Rentals are back! We are still operating at reduced capacity, with a maximum four renters at a time. Proof of vaccination and masks are mandatory. All rentals must be booked in advance. Sorry, no walk-ins! To book your time, just call the store at 902-423-0303 or send an email to All rentals must finish up by 4pm to give us time to sanitize for the next machine user. We’re so excited to welcome you back.

In order to rent a machine, you need to have taken one of our machine-based classes. We are always happy to help you get set up and help with bobbin winding and threading (don’t stress about threading!) but we do not offer private instruction during rentals. We offer a fun and supportive space for you to work independently on your own projects! Included in the cost of the rental the use of the cutting tables and irons, plus basic tools. Please do not bring fabric that is over 12oz in weight. So sorry, but we do not allow fun fur, stuffing pellets or other such messy materials in our workroom.

Rentals are $10 per hour. Or purchase a Workshop Regular Card! Prepay for 10 hours and get a reduced rate. $75 for 10 hours of Patch sewing!
