Coming Soon: Expanded Hours!

About a month or so ago we asked all of our users to take a quick hours survey for us to see if expanding our opening hours was something that was really desired by the majority of our users or just a vocal minority. We are happy to say that we have examined the results of the survey and have found that a majority of our users really would like expanded hours. After consulting staff schedules and looking carefully at our past usage stats, we have decided to adopt the following hours beginning January 4, 2016:

Monday: 3:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Tuesday: 10:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday: 3:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Thursday: 10:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Friday: Closed
Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Sunday: Closed

Because of these expanded hours, we have also made the decision to expand our offering of reservation times for our equipment. Please see the chart below to determine what length of reservation you will be able to make on each piece of equipment. All reservation lengths are currently available on each day the space is open.

Equipment 1 hour Res 2 hour Res 3 hour Res 4 hour Res 5 hour Res 6 hour Res
3D Printers X X X
Long Arm Quilting Machine X* X X* X
Sewing Machines X X X
Embroidery Machine X X X
*Denotes new time slots

New reservation lengths are easily added, so we will monitor usage and feedback from our users to determine if we need to further expand reservation lengths. We have had over 275 reservations since opening, so we are glad that this system is helping our users get to use the equipment at a time that works for them.

We hope that these hours will be able to accommodate more users in the space and we look forward to continuing to make these resources available to our community in 2016!
