The Makehouse is Moving – October 2017

Vintage moving truck filled with furniture

We are thrilled to announce that The Makehouse will be re-locating to the Douglas Shopping Centre (just behind Lifestyle Markets) this October!

You might have heard the news that our block of Fort Street is going to be re-developed in the new year. Well, the rumours are true and we’ve taken this as an opportunity to offer an enhanced customer experience. Our new location will offer more space for both retail and classroom, beautiful (and ample) natural light, an outdoor patio area and free customer parking!

We will also be launching a member-based sewing studio, which will be separate from our teaching area. More details about this new feature are coming soon! We welcome your suggestions in regards to equipment and tools you would like to see in the work room. Please email jenny (@) themakehouse.ca or call 778-430-MAKE (6253).

All scheduled workshops and courses beyond October will be located at Unit #400 -2950 Douglas Street. It will be business as usual at 833 1/2 Fort Street until the end of September.

You can stay up to date via our newsletter and social media outlets, or come on by the shop and talk to us, the good old fashioned way!
