Welcome to Capital Sew and Sew

Welcome to Capital Sew and Sew - a site devoted to nurturing the next generation of sewers, knitter and crocheters - or to re-engage those who have stitched in the past and want to start again.

Starting January 2007 I will host an open studio once a month for young and old, experienced and novice to come and learn or teach about sewing, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, and more! We will create garments and other handmade objects - together.

Email me if you or your kids are interested in joining us!
