Open Lab – Come Sew in Our Studio


We all love to sew and create, but who has the space to do at home.

Now your can bring your projects to the M Avery Designs Studio and work on them here in a semi-supervised environment, with all the right tools at your disposal.

Rates are paid to instructor at the end of your time at the studio:

Up to 1 Hour $10

Up to 2 Hours $20

Up to 3 Hours $30

Up to 4 Hours $40

Open lab is not a lesson, but you are welcome to ask questions if the instructor working is not already teaching a class or s/he indicates it’s okay.

Open lab time is your chance to rent out workspace here at our studio to work on any sewing or crafting project you might have. Open lab time is available if an instructor is in the studio working and/or teaching a class.


Check our adult & kids class schedules by clicking the pages from our drop down menus above. If it looks like we have classes around the same time you were thinking of coming in, the studio space is at your disposal.

Please send an email to reserve space during the time you were thinking of coming in. We’ll get right back to you with availability.
