Sometimes you just need that "me" time... And what better place to unwind and relax than in a bright open space surrounded by all things crafty, creative, and colorful?
Bring along your things (and maybe some good gossip) and enjoy the company of others while working on your projects.
Our Janome and Babylock machines (*sewing machines, serger, embroidery, or long-arm) will be at your leisure along with our cutting tables, small tools (because who has time to remember to bring a seam gauge?!) and professional irons.
Our studio is open and waiting for you whenever you're ready. ;-)
