Textiles

2016 Textiles Program

The 2016 Textiles program has added a monthly Sewing 101 Boot camp to the program! Which also includes supporting leather working along with our monthly lab.

Supplies and machines

The textiles area is part of the classroom. It is a reconfigurable space with a variety of tables and chairs including two large rolling cut tables and large rotary matts.  We have a large variety of fabrics and notions that are available for member use.

Training and certification

While none of the sewing machines require certification we highly recommend you take a class or get help with the Pfaff walking foot machine and Juki serger if you have never used these types of machines before.

Leatherworking

We have a basic complement of leather hand leather working tools to go along with our Pfaff walking-foot heavy duty leather sewing machine. 

Silks Screening

All the basic tools for both traditional and non traditional silk screening are available. We often use laser cut mylar stencils to create the resist for quick silk screen runs.
