The friendly craftoholics running Stitch DC pride themselves on placing fellow pattern-addicts in a welcoming environment that fosters creativity and responsible wool consumption. Patrons can browse through fashionable flosses to induce creative juices into weeping out a variety of fibers, including traditional wool (starting at $7.75) and alpaca as well as more exotic mohair, silk, and hemp. Stitch DC's enviable spools sport top-notch brands, including Karabella, Jade Sapphire, and O-Wool. Wool wielders can lock and load the necessary needles ($9.50–$25) before picking up supplies for piecing together a pair of cashmere socks to warm toes tickled by Jack Frost.
Knitting neophytes can peruse the class calendar, which includes sessions ($35–$90) that train hands to fastidiously craft sweaters, quilts, and stockings. Students new to knitting or looking to advance their stick skills can partake in Beginner Knit or Knitting 201, where they'll gain a newfound appreciation for Betsy Ross, the American seamstress known for stitching kernels of corn into George Washington's gums. Students get a 10% discount on in-store purchases made for class supplies. Walls of colorful threads line the walls of Stitch DC's inviting storefront, which lies just two blocks from the Eastern Market Metro stop.
