Modern Domestic is your sewing studio away from home; your work space without distraction, clutter, or the usual interruptions of daily life. We have created two spacious and well-lit classrooms furnished with Bernina sewing machines & sergers, extra large cutting tables and pressing equipment. Open Sewing is for adults aged 18 and older. While we have them and love them, we appreciate if you leave your small children at home, as the studio is full of hot and sharp objects and other sewists hard at work.
Each customer checks out a Modern Domestic toolkit which includes cutting, marking and measuring tools. Installing an invisible zipper or piping? Want to make a perfect one-step buttonhole? We have every imaginable presser foot for you to check out and use. Our knowledgable staff can offer you support and guidance on a project as well as assist you in threading and general use of the machines.
Open sewists should possess the understanding of basic sewing skills and machine functions. If you need help getting to this point, start with a Sew Basic or Learn to Sew level class and you will be ready for independent studio time.
You are welcome to drop in and sew all open hours unless there are 2 classes scheduled (please call or check online schedule). Sewing is $8/hour with a one hour minimum. Time after that is calculated in 15min increments.
