Well, it’s finally here. Stitch, the knitting and sewing store, opened this month in Des Moines, Iowa’s hip and happenin’ East Village. I brought my mentee there, and Jess taught her how to knit! I have my eye on a handful of fabric prints that I will most certainly buy once I know I have time to actually make anything myself… Probably Christmas gifts.
When that happens, the ladies at Stitch will be seeing me over there sewing away and drinking their coffee ($6/hr. to use their sewing machines, free if you bring your own machine).
After my mentee and I left the store I asked, “So, what’d you think?” She said quietly, “It was fun.” Five seconds later, “It was so fun!!! I can come here more, my brother can drop me off when he goes to work.” Crafty-fun mission accomplished!
