Have you ever seen something on Pinterest and thought I want to make that?

Do I need a reservation?

Although we do accept “walk-ins” and “drop-in” crafters during open craft hours, we highly recommend making a reservation! We often fill up quickly and a reservation ensures that you’ll have a seat when you walk-in! Open crafting is a first come, first served basis with priority going to the reservations we have on file. Our busiest times are typically evenings and weekends, so let us know how many you have and what time you’ll be coming in, and we’ll save you a table. We allow you 1 hour for a reservation so let us know if you think you’ll need more time!

When reserving a table EACH person at the table MUST have a reservation even if they are not crafting. If your reservation has less than 6 people, you may be seated at a table with others.

 To make a reservation you can reserve below, call us at (757) 819-7982, email us at connect@ourdailygnome.com, or send us a message via our Facebook or Instagram page!

***Please note - we will hold your reservation for up to 15 minutes after your scheduled time. After that, we can no longer save your table. If you know you’re going to be late, please let us know! Your time begins at your reserved time.***

Will I be guided during open crafting?

We have Creative Coaches available to assist you. Open crafting is not a step by step process, instead we help you on an individual basis. We understand that we all have different crafting experience, so we can help you as much or as little as you’d prefer. We encourage creativity and questions, so don’t be shy! It’s our job to be experts!
