Hours and Open Studio Times

Written by Kamuela

We are closed 

thank you for 8 wonderful year.

It is with mixed emotions of joy and sadness that I announce Refabulous will be closing its doors at the end of this summer’s programs.

My family and I will be making our way back to our first home – Hawaii – in late September. I have loved being a part of the creative community in Olympia, loved watching inspiration spark in so many kiddos and adults, and am deeply grateful for all the laughter and trust you have shared with me over the last 8 years. Thank you, I will miss so much of what makes ReFabulous the magical place it has become, and most of all I will miss the people who made ReFabulous a place I wanted to be everyday.

One of the parts of ReFabulous I LOVE is the endless sea of possibility having so-so-so very much inspires. I am clearing the shelves, the baskets, the bins and the little stacking places and opening a pop-up shop in the space next to the studio – come get a little – or a lot – and create your own corner of inspiration.

My favorite line over the years about my ‘creative organizational style’ was from a young girl – who walked in and said “mommy … this is the PERFECT amount of messy!”







About the author



  • I am interested in having a birthday party for my 7 year old daughter turning 8 in September. We would have just a hand full of girls with us. I am thinking Sunday Sept 11. Saturday would work too. What sort of packages do you have as far as which craft or project you could offer? What are your rules on outside food? How long would I expect the party to last? Thanks.


  • We have a small group of quilters (6-8 people max) who want to get together regularly–perhaps 2 x a month to sew.

    On your open sew times, I assume a person needs to buy a punch card to use your facilities. What is the cost of the cards and the rules for using them?

    • Hi Suzette,
      We can work something out for your group – give us a call at (360) 489-1852 — our summer evenings are really quiet so if we plan well we can make this work. Our rules are few – be nice when you are here and have a good time – the cards do not expire and we keep them here with us so you don’t have to think about losing them.

  • hi,
    i’m looking for someone who would be able to shorten my daughter’s homecoming dress a couple of inches. the homecoming is on 11/1/14. any ideas? i live very near your westside olympia locations so that would be very convenient 🙂

    • Lily come in anytime today after school I will be in the studio until 6pm – I am so looking forward to working with you.

  • Hi Kamuela. I’m sorry to hear about your Dad and hope he makes a speedy recovery.
    I’m wondering what open sew times are available before you leave? I know I need help and didn’t want to be at it alone!
    Thanks for letting me know.
