Creating a sewing movement one stitch at a time
Washington DC (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
CraftyStitches is an e-commerce shop that specializes in bridesmaids gifts and personalized monogram accessories. The company has announced that it is scouting new locations around the Northern Virginia area to launch its year-round sewing camps. The camps will offer kids K-12 classes, as well as parties where they can use sewing to engage in fun and educational activities.
The company also holds sewing parties for adults for all occasions, birthday, graduation, or bridal. To pilot this, the team is collaborating with nearby microbrewery Lost Rhino Brewery in Ashburn Virginia, to hold a “Sew n Pint Party”. The brewery founded in 2011 focuses on using local ingredients and is teaming up with CraftyStitches to promote organic and locally sourced products. At the “Sew n Pint Party” members will follow a short tutorial to design and sew their own beer tote. The team aims to spread the movement that sewing, and the process of making something with your hands, is a fresh way to relax while using parts of the brain that improve communication and analytical skills.
The “Sew n Pint Party” is scheduled for June 4th at the Lost Rhino Brewery in Ashburn Virginia. Register for the event through http://www.meetup.com/craftystitches/
