What is a lockstitch? It’s the name of the basic straight stitch every home sewing machine makes! The top thread gets “locked” in the fabric with the bobbin thread, making the stitch.
Our mission is to be Thunder Bay and Northwestern Ontario’s hub for the home and professional sewists, crafters, and textile artisans of our region. To foster an environment for learning and skill development, respect for the art and science of sewing and textiles, and to encourage expression through fashion. With our quality products and a DIY ethic, you can skip the sweat shops to build your wardrobe with an emphasis on natural and environmentally friendly fabrics.
