1. Spool of Thread Sewing Lounge

Even a beginner who’s never touched a sewing machine can walk away from a class at this teaching shop with a custom self-made skirt, bow tie or tote bag. 649 East 15th Ave

2. Grubwear

Skip the basic touristy gear and go to Grubwear, a custom-printing shop with its own cheeky merch: tees featuring the Dude Chilling Park sign, “CANUCK AF” and East Van cross print underwear. 617 Kingsway

3. The Pie Hole

After years of working out of a shared kitchen, pie master Jenell Parsons debuts her bricks-and-mortar shop on Fraser. Inside it’s bright and white with geo tiles and a country diner feel, and the pies are all decadent and toothsome, from the raspberry cream crumble to savouries like mac and cheese. 3497 Fraser St

Thanks to the baking classes at the Gluten Free Epicurean, you can have your cake and eat it too. Learn how to create and decorate your own vegan, gluten-free cupcakes, brownies and doughnuts and leave with an arsenal of can’t-believe-it’s-not-butter recipes. 633 East 15th Ave

5.  Bloom Room Botanical Gallery

Try your green thumb at one of the interactive workshops offered by Bloom Room. Learn how to create your own plant designs, kokedamas, terrariums, and flower arrangements, and take home your very greenery masterpiece. 621 Kingsway
