Little Stitch Studio is a fun space for kids, teens and adults of all ages to learn fashion sewing and design techniques.
Little Stitch Studio is a fashion program that teaches kids and teens sewing and fashion design throughout the school year and summer.
Through hands-on learning, children are introduced to the world of fashion. Classes combine the practical skill of sewing with pattern making, draping, textile science, illustration, and fashion history to enable young designers to discover the joy and excitement of creating something with their own two hands.
At Little Stitch Studio, classes are kept very small to ensure lots of one-on-one individual attention.
Each student works to their ability and at a pace that is comfortable for them. The classroom is set up to encourage a good workflow for design, cutting, sewing, and sharing. Little Stitch Studio has all the fabric, machines and tools at the ready- and included in the fees. Students take home and keep everything they’ve made in class.
Fashion Sewing for Kids : A Perfect Fit!
Through hands-on learning, students experience the thrill of making something on their own. Classes, Camps, Workshops and Birthday Parties are available for kids ages 6-18 and adults of all ages, at any skill level.
Classes are perfect for both beginners and returning students.
Each year brings the opportunity for new and different projects. Many students come back year after year to continue learning and to deepen their skills. Former students have gone on to the Governor’s School of Art, Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), Radford University, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) and Parsons School of Design. But the real proof of competence is from the hands on work the kids produce.
Little Stitch Studio fosters a welcoming and creative atmosphere, where each student can express their creativity, gain self-confidence and learn new skills.
Classes are offered Tuesday-Friday in five, ongoing, 8-week sessions throughout the school year. Classes meet one hour per week (90 minutes for teens and homeschool). Enrollment is open throughout the year, as long as space is available.
Preferential registration is extended to returning students. If you think that you might like to enroll your child in a class, please send me a message.
If there is a specific class that you are interested in and it is full, please jump on the waitlist to receive notice as soon as there is space available. The link for the waitlist is on each class registration page.
Little Stitch Studio is committed to creating a community and culture that builds belonging. We are deeply committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. We warmly welcome students of all backgrounds.
