Welcome to Home Ec. Workshop

Iowa City’s natural fiber, fabric, yarn, and craft supply shop

Ours is an inspiring and supportive environment filled with great people, irresistible yarn, colorful modern and vintage-inspired fabric, new and vintage buttons, thread, knitting and sewing patterns, books, magazines, knitting needles, crochet hooks, sewing notions, trims, spinning and felting fibers.

Home Ec. features a workshop space for sewing projects and a community “living room” where people can spend time together, show their work, chat, knit, crochet, spin or stitch in good company.

We offer an array of classes as well as private lessons for those that want to learn a new skill or get help starting or finishing a project. We also specialize in birthday parties for kids or adults and baby showers involving sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery, screenprinting or whatever you’d like to do.
