CityCraft’s enthusiasm for burgeoning trends shatters preconceived notions about sewing. Instead of bland, monotone fabrics, the shop plays host to an array of modern textiles in trendy colors, patterns, and textures. Robot prints, blinding neons, vintage bicycles, myriad moustaches on an eggshell backdrop—these are just some of the whimsical designs a visitor might find on its shelves on any given trip. And because no sewer likes style without substance, many prints appear on 100% cotton, organic cloth, imported Japanese fabrics, or other contemporary materials. For those who need help talking pin to pattern, diverse sewing classes teach students how to start stitching or further their existing skills. In addition to learning their way around the sewing machine, each student also leaves with a new accessory made in-class, whether it be a mini messenger bag, a pair of pajama pants, or a merely decorative parachute.
