Fall is moving in to replace our breezy summers, and Bella's Studio, Downtown Old Monterey's sewing, craft, and design studio, is following suit with seasonal changes. It's time to adjust our hours!

Beginning in September, Bella's Studio will be open 4 days a week: Monday-Thursday, 10am-5pm. The studio will be closed Fridays, and available on Saturdays by appointment. We're located at 140 W. Franklin Street, Suite 309.

From the needle-phobic beginner to the seasoned expert, everyone is invited to Bella’s Studio – a unique, creative space established to teach the art of sewing, craft and design. The studio offers personalized classes and is fully equipped with Baby Lock sewing machines, dress forms, fabric, notions, and more… All you have to bring is your desire to learn and create.

A cultural force for over 50 years, David Crosby faced an uncertain future after the 2015 dissolution of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Racked with health issues and personal obstacles, he forged a new path at the age of 77. Seeking out younger musicians and recording a pair of critically-praised new albums, Crosby now sets out to make a mark in a world different from the generation he came to define in the 60s. With unflinching honesty, self-examination, regret, fear, exuberance, and an unshakable belief in family and the transformative nature of music, Crosby shares his often-challenging journey with humor and bite in this documentary film.

Honeyland is made with the widescreen sweep of an epic film, visually ambitious and driven by an unexpectedly dramatic narrative and a surprising sense of humor. It’s a tough and tender portrait of the delicate balance between humankind and nature, a glimpse at a fast-disappearing way of life, and an unforgettable testament to one extraordinary woman’s resilience.
