MITCHELL — A new public workshop called “Your Shop,” featuring 3D printers, sewing machines, table saws, lathes and more, will be opening on Mitchell's Main Street in mid-September.

The shop, owned and operated by Tanya Kitto, will allow shoppers and crafters alike to be able to purchase already-made arts and crafts or make create some of their own.

Describing the shop as more of a “makerspace,” Kitto hopes to create a sense of community by opening the doors to whoever wants to create. She said the idea popped into her head in 2019 after talking to locals who wanted a place to craft, but had nowhere to go.

“The idea behind it is that people can bring in their own materials or purchase them here,” Kitto said, “and they can use any of the equipment they need to craft.”

Kitto said the shop will be offering classes on electronics, where crafters will be taken through a step-by-step course designed by a NASA scientist on wiring and much more.

There will be paint offered for 3D miniatures or materials of the crafters choice, 3D printers available to print their own designs, a tufting area, stained glass making, sewing machines, Cricut machines, vinyl cutters, sublimation machines and a leather working area — all offered through a single, $20 day pass or through a membership.

“The front of the store will be completely retail — they can purchase ready-made items,” Kitto explained. “The back of the store will be the shop aspect, where they can craft.”

Kitto said there will also be kits available for purchase, which crafters can both buy and build in store.

“How that works is, if someone buys $60 worth of kits, it counts as a three day pass to the shop,” Kitto explained, “Or there’s day passes for $20, and then there’s the monthly membership at $60 a month.”

The business will come as a relief for those who don't have the space to craft or everyday access to the machinery offered in Your Shop.

Your Shop also will be open for twelve hours a day, Monday through Saturday, which makes finding time to stop by much easier for those with busy schedules.

There will be a workshop held on August 20 for an Intro to the Scroll Saw course, led by Kitto herself, getting back to basics on how it's used and what it does.

Kitto says Your Shop, located on 304 North Main Street, will be opening to the public on September 17 at the latest, with their opening hours being from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
