    • If you need something rushed let me know, and we can work it out with a small RUSH fee!

    • 2-3 week turnaround – will need to be able to come back for fittings if needed

Open Sew –

Come to the studio to rent my sewing machine for $5/hr or if you have questions or need assistance it’s $10/hr.

If you need to use the serger or coverstitch machines you will need to know how to use them before coming or book a private lesson on it first. Those are $10/hr to rent.

You will need to bring your own needles and thread for the machines but you will have access to my ironing board/cutting stations.
