Patti Gilstrap and Seryn Potter, the designers of the hip locally produced Flirt label, opened this 2,000-square-foot sprawling space to be a home for “home to all things creative,” says Potter. The multiuse area houses a room for sewing classes and a design studio in the back where the Flirt label is manufactured. Crafters looking for guidance can book private lessons (Thu–Sat by appointment; $45 an hour). If you prefer to work leisurely on a long-term project, the weekly open studio time ($10 an hour, by appointment only) gives you access to a sewing machine and accessories, and a knowledgeable person always on hand to answer questions.
