Supplies and machines

The textiles program has a modular design based in the reconfigurable space of Coworking. There is a variety of tables and chairs, including two large rolling cut tables and rotary mats.  We have a large variety of tools, fabrics and notions that are available for member use.

Training and certification

While the basic sewing machines don’t require certification, we do require that you take a class or get training to be certified to use the heavy duty Pfaff and Cowboy machines. The Juki Serger and the Janome Coverstitch machines both require certification or supervision.


We have a basic complement of leather hand-working tools to go along with our Pfaff walking foot heavy-duty leather sewing machine. This includes a really nice complement of Buckle Guy hardware, dies, and presses.


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