There is one classroom on the second floor that lends itself to be a great sewing/quilting workshop room. The room is bright, there are lots of outlets at table height for the sewing machines. I've worked with the team this summer to make this a comfortable room to hold sewing workshops. They painted, gathered and made tables from the surplus in the basement. I am quite impressed with their enthusiasm, excitement and energy. It's contagious.
At the grand opening of the Ville, there were lots of non-sewer visitors to the Sewing Room. They all want to learn to sew. I can tell that beginner classes will be in high demand at first.

The Sewing Room is ready to hold workshops in now. The executive director Jeff, is ready to take bookings. Ph: 506-472-7799. I hope his phone rings off the hook.
Although the room is ready, there are a few things that would make it just a little better. I'll list the items that are needed just in case you can help. Of course, used items are welcome.
1 - Auto-off Iron
1 electric tea kettle
2 medium size cutting mats
