Stitching Community Together
Accessible workshops sustain the people, community, and planet we love.
The Sew Op + Maker Space is a community sewing studio for beginners and advanced makers. It offers affordable workshops, sewing machines, tools, artist workspaces, leather working and supplies for purchase. You can take a class, teach a class or rent the space for a private sewing event for you and your friends .
We believe that by making sewing classes socially and financially accessible, we can grow a more dynamic and innovative web of community knowledge. The resources of the Sew Op + Maker Space are offered on a sliding scale and we encourage participants to consider their own budget and capacity when paying for use.
By teaching workshops that focus on up-cycling and mending, we can empower participants to make anything they may need with anything they have at hand. By fixing and recycling garments, we can keep materials out of landfills and save money from buying less clothing.
“I think community creativity can transform lives. A lot of people are shy and timid around creativity. Or they are nervous about criticism, so if you can get them in a space where there’s no judgement I think that can be really powerful.”
- Anna Miller, Sew-Op + Maker Space Founder
