Awesome Austin: The Stitch Lab

>> Thursday, September 30, 2010


What a marvelous space! Several people suggested that I stop by the The Stitch Lab, and it didn't disappoint. It's a lovely space in a converted bungalow on South 1st Street (and easy walk from the river trail). The staff is lovely -- I arrived when they opened and they even offered me a cup of coffee. If I lived here, I would definitely spend time in this sweet spot. It looks like they have some great classes (including some bag making ones I'd love to take).


 Of course, I couldn't step in and then leave without buying some fabric. I haven't had a chance to photograph my purchases but I figured I could indulge since I was able to take a shuttle rather than pay for a cab to last night's lodging. As a small store, the fabric selection isn't enormous but it's incredibly well curated. They've picked great lines and parts of lines. If I had lots more money, I would have bought cuts of all sorts of fabrics that looked good together.
