Come hang out and hem or do a little sewing! What a fun idea, especially if you don't know exactly how to do it. Bring a project, needle and thread and come sit a spell. We love the company.
Oh No! Did your machine have a hissy? No worries, we have a few great ones ready to go that you can come in and use for $15/4 weeks. We will even set you up with a handy-dandy punch card to keep track. We have cutting tables and space for you to work on projects and you can even ask questions if you like. There is usually a Trained Sewing Instructor, Seamstress or Quilter hanging around the shop to answer questions you might have. (This time is not sewing lessons however)
