About


Welcome to Home Ec. Workshop, Iowa and Iowa City’s natural fiber fabric, yarn and craft supply shop with an espresso, tea and Italian soda bar featuring our famous cookies and homemade baked goods.  

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 and edible treats.

Home Ec. features a workshop space for sewing projects and a community “living room” where people can spend time together, show their work, chat, drink coffee, eat a cookie, and 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.
