Come celebrate spring with Stitch DC

The weather is beautiful.  65 degrees and sunny.  So why not knit or sew some spring items.  We have previously scheduled classes  such as our Kids Can Sew and Beginner Knitting and Sewing classes.  But I decided to do one more FREE WORKSHOP ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.  BOTH DAYS FROM 1-5, come in to learn how to make your own Eastern Market Knitted Bag.  You'll be the talk of the Market for being so green and so crafty and so fashionable.  Also Barracks Row is featuring a "PETTING ZOO" for musicians.  So no llamas or goats but what about piccolos and clarinets?  Come by on saturday and sunday, stroll the avenue, knit with us and enjoy some fun family events.
