Birds of a Feather
Owner Elizabeth Sheehe fills the aisles of Birds of a Feather, an authorized Pfaff and Elna dealer, with knitting, quilting, and textile art supplies, in addition to hosting an array of classes. During knitting classes, instructors impart basic stitches and techniques to refine yarn crafting or patch the space-time continuum. Quilting classes teach students basic concepts, how to make use of machine appliques, and how to convert vintage clothing into quilt squares. A rotating schedule of other classes net crafters finished projects such as knitted socks and felted totes. Groups of four or more can arrange clandestine after-hours knitting classes with a BYOB option and no additional fees.
