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.
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.

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.

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
