Welcome

STITCHES Expo at Home is the virtual version of our destination shows. Now, all that energy and excitement comes to you at Home.

Never been to STITCHES? This is the time! It’s a Maker’s dream—60+ classes, a Market, special events, presentations, and other features.

First, there are THE STITCHES Classes. Polish a favorite technique, build your confidence, maybe try something entirely new. We have classes for everyone! Choose from knitting, weaving, and crochet. Textile fans will find Sashiko and folk embroidery, hand and machine stitching, garment design and construction. Explore color, pattern, fit, and more.

Each workshop is served up in one or two 2-hour Zoom class sessions. With a limited size, you always have a front-row seat and end each day in your own bed. That’s why we call it STITCHES Expo at Home!

Then there is THE STITCHES Market. You’ve been craving it, and our exhibitors are ready! Each will host individual half-hour spots to show what they’ve been up to, what they have, and what’s hot. Market access is free to students; Market Tickets are also available for purchase.

And there is More. Sponsor presentations and special demos. Lots of action, lots of fun! And don’t forget the FREE STITCHES PJ PARTY on Saturday night!

When our creative communities go virtual, STITCHES Expo at Home is here!

Note: All times listed are Central Daylight Time.

Access to the Dashboard will remain available through Sunday, June 21, 2021 at 11:59 CDT. This includes access to vendor information, and Sponsor presentation and Teacher Feature videos.
