Modern Domestic recently started carrying a small selection of fabrics, so they can be a one-stop shop for all you need to sew. Bolt is only a few blocks away, however, with its excellent collection of well-curated, fun and beautiful fabrics.
Examples of some of what you can make in one of the Modern Domestic classes: machine quilted potholders. Note the many different quilting patterns in these samples.

The quilting machine, with its frame, handles large quilts much more easily than a small desktop machine ever could. This machine allows you to "draw" with the quilting needle to create the pattern, rather than have to move the fabric of the quilt throug
Another example of what you could make at a sewing studio like Modern Domestic: fabric napkins, easy to do, with edges hemmed by a "serger."
Ever have the urge to serge? This is your machine. Getting a lesson on the serger is a much quicker route to becoming a sergeon than going to medical school would be. However, your stitching will be limited to fabric edges.

Haptic Lab makes quilt patterns for different city plans, including Portland.
