Textile Makerspace

Main content start


The Textile Makerspace provides a drop-in space for Stanford students, faculty, and staff to sew, knit, crochet, weave, and do other hands-on creative work with textiles. We have an assortment of sewing machines (including a serger/coverstitch), rotary cutters, patterns, and fabric and yarn you can use for free. We also have knitting machines, a standing (counterbalance) loom, an embroidery machine, and embroidery digitization software. If you'd like to work on your project at home, we have take-home crochet hooks, knitting needles, simple looms, and mending kits.

How to Access

  1. The building is usually open (without card access) during regular business hours.
  2. Come by during any of our open hours (which often change, check our website to be sure) to access the Textile Makerspace on the second floor.
