Aristotle was the first to write that what separates man from beast is not our ability to reason but rather our ability to use a needle and thread to sew our own books. Craft your own copy of Poetics with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of sewing and quilting classes at The Little Shop in Haddonfield.
Since the late 1950s, The Little Shop has evolved from a fabric shop to a quilting center that wraps needle-wielders in a comfortable, creative, and supply-packed environment. Its comprehensive roster of rotating classes keeps curious quilters and beginning thimble-holders satisfied, challenged, and armed with new stitching skills. Crafters with armloads of books, makeup, and Dawson's Creek fan fiction can sew durable supply tote bags ($25 for two classes) or breezy, chic scrunchy Kathy's bags ($25 for two classes) to lighten their loads. Or, sewers can ditch hands for the precision and speed of motors with a two-session machine-quilting class ($30).
During sewing classes, students tackle the challenging double-wedding-ring design ($40 for four classes) or simple and splashy pinwheel patterns ( $25 for two classes) that can inject quick whimsy into stitched replicas of The Scream. Materials are not provided, but may be purchased from The Little Shop's varied collection with your remaining Groupon balance.
