When we started the DC Threads program in October 2008, our long-term dream was to have a permanent space where we could hold the lounge and other sewing programs and classes. We are finally in a position to make that happen. Over the past year, Allison has been growing a small teaching business, the Bits of Thread Sewing Studio. This November, she moved into a new space in Adams Morgan that will be large enough to host the DC Threads lounge, starting in January.
The move is bittersweet for us– we are thrilled to finally have a space where we can have all of the supplies and equipment we need in one place, but we will be very sad to leave North Michigan Park, which has been so good to us. We hope you understand our decision, and we hope to see you at the new lounge location. If any of you would like to continue a sewing program or sewing circle at North Michigan Park, we invite you to contact us for more information.
And yes, the DC Threads lounge will remain FREE, and will still be held once a month as before, run by volunteer coaches. The next lounge will be Saturday, January 8, 2011 — more details are coming shortly!
Again, thank you all –especially the staff at North Michigan Park, and our volunteers– for helping us making this such a successful program. The move brings us many new possibilities which we are excited about, and we look forward to sharing them with you in the New Year. Please be in touch if you have any questions, and we hope to see you at a sewing lounge soon!
