Spirt Cafe

The Spirit Cafe is located inside The Stitchin' Den and is expanding for the summer.  Check out the great spots for hanging with your friends, sipping coffee or tea and working on your favorite project.  

The Courtyard Shops are probably the best kept secret in Estes Park.  It is just off of Elkhorn making it an easy side trip if members of your family or group want to shop in different parts of town.  It is just behind Bond Park where many of the festivals and art shows are held all summer long.  Visit the shops and wonder throughout the courtyard.  It is shady, quiet and surronded by trees, waterfalls and ponds filled with trout.  Grab a beverage from The Spirit Cafe or eat at The Vega restuarant where you can sit on top of the building and experience the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and town.
Weellll!!!  Check out Sticks and Strings.  We meet the second and fourth Monday of every month from 500PM until 700PM.  It is a spectacular time to be in Estes Park, Colorado.  Remember anytime can be girlfriend time.  The Stitchin' Den has room for everyone.

This Marilyn Mueller class will be taught in September.  This hat is Marilyn's own design and teaches Fair Isle knitting and design.

Summer has arrived.  Escape the heat in the lower elevations and experience Estes Park and all it has to offer.  Start out the summer with some "me" time.  Our Summer and Fall Class list is ready to go.  New ideas, techniques and fibers all geared towards our busy lives and busy schedules.  Check out our great line up of instructors.  What better way to spend the summer, but with some time learning new things.

Marilyn Mueller is an Estes Park local who has really impacted the staff at The Stitchin' Den.  Her sense of color, style and design is truely inspiring.  She gives a sense of fun and adventure to all of her projects.  

Beginning in September, Mariyn will begin teaching at the shop. 
The Stitchin' Den staff enjoys having everyone stop and visit us in the shop. We have alot 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 restraunts 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.
