Originator of NYC’s first Stitch ’n Bitch group, this threadcentric depot offers sewing with sass. Besides offering scads of classes, co-owner, author and former Parsons instructor Elissa Meyrich stocks patterns for Minimalist pillows inspired by artist Sol Lewitt ($18), sewing machines (from $200) and magnetic-seam guides ($3). Stop in and learn how to make a leather clutch in one session ($95), a tote bag in two classes ($105), or take the “Crafty Accessories” class ($95) and make a belt, clutch purse and headband in one night.

I don't know why Elissa Meyrich is teaching people to sew. IF I WERE Elissa, I'ld get a personal assistant, whose hips are attached to a sewing factory, and make a ton of money. She is very talented, which may be why she scream at us peon seamtresses....
