We’re a small group of disparately minded artists. While we’re all independently minded, we also recognize the value of working together which involves both collective art pieces and hosting art events. Right now we’re building ourselves a community where we can thrive both together and apart, though it should be noted we’d like to keep our community smaller as we appreciate a more intimate vibe.
Hello Stitch is a community-based textile studio that offers workshops, communal work space, a gallery space, and community events. We also provide domestic and industrial sewing machine sales and quilt finishing services. We believe that learning how to sew is about building skills. At Hello Stitch, we will help you build these skills and give you the space, tools and support you’ll need to love what you create!
