Thanks again for being part of the blog, and for making Whipstitch a fun and dynamic place to be!  I have loved carving out this little corner of the crafty internet, and can’t wait to share with you whatever it is that’s coming along next.

Whipstitch Sewing Studio

In November of 2015, I moved my video and photo studio out of my house and to an office space north of Atlanta.  Primarily designed for shooting online video classes, I open the space occasionally to offer in-person classes and sewing workshops.  You can see all the current class options here, and find directions to the studio below!  (Please note, to avoid confusion: the studio is a professional workspace and does not keep regular public hours.  Outside of scheduled classes, please contact me before arriving!)


Mobile mapping software can be confusing for this address.  Please look for the RED BRICK BUILDING on Carpenter Drive, NOT the grey building that backs up to it.  These two have parking lots that back up to one another, and their street numbers are similar, but the entrances are on opposite ends of the circle of Carpenter Drive and do not connect.

From I-285, take the Roswell Rd exit and head north, outside the perimeter.  At the very first street, immediately after turning on to Roswell Rd, take a RIGHT on Carpenter Drive, past the giant diamond–careful, it comes up quickly!*  The second left is a driveway that enters the parking lot at 270 Carpenter Drive.  We are in a red brick office building on the fifth floor.  There is ample parking and an elevator for your convenience!

*(If you miss the first entrance, simply continue to the NEXT right turn, just past the Gyro Bros and wine shop, which is the other end of Carpenter Drive.  Take this all the way around the curve until you see the red brick building on your right, and enter the parking lot from there.)
