We know that many people have more sewing and fiber art supplies than they can manage. Our goal is to put those supplies to use in our studio and to provide them to other makers in the community. Together we can reduce the waste created and give a second life to materials!


At this time we are accepting donations.


Donations received at Hartford Stitch may be used for our classes and workshops, donated to local organizations, or provided to the community.
