Come Use our Classroom  
Did you know that you can rent our classroom for the day…or a week? Our classroom has eight 6’ heavy duty tables and adjustable chairs on wheels, two large ironing stations with four irons, a 4’ x 8’ cutting table, a refrigerator and a microwave for your use. You can reserve the classroom for $10 per day per person. If you are interested in using our classroom or having a group sew day with your friends, just call or stop by the shop and talk to Connie or Maria about reserving the space. You and your group will also receive a Sew Day Discount.
If you do not want to reserve the space for sewing, you can always join the open group Sew-In days which are usually the last Friday and Saturday of the month and run from 8am - 8pm for $10 per day per person.  We have also added a Midweek Sit & Sew once a month on Wednesday. Check out the website calendar for exact dates.
