  • Each family has what we call a “student record” which is basically a spreadsheet that organizes your payments and studio visits.  Your phone number/s are used along with the student’s name during sign in and out to signify what account you’re using for your studio visit.  Every time you purchase studio time or after school classes a link to your record is sent with the confirmation.  The links are good forever so you can check your account status at any time.  Check out this Sample Record.

  • First timers should take advantage of our current promotion, just $10 for a 90-minute class– That’s %75 off! Offer for brand new sewers only, not valid during Camp. Click here to go to the deal!

  • Drop in open studio is pay as you go or purchase larger packages for an hourly discount.  Hours never expire and can be used for all classes and camps!  Hours are applied to your family account and may be used to bring friends as well.  Time is deducted in the exact amount used, down to the second, no rounding.

  • Scheduling open studio is unnecessary unless we’re running a Camp Program, check the calendar, for Open studio simply drop in. 

  • For the After School Series you may purchase 4, 8, or 12 classes and attend the same day and time each week.  Classes that fall on camps or holidays will be scheduled the following week.

  • Open Studio and Camp programs operate the same way on the time system but we require pre-registration for camp and a minimum stay of 3 hours. Adults are encouraged to come during Open Studio while Kids rule our Camp programs.

  • Drop off recommended for all open studio and after school classes; however, waiting area with WiFi is available.

  • Students work at their own pace with individual instruction.  All open studio time is mixed ages often including adult sewers.

  • Recommended open studio time is 2 hours, the camp minimum is 3 hours.  Established students may be able to utilize shorter classes if needed.  There is no maximum, stay as long as you wish!

  • Parking provided in front of the main entrance, additional parking in the middle of the main lot and on North St.

  • We recommend sending kids with a snack or money for the vending machine [each item costs $1].
