Sew. Make. Celebrate.

Building skills and community in the Comox Valley since 2015

Welcome to The Spool, a sewing studio and store that seeks to make slow fashion inclusive, caring and fun! We love teaching, as well as curating a gorgeous selection of fabrics, indie patterns, tools and books to make your sewing journey a dream.

Our creative daughter has gotten so much more from The Spool in the past five years than we imagined. Not only has she learned the fundamentals of sewing, she has now even experimented with drafting her own patterns. Her confidence is higher, she has reason to do math, and most importantly she has a village of friendly faces that she can share her passions with. I cherish the quilt she made me and I am grateful every time I see her sewing. It delights her.

My sewing journey began less than two years ago, I had no previous experience sewing and in the first class of Learn to Sew, I tentatively told Nicole I wanted to sew clothes believing it to be a long-term goal. The adults’ classes at The Spool allowed me to build skills at my own pace and fit within my busy schedule. Within a month of Learn to Sew I’d completed my first garment class and my wardrobe is now full of me mades which I proudly wear everyday. The Spool is so much more than just classes or just a fabric store, it’s a community of passionate, supportive people who are all here to cheer you on in your sewing journey.
