Sweater Chop Shop - September 22

Are you looking for an inexpensive and empowering way to express yourself?  Maybe you would like to make personal and earth-conscious gifts for the upcoming holiday season?  Here is a way to be creative without prior knowledge.  Attend Crispina's Sweater Chop Shop!  The Chop Shop is taking place Saturday, September 22, 2012 at her studio, 40 Melville Street in Pittsfield.

Learn how to recycle discarded sweaters into a custom fit creation!  Pre-registration is required and class-size is limited.  This full day workshop (10am -5pm) is $160 and includes a delicious lunch.  Students end the class with a finished product to take home. The use of all tools and materials are provided.  No experience necessary!  We use basic hand sewing with large needles and yarn.  We will teach you every step.  Call or email with any questions or for details about off-site, corporate, and private group teaching.

Not sure you are interested in a full day workshop?  Come test the waters during our biweekly Stitching Open House!  Crispina will be welcoming people into her studio to learn a little bit more about what happens at workshops.  Try out some basic stitches, become familiar with the tools we will use, and get your hands on some yummy sweaters to see what the materials are like.  You can bring a project to work on but you don't need to bring anything at all to see what it is all about!  No registration needed.  Stitching Open Houses will take place on the first and third Tuesday of each month beginning on September 18, continuing through the end of the year.  Come by 5-6:30pm at the studio, 40 Melville Street, Pittsfield, in the former Notre Dame Church.
