Sew by the Hour

Don’t have a sewing machine? No space to cut out your project? Here at Fabrications we have everything you need to work on and complete your sewing project.

Our sewing studio is available during business hours whenever a class is not scheduled. Check our calendar to view the class schedule. Please phone us as 613-854-9091, email or drop in during store hours to reserve your time.

The sewing studio is open to current and former students and is independent, unsupervised project time, and an opportunity to use our machines, cutting table and supplies. You must know how to use a sewing machine or serger to sew by the hour!

Our machine rental policies are as follows:

  1. In order to use the sergers and coverstitch machine, customers must show their 'Serger Certified' card.
  2. Customers who take the Serger Basics 1 class will automatically earn a ‘Serger Certified’ card (and a Sewing Club card worth 10 hours of sewing studio time).
  3. Customers who have previously taken the Serger Basics 1 class may contact the store to obtain their card.

These policies are subject to change without notice. These policies are in place to ensure the safety of our customers and the long life of the machines. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Machine rental costs are listed below; there is no charge to use our cutting tables and tools.
