Day 57: StitchCraft in Uptown Village
Day 57 of 365…
Do you love to knit, crochet, embroider, cross stitch, or embellish? If you said yes to any of these things then you need to head downtown Vancouver to 22nd and Main Street in Uptown Village and check out StitchCraft. This boutique is MADE for you. Do you want to learn how to knit, embroider, cross stitch or embellish? If so, you need to come on in and check it out as well. As the sign out front says, “Handmade is beautiful” and this place is all about that. If you’re looking for yarns, fabrics, laces, patterns, books and more you’ll find it all here.

We have added another Soiree (open stitching) time at StitchCraft:
Thursdays, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Fridays, 11:00am – 3:00pm
The Soiree is free of charge and we ask that our customers work on projects with items purchased from StitchCraft. If you are a new customer, we understand you may be finishing up a previous project. Support your Local Yarn Shop and your local economy.
Open Project Class
Each Thursday night from 6:30pm – 8:30pm is our open project class. Bring your knit or crochet project and we will help you through it. You can drop in and learn to knit or crochet. Each time you drop in you pay a fee of $15 or you can purchase the project class in a monthly block. Call 360/993-2200 for more details, or to sign up over the phone. The class size will be limited to 6 – 8 people, and if it gets larger another teacher will be added. One project at a time please. You receive 10% off of any supplies for your project.
I’ve had a chance to spend some time visiting with the owner Nicholette and she is great. What a cool place she’s created for the creative (and those looking to get creative). Why not stop in and check this place out. Heck, when you finish you can swing by Ice Cream Renaissance for a treat! 🙂
