We are a textile maker space.
Both desire and need exists for a space that fosters a sewing community, offers open studio time with mentors available to work through design and production of an outfit or piece, provide applicable skill building classes, and build a supportive environment to share skills and tricks, as well as stories.
We created an environment that teaches basic skills to those interested in extended the life of their wardrobe, alter or revision pieces that no longer work, and create new pieces that express your own style and personality. So you know how to sew? Learn more advanced skills, try a project that intimidates you, and find community here at the Productivity Parlour
Our space is welcoming to those from all walks of life. To that end, we work hard to meet the needs of those that participate in drag or cosplay and desire to create a specific vision, we provide consultation and support in building what you are looking to achieve. Our space provides a safe and welcoming environment to our transgendered community to build a wardrobe that is expressive of their identity.
Come join us!
