Todd Rice of Studio 7-243 and Barbara Andreassen of Studio 9-208 will each open their studios for guests to walk in, take a look around and discuss their work.  Paul Clacher of Studio 7-250 will also host an open studio and will be doing live watercolor paintings, while Pajama Factory owners, Mark and Suzanne Winkelman, will be opening their residential loft for visitors and friendly conversation. 

This is only a sample of what will be happening around the Factory.  ​“February First Friday at the Pajama Factory has always been an opportunity for our community to welcome the greater Williamsport area community into what we do,” said Event Chair, Brian Spies.  ​“We can’t wait to have you see how our community continues to grow and thrive!”

​There is so much to see and do, so visit us and experience our Creative Community first hand.  And as we say around here:  Dream it. See it. Do it.  ... at the Factory.
