Sew-by-the-hour

New for April 2022: Join us for free Drop-In Sit & Sew every Tuesday evening from 6-8 p.m.! Bring your own machine and whatever you're working on, or rent one of ours (details below) Call or email to book your spot, or drop-in by chance.

Don't own a sewing machine, can't get your old one working, or need more space than your dining room table? Come in to make 1 and sew-by-the-hour!

We have four Janome sewing machines, along with ironing stations, cutting table, and a variety of shared sewing tools in our bright, open studio space.

Sew-by-the-hour is also a great way to dip your toes in before you take the plunge and buy your own machine!

How it works:

  • Sew-by-the-hour is self-directed, meaning that while our knowledgeable staff are always nearby if you have a question, it is not a one-on-one sewing lesson. In order to rent a machine, you are required to have basic machine sewing knowledge or have taken our Sewing Machine Basics course.
  • Sew-by-the-hour is first-come, first-served, and subject to availability.

Rates:

  • $7/hour for use of sewing machine, ironing station, cutting table, etc.
  • $120 for an annual membership at make 1, which includes unlimited sew-by-the-hour use and 10% off all purchases of fabric, patterns and notions (not including classes)
