The Bodgery is open to the public twice a week for Open Shop - Monday and Friday nights. We are located near Packers Ave and Commercial in the one story building on the former Oscar Mayer property at 740 Oscar Ave.

Monday nights are also a regular meetup for our crafting community. Crafters meet every Monday from 6-8pm to work on our projects (sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, weaving, embroidery, lace-making, etc). All skill levels and forms of crafts welcome. Bring a project and any materials and tools you need to work. Knitting needles, crochet hooks, sewing machines, yarn winder, irons, steamer, and more will be available for use during the meetup.

All guests must be hosted by a member in the shop area in use. We try to have a second member host available on Mondays for use of the "dirty" shop area for guest use.

To use our tools, guests must receive training and be checked off by a qualified member. If you would like to use a tool during an Open Shop and require a check-off, please let us know ahead of time and we will do our best to have a qualified member available.

Guest tours are on the half hour hour at 6pm, 6:30pm, 7pm,& 7:30pm.

Want to become a member? New member orientations are at 8pm every Friday.
