Statement on the current situation with COVID-19

To all our sewing and crafty friends:

We have been carefully following the developing news re the COVID-19 outbreak in BC and all over the world. We kept our store open for as long as possible but would now like to inform you that The Makehouse is now closed for in-person shopping.

We are offering curbside pick-up and local delivery options. You can place your order with us by phone (778-430-6253 ), via email jenny@themakehouse.ca or through our website www.themakehouse.ca and select “Store Pick-up“ (more details below).

All classes that were scheduled for March and early April are cancelled until further notice. We will be in touch with those of you that are registered with further information. All students will be offered a credit and will have first pick of dates on seats when we resume.

All social sewing events will also be cancelled until further notice. We are always available via phone or internet to help you with any sewing questions you may have while you working from home during this time.

Please know that we are doing all we can to keep our staff and customers safe. Frequent disinfecting and social distancing have become part of our daily routine, as it has for all of us united against this latest threat to our health and well-being. We will, of course, follow the directives and guidelines from the CDC in determining how we go forward and will keep you informed as soon as there are changes of any kind.

My staff and I are so grateful for your continued support and good wishes (and maintaining a sense of humour) during this unsettling time. Now more than ever we need the meditative benefits of sewing and needle arts in our lives.

The Makehouse is committed to being there for you in any way we possibly can. Thank you for supporting us and other small businesses, either directly or through our websites. We all hope that the virus will be contained quickly and that most Canadians will emerge healthy.

Thank you and stay safe. 

Jenny and all of our team at The Makehouse

Tuesday - Saturday 10am-4pm

Curbside Pick-Up & Home Delivery Notice

Curbside pick-up is available during all current business hours.

Please select “Store Pick-up“ or let us know by phone that you would like to come by. We will contact you via phone or email when your order is ready.

Park in the upper level of the Douglas Centre Parking lot and call at 778-430-6253. One of our team will come out and place your order in the boot of your car.

We will contact you once you've placed your order to check on any special notes if you would like us to deliver your order. 


  • My Husqvarna Diamond Deluxe has seized up and is inoperable. Does Bill Murray, the Sewing Guy, pick up and drop off repairs at your place. If so, what days does he do so? Would I be able to drop my machine off for him to repair? I have tried calling his business number and his message box is full, therefore, unable to contact him. Many thanks as I am desperate without my sewing machine.

  • Are you kids summer camps on?

  • Do you have interfacing?Do you have material that you can make tea towels out of?

  • Do you have quilt batting for sale? And do you deliver to broadleaf?

  • I was wondering if you know where my wife and I might be able to purchase cloth face masks?
