing, or maybe you simply desire a girlie get-together off the Strip. Then Dewey Street awaits you. Founders Cindy and her daughters Lindsay and Laurie grew up on threads and glue and inherited the creative gene from Joan Faust, mother and grandmother of the crafty trio, respectively. Faust lived on Dewey Street in West Springfield, Massachusetts, and inspired the women to turn trash into treasures. They offer children ages 8 and above sewing and quilting lessons on weekends.

2960 S. Durango Dr., Suite 111, 767-0338.
