Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to supply my own materials?
Yes. We currently do not have the inventory to allow students to use or buy materials from us.
I never used a sewing machine before, how do I learn?
We have very talented staff members to assist you in learning on how to use our machine. Please contact us here in order to arrange an appointment to get a project started.
I have experience with sewing machines. Can I just come in and use it?
Yes. Please advice a member of our staff on your project before getting started. Most of the machines are top load sewing machines but we do have an older side loading one. Not all bobbins fit the same machines. Also, it is advised to read the manual before using the machine to reduce the chance of injury to either yourself, other makers in the Makerspace, or the machine.

Brother SE400 (embroidery-sewing hybrid)
