Open Studio

What to Expect

Open studio is an independent work time (without instructors) where anyone with basic to advanced skills can come with friends to work on a project, get advice from fellow students, have fun and sew! Don’t want to cut out your fabric on the floor or a small table at home? Come and use our large cutting tables. Is your machine not working? Come and use ours! However if you need instruction on your project, you will need to sign up for a formal class or an Assisted Open Studio Workshop

Open Studio is $10/hour


In order to attend open studio you must have taken a class or lesson at Cut & Sew Studio or you will need to sign up for a short “certification” lesson so that you will be comfortable using the equipment available to you.  You may also choose to come to the Assisted Open Studio Workshop so that someone will be there for your questions (machine or project related!)   The serger is  available for use on a first come first serve basis unless you request to reserve it on a particular day for open studio.  If you are not totally comfortable with the serger (meaning you understand how to use and thread it) you will need to take a certification lesson on using it and threading it so that you are prepared for open studio use.  The embroidery machine is not currently available for use in open studio, please contact the studio for private instruction if you would like to use it for a project. To find out about attending a certification class, please email or call the studio.


You may come to open studio on a drop in basis – but you are welcome to call in advance to make sure space is available. If you want to use the serger specifically please reserve in advance, otherwise it is available on a first come first serve basis. You may pay by the hour for the time you stay at the studio, or you can purchase open studio hours in advance at a discount HERE. Please check back here regularly to see upcoming open studio hours:
