Urban Threads Studio

Who we are!

The world around us is changing quickly but our need for communal gatherings in a nurturing and creative setting is not. Urban Threads Studio is a D-I-Y (do it yourself) collaborative studio that hopes to introduce you to the wonderful ancient craft of sewing and textile art with a 21st century twist. You may just want to rediscover a skill you learned as a child, experience the calm energy of a day of crafting or pick up an altogether new or more advanced skill like dyeing or felting. Our program hopes to accomplish all that and much more. Join us in the adventure and: register for a workshop, celebrate a next birthday with a textile art party, sign up the kids for summer camp, ask us about after school programs or enroll your youth organization in our 2013 community project.

If you need a personal consultation please call our Artistic Director, Michelle Santoro, at (708) 717-3740
