Just south of the river, there's a colorful sign pointing you toward a Craftsman bungalow bustling with creativity and inspiration. Last winter, Leslie Bonnell and her crafty cohorts assembled Stitch Lab from informal sewing classes held at homes and studios to a full-fledged center. The often wait-listed classes, geared to both kids and adults, cover topics from millinery for tweens to advanced garment construction and even screenprinting. Further inspiration comes from the bolts and bolts of bright fabrics, including retro prints and wool felts along the walls, as well as the Sublime Stitching embroidery patterns and notions tucked into available nooks. There's no project too big or small for the Stitch Lab teachers to help you make it work.
