Up-Stitch has a wonderful network of friends who support our mission in a number of  

   ways: participating in sorting parties, spreading the word, teaching workshops or

   donating fabric and yarn. Our friends have many talents of their own that we’re

   happy to highlight here!

  Old Bag Bags

  Linda Dunn has volunteered on a regular basis to help sort through our wonderful,   

  and often wacky, pile of donations. She and her partner Claudia Hartmark make

  amazing bags (sometimes with Up-Stitch fabric!) under the name “Old Bag Bags.”

  Old Bag Bags will be at the Collar City Craft Fest

      at The Arts Center of the Capital Region

      265 River Street, Troy, NY 12180 (518) 273-0552

   In addition to helping us out at sorting parties the multi-talented Maureen Feeney has   

   taught a quilted box workshop, a mug rug workshop, a chevron crochet workshop and

   done cross stitch with kids!

   Maureen stitches bags, pillows and gorgeous quilts under the name Maureen’s

   Keepsakes. You can see her projects on her Facebook page or reach her at:
