The friendly craftoholics running Stitch DC pride themselves in placing fellow pattern addicts in a welcoming environment that fosters creativity and responsible wool consumption. In each 90-minute beginner's session, you'll use hands-on techniques to learn the basic tenets of knitting, purling, stockinette stitching, seed stitching, cast-ons, and bind offs, resulting in a wide knowledge of patterns and an appreciation for Betsy Ross, the American seamstress known for stitching kernels of corn into George Washington's gums. Stitch DC opens patrons pores and allows their creative juices to weep out a variety of fibers including wool, alpaca, silk, hemp, and more.

Walls of colorful threads line the walls of Stitch DC's inviting storefront, which lies just two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro stop. Check out the schedule and call to set up your classes.


Stitch DC has been featured by community blog The Hill Is Home. Yelpers give it an average of three stars.

  • From beginner workshops that teach small and relatively unambitious projects (Don’t be offended! It’s ambitious enough to decide you want to start knitting!), to classes that focus on finishing projects and finishing mistakes, Stitch DC covers everyone who ever wanted to do something beautiful with fiber. – Maria Carey, The Hill Is Home
  • I love the feel of this place, it's comfortable and friendly and they have beautiful yarns. They also have lots of project books, magazines and patterns for inspiration. The owner often staffs the store herself, and the others who work there are always friendly and helpful. – Jenn W., Yelp

Not a big materials selection but they had what I needed for my class and Marie was such a good, patient and FUN teacher. Everyone there got lots of individual attention. They are consentrating on classes and will carry yarn for specific projects. I will definitely go back!
