Williamsport Community WoodshopThe Pajama Factory encompasses many different creative facets from small business owners, to entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, coffee lovers, but tucked in the back part of the building past the courtyard is a special place for people to use their hands and learn a new skill.
Cliff Stevens and his wife, Veruschka, moved to the Williamsport area from center-city Philadelphia, and even though they have only been in the city a little over a year, they have felt a distinct welcome in the community.
Tommy Grieco is an artist from Lock Haven who uses the Pajama Factory for his studio space to create his paintings and chalk pastel pieces. “It’s great to get together and share ideas and creativity,” he comments about the atmosphere at the Pajama Factory. Tommy says that he feels a sense of community within the Pajama Factory, but felt an even greater sense of it when people from across the Williamsport and Lock Haven area donated to his GoFundMe site for a new wheelchair.
