Our New Crafted Spaces Studio and Store

This is the first post since the summer and I am sorry if it seemed like we may have disappeared. However, if you have been following our  Facebook and Instragram then you have an idea of what we have been up to and of course the title of this post may have given it away. After such a long hiatus, it seems only fitting that our new studio and shop gets a little spotlight.

Crafted Spaces | 13 Collier Street, Barrie, Ontario
I am happy to announce that we have opened our new studio and store at 13 Collier Street, Barrie, Ontario. The new location was opened on September 8, 2014 and is bright, spacious and conveniently located in downtown Barrie. Our main studio area is where most of the action happens, but there is an additional room of handmade goodies, an office and tons of storage. We even have a cute little kitchen and a private washroom in the unit.

My husband Don and I have spent the past few months getting things together and are very excited. I have also been hard at work creating new classes and workshops and we are curating a great selection of sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting and craft books. In the coming months we will also have a selection of sewing and craft kits available; as well as a beautiful selection of handmade accessories, home decor items and other gift items from Canadian designers and artisans.

We jumped at the opportunity to move into this spacious and bright new location. We hope that the new location will be more accessible to our students and it will provide us with an opportunity to host a wider range of classes and workshops. We have introduced several knitting classes and hope to have more new classes and workshops being taught by myself and other instructors.

I have really enjoyed working from my home studio over the years. It has provided me with an opportunity to be close to my boys and to stay at home with my little guy, who started JK in September. Some of the larger group classes and some textile dye workshops will continue to be held at my home studio in Shanty Bay, Ontario.

The transition to the new studio has been great and I hope you will love it as much as we do. There are still a few small things left to do, but the new space has been well received by our students and customers. The new locations has lots of street parking and is easy to access. There is more square footage; which translates into comfortable sessions. There are also classes and workshops available throughout the day, evenings and weekends.

We also invite you to join us at our open "Sew and Craft" which takes place on alternate Sundays from 2:00pm to 4:00pm. My husband Don (GSM Beats Inc.) is also teaching guitar lessons from the private music lesson room at the studio. We also invite other creatives to join us to teach a class or workshop or to sell their handmade designs in the shop.

For more information about our location, hours and updates on our classes and workshops connect with us on Facebook and Instagram.
