Answers to Your FAQs

Can I bring my own food and beverages to The Craft Factory?

Absolutely! We do not typically have food available, so we certainly permit you to bring your own. While we don’t recommend that you bring full meals for practical reasons (you’re here primarily to craft and create, not dine), we encourage you to bring snacks, hors d’oeuvres, and other foods that are easy to transport and eat while you work. We also allow you to bring beer and wine for your private parties in which all participants are age 21 or older.

Do I need to be an artist to come to an event at The Craft Factory?

Not in the least! We love to work with crafters of all skill levels—and those who may have never crafted before—to create fun projects that they can be proud of. Our crafts are self-guided, but Karen and her friendly team in our craft studio are always available to help and answer questions as you go. Don’t think you’re creative? No worries! We’ll help you discover what you can do.

Do I need to bring any tools or supplies to craft as a walk-in?

Nope. 😊 We have everything you need available right here at The Craft Factory. We invite you to help yourself to paints, rulers, masking tape, stencils, hot glue guns, tracing paper, or whatever you need to make your perfect craft or home décor item, like our decorative wood signs. (Craft pricing ranges from $17-$55, with most adult crafts priced at $26.50, including supplies.)

Went here with my mom and had an awesome time crafting and bonding together. No hustle and bustle of the outside world. The girls working were so helpful as it took almost an hour just to figure out what we wanted to create. So many decisions and choices! Great little crafting studio. We will definitely be back!
