COVID-19 Shop Update

It’s time for a shop update! 

Update September 2021:

Expanded store hours: Both locations are now OPEN Tuesday-Sunday from 10am-5pm.

According to Multnomah County, indoor mask mandates are reinstated as of August 13. As we diligently and thoughtfully follow county and state guidelines, masks are required for all guests inside Modern Domestic stores Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm.

Thank you for taking this past year in stride and following safety guidelines in order to keep each other healthy! We ask that all guests be mindful before visiting a public space – stay home if you are feeling sick and wash hands regularly. We will continue to follow national, state, and county direction and will update you to any changes with store policies in accordance with safety guidelines.

Stay heathy,
MD Team

Both locations are open Tuesday – Sunday 10AM–5PM

Visit both locations for retail, BERNINA sewing machine demo, and machine service, and online order pickup. We have implemented a few guidelines to help our community operate safely and give you peace of mind. Please read these safety guidelines to keep everyone heathy and safe!

    Just last week, I was looking at your website at some of your summer camp offerings which my daughter has participated in in the past. Now I can’t find them on your site. I see the note that all classes have been postponed due to the coronavirus. Do you anticipate holding the summer camps or fully cancelling them? Thank you.

    Hi Ashley,

    Thanks so much for your question. At this time it is in the best interest of teachers and students to cancel upcoming kids camps. However, we will announce classes and camps as soon as they are back up and running!

    I have attempted to order online several times this week. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful. Many products turned out to be “out of stock” which makes it more difficult to choose color combos when you are planning a new project. Just fyi. Laura

    What about a scholarship program, customers buy in to support a child’s class tuition when that is feasible( on line or in small classes with physical distancing and masks) thus supporting the community? Customers can donate machines and fabric. Kids can design their own masks etc.?????

    Hi Laura, Thanks for reaching out! We are implementing a way to receive an email notification when an item is out of stock. Until then, feel free to email us with the item you are looking for specifically and we will do our best to give you a timeline when it will be back in stock.
