Pick Your own project (PYOP)

Our Pick Your Own Project philosophy is simple: 


  1. we offer a wide range of projects (see below)
  2. you pick one that interest you
  3. you pick an Open Studio Date (or dates) that work for you (we have 6-8 dates per month)
  4. we supply all materials and show you how to make your chosen project, complete with sewing machine lessons (as applicable)


We have a LOOOONG list of choices so we've broken it down into 6 categories.  See more below.


PLEASE NOTE: you need to pick a project and an Open Studio Date separately (so 2 items in your cart) before you check out.  The cost for the open studio date is built into the project cost but we won't know when you want to come without it.


Open Studio Dates for March:  

  • evenings (7 to 10 PM) - March  4, 9, 13, 24, 25 or 30 
  • daytime, weekend (1 to 4 PM) - March 28


Open Studio Dates for April:  

  • evenings (7 to 10 PM) - April 1, 6, 9, 14, 20, 23, 28
  • daytime, weekend (1 to 4 PM) - April 26
