What a fantastic little store - tucked away behind Anchored Ship Coffee Bar - a great selection of cool fabrics for the modern stitcher! What I found the most interesting was the Open Studio space.Tucked in a back room was a equipment filled sewing space available for rent. The web site describes it as;

"The basics:
At make*do*mend at Drygoods Design, we are dedicated to providing a safe, fun and thoughtful place for folks to learn, make, do and enjoy the company of others.  Many of us become intimidated when it comes to making things but never fear, we’re here to take out the guesswork and the pretention! We also believe that the better tools you have, the more enjoyable sewing and crafting can be. We supply all the tools you need and the best possible at affordable prices. Don’t miss out on our studio sales - save big every few months when we refresh our supplies and tools and put the gently used ones up for sale at a huge discount.

If the shop is open then so is make*do*mend! When you sign up for the hourly rate edition of make*do*mend, you can enjoy our world-class Bernina sewing machines, ironing tools, large cutting/project table, library and seek counsel from our qualified staff. With a valid photo ID you’ll get your own toolkit to use at your sewing station, in addition to all the communal tools.
