Renting the Craft Studio

Somehow we just seem to get more done when we get away from home and create with friends who share our passion.  That quiet productive hum carries the group along and the conversation ebbs and flows through a perfect sewing get-away.

Our well-lit craft studio awaits you and your sewing friends. And you can travel light. Bring your machine and your favorite cutting tool and the rest of the sewing gear will be here waiting for you.  We sew, knit, embroider, and hook ourselves, and so we have the needed gear.

“All you should have to do is to plug in….”

Our studio is a large room on the second floor with a view of the wetlands and good natural light.  We have furnished it with eight, L-shaped work stations, which create 16-square-feet of working space per person. We have two more work tables measuring two feet by eight feet. Each workstation is paired with a task chair chosen to support the back.
