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.
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.
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.
Each year brings the opportunity for new and different projects. Many students come back year after year to continue learning and 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.
Classes are offered Tuesday-Friday in six, ongoing, 6-week sessions throughout the school year. Classes meet one hour per week (90 minutes for teens). 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.
