About the Stitchen Den
Our Knowledgeable Staff Welcomes You!
The Stitchin’ Den staff enjoys having everyone stop and visit us in the shop. We have a lot of room to sit and chat while working on our favorite projects. We have created a cozy safe community of people enjoying each other, fiber, color and a moment to stop and catch your breath.
Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park are perfect destinations for your travels within this country. The weather is warm and all of the flowers are exploding with color. The elk are wandering around town.
Estes is small enough making most shops and restaurants within walking distance from your hotel or campground. The hiking, fly fishing, golfing, horseback riding and camping are fabulous.
Our shop has space for all of its wonderful stitchery charts, canvases, fibers, books and classes. The needlework area even has its own table for picking fibers or working on a project.
About the Stitchin’ Den
If someone 10 years ago would have told me I would be a fiberholic and own a knitting and needlework shop, I would have laughed in their face. I had been a Registered Nurse for 29 years, a profession I loved, but I wanted to do something different. So I went back to college and got a business degree and decided to open The Stitchin’ Den in May of 2000 to fill a niche in Estes Park, Colorado.
Now I’ve owned The Stitchin’ Den for nine years. I have always been in Estes Park, but I am in my fourth location. It is true the third time is the charm. I am located at the Courtyard shops amidst beautiful trees, waterfalls, birds, a trout pond and a cozy deck. True knit and stitch nirvana.
This business is my love and my passion. All the fibers used in knitting, cross stitch and needlepoint are extraordinary. My customers inspire me everyday with their creativity, sense of design and choice of fibers.
The Stitchin’ Den is all about you and fueling the genteel arts of knitting, crochet, needlepoint and cross stitch. Everyone coming to the shop enhances it in some way. Customers share their ideas, projects and stories about their craft. Staff with their support for the shop and everyone coming into browse or just sit and work on their project.
My web site will show you what is new and exciting at The Stitchin’ Den. It will provide all who visit with an opportunity to learn and be inspired. Our Creative Camps are always new, exciting and an oasis of fun and learning in all of our busy lives.
Attending a Creative Camp in a luxurious mountain setting will provide decadence while at the same time providing instruction in techniques in knitting, needlework, ribbon embroidery and cross stitch.
The newsletter will keep you informed about great events happening at The Den and surrounding areas, spotlight new fibers and offer free instruction on patterns and stitches. If you love to shop (and who doesn’t?), check out the knitting, needlework and cross stitch areas for items you can buy from our fiber boutiques.
Thanks you for visiting. Kick your shoes off, pour a cup of tea and enjoy!!
