We’ve heard over the last couple years that people wanted a convenient location for a drop in sewing space, and we’ve finally got that for you! Located here in the mall with us, the classroom is available for workshops, or to drop in and use the space.

Some specs on the room:

-Seats 8 people comfortably, but can seat up to 14 as a lecture / meeting space
-Free wi-fi is available (password is posted in the classroom)
-Hot / cold water dispenser, with washrooms right across the hall
-Design wall (6′ high by 8′ wide) to help you with your creative projects
-Ironing board, iron, and folding cutting table
-Lots of power available, in convenient table height plugs (no crawling around)
-Well lit, with dimmable LED panels, for a lighting level that works for everyone.

The space is available on a first come first served basis for drop in sewing and crafting use. If you would like to book the room for exclusive use, we need at least one week’s notice to make sure we give notice to other users. Room fees are:

Meeting (830am-1030am): $5/session
Drop In Crafting (1030am – 530pm): Pay What You Can (suggested amount is $5-$10) (non-exclusive use)
Exclusive use of the room (930am-530pm): $40/day
After hours use (530pm-9pm): $15/hour (unless otherwise negotiated)

After hours use of the room requires staff supervision, as a requirement of Trail Bay Centre. Because the classroom does not have direct outside access, a staff member will need to stay around to lock and unlock outside doors.

To book the room, please call or email the store ahead of time.
