We now have our own studio! New Life In Christ Church, located at 1380 Ammons Street in Lakewood (Colfax and Wadsworth area) has been home to the West campus of Denver Street School for over 20 years. They also house Mean Street Ministries, a food bank, and a cold weather shelter for homeless families. With all the activity in this building, Pastor Jack La Pietra and operations manager Chris Daumer found a place for Butterfly Stitchers to fit in and put down roots. We are very grateful for their gracious attitudes, and we're ecstatic about our space in room 201 and 202. We are calling it affectionately Studio 202.
While the room is not huge, we are finding ways to fit all the craft and art supplies, and getting ready for our new After School Art Program (ASAP) and open studio times every other Friday. We will be hosting a grand opening and open house as soon as everything is ready to go. Keep checking back for pictures, new information, and a date for the Grand Opening.
New Classes for 2018
Watch the calendar for new listings coming soon in 2018. Currently we have ongoing Quilting class on Tuesday nights, and Knit and crochet group on Thursday night. We will be adding more classes in January.
One class we will be offering is Jewelry Workshop. You will be able to come in and use all the tools and equipment and large supply of beads and charms. Two hours in the studio costs only $10, and you take away as many items as you can make and complete in those two hours! Jewelry workshop will be on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 4:30, starting on the 17th of January. Depending on popularity, this may be an ongoing workshop!

Another class coming soon is Acrylic Painting on Canvas. This will be a four week course where we will explore color theory, techniques and each week students will paint a canvas they can take home. The cost is $25 per session, so $100 for all four sessions. Prepayment will save 10% on the registration fee, so you can get all four sessions for only $90!
The painting class will start January 17th, and start at 6 pm every Wednesday for four weeks.
