Call us to set up a date for your next event. We’ll arrive with pre-cut kits for your choice of project, sewing machines for your guests, irons, and even tables! Your guests will leave with a new skill and a finished project.

Sewing parties are great for ages 7+ and all skill levels – we’ll design a project for you!

We can’t wait to sew (and party) with you!

Moving westward!!!

Eight years ago, Stitch Cleveland started as a crazy idea we had for a social sewing studio and blossomed into what it is today! We can hardly believe what it’s become. Thanks to you, we’ve created a family business that we are proud of and that has enabled us to feed our creativity and develop professionally at the same time. We cannot begin to thank you enough for your support and generosity over the years.
The time has come for us to move on from our traditional brick and mortar storefront and turn to a less traditional but perhaps more comfortable way to do business. We’ve decided that in order to continue to be at our peak creativity, we should close our storefront and continue our classes in our own home studios! We’re certain you’ll love the change. We have the same setup… Lots of sewing space, cutting tables & creative energy! Without the worries of parking and the busy intersection! We’re excited for you to see where we get creative and inspired and hope it inspires you, too!
Heidi will continue to teach kids after school classes and private lessons in her Westlake studio, which is conveniently located on Center Ridge near Crocker Park.
Megan will be concentrating on several design projects and releasing her own line of PDF sewing patterns! She will continue to teach private and small group lessons out of her home studio in Avon near Avon Commons.
If you are interested in a Birthday Party or Girl Scout event – call to discuss details! We have had so many fun and memorable parties with kids – it’s become one of our favorite stitchy things to do. We are still working out the details but are looking forward to introducing our new party and troop events very soon.
Our store in Lakewood will host its last classes during the week before Christmas. (last day will be December 23) We are excited about the changes ahead and hope to see you all in our studios! Please stay connected… We’ll remain active on Facebook, our website, and our email newsletter. You can still reach us via email and phone!

Learn to Sew in 2014

Is sewing on your list of resolutions for 2014??  Stop in and see how much fun we make sewing at Stitch.  We teach kids…and big kids, too!  Along with being fun, sewing is a very therapeutic life skill. (I know it helps me keep my sanity!)

Bring a friend and join us for  Sewing Happy Hour on first Fridays (free) and  Modern Patchwork Night on 2nd Fridays ($10)  each month.


These little seamsters are in our Thursday night Kids Sewing lessons, which have become very popular!  Their projects for January included this embellished pillow – they had lots of fun adding sequins to the caravan elephants! Next week they’ll be finishing up their skirts and having fun in our photo shoot!  Each week we review the basics so they get lots of practice  threading their machines, winding bobbins & changing stitches.  They are amazing!

Stay tuned for our weekly Sewing Lessons for Grown-ups schedule!  Lots of fun, small projects to perfect your tehniques.
