Stitch Lounge interview

Head on over to the Smashing Darling blog to learn more about Stitch Lounge in San Francisco!

Interview: Melissa Alvarado of Stitch Lounge

Todays interview is with Melissa Alvarado one of the girls that started the Stitch Lounge in San Francisco. A very unique business that encourages customers to pick a project and just get started! We love that because that is what Smashing Darling is all about, letting your indie OUT! She also co-authored, with her friends and partners, Melissa and Hope, Sew Subversive and then Subversive Seamster. So if you are in the neighborhood, pop in and experience the lounge! These girls are always up to something fun!

Darling's in New Haven's PLAY weekly

Click here for full story!

With the expansive nature of the internet shrinking the world of commerce and growing it simultaneously, it's seems only natural that we head away from our metropolis and head North to find the masterminds behind the new social shopping website, Smashingdarling.com.

Over the Quinnipiac River Bridge and north on Route 9, you'll come to the quaint artist's community of Chester. Traveling down the windy road of Route 148, reducing your city speed to a more country-friendly pace, you'll find Mergirl, a custom clothing boutique in the stone building on Water Street.
