New Studio, New Website! June 12 2019, 0 Comments

I think anyone who has ever met me knows how much time I spend on our website, sigh. I am SO excited to have finally be done with our brand new website design! It's so pretty, no?

What's new you ask?

The look:

I think you already know how different that is. We add new pics of the studio too!

Calendar:

The calendar is way easier to use, and color coded, and you can also choose which classes you want to see. So if you just want to see beginner classes, you can select the category and then it will only show those classes. How cool is that?!

Classes:

I think the biggest improvement is how the classes look. They are much easier to page though (able to select all or just some class levels) and they have more pictures and are easier to look at.

New Summer Kids Camp! Summer Wardobe Series June 12 2019, 0 Comments

Hello Darlings! We decided to switch things up and add another new camp for the kids. Can't wait to see all the fun sewing shenanigans they get up to!

 

Kids Summer Camp: Summer Wardrobe Series (3 Day Camp)

We thought this summer we would put a special twist on our popular pajama party camp! This time around we are not only making PJ bottoms but also a cute little PJ top to go with it! In this class the girls will learn basic sewing techniques through making a pair of PJ bottoms (shorts, capri or long, whatever they like) as well as a cute little tank top and a travel pillow with hidden pocket to hide all their goodies.

Hi there! So we hear that there will be no school on the 19th, what a great day to do some sewing instead! We just added a new one-day kids camp making infinity scarves and circle skirts. We hope to see you there!

Kids Camp: Infinity Scarf & Circle Skirt

09:00 am - 04:00 pm May 19, 2015

$75/child

_____________________________________________________________

Infinity scarves are all the rage these days, as are twirly circle skirts! And adults shouldn’t be the only ones who get to sew them! In this intro class we will teach the kids how to use the machine, all while making fun infinity scarves and circle skirts. From the basics of the machine to how to hem and attach elastic, it will be a whirlwind of learning…the fun way. 

Hey we also have a boycentric version to all our classes. Shoot us an email if you have a boy interested in sewing, but not skirts

WOW, 4 whole years of wonderful sewing memories! I cannot believe it has been 4 years since I turned that beautiful sign Julia made from Closed, to Open. In fact, we still have that lovely sign. There have been a few lows, but so many highs that I cannot count them. 

I want to say thank you to all the wonderful people who have contributed to the studio by either working tirelessly to keep teaching the Future Sewist of America, to our wonderful students who keep coming in to learn something new and sewcialize with us. 

In honor of our 4th, it's time for me to give a little back, with a 20% discount off ALL classes and camps. Enjoy and I to be writing this same note next year, and the year after, and the next one :)

At checkout use the discount code "Madeaversary" to receive your 20% off! 


Happy 4th Birthday to Made! (Sale) June 12 2019, 0 Comments

Wow, 4 years! I can't believe 4 years ago today I turned that sign from Closed, to Open. What an amazing roller-coaster ride! Owning your own business is much more stressful and complicated than I could have ever imagined, but I have loved it (and sometimes hated it.) 

I'd like to take a moment to thank all of the wonderful people who have helped make Made successful over the years, from family and friends to dedicated 

Julia, Jess, Erin, Rose & Katie: Thank you for all your amazing hard work. I could never run this business without you, and your tireless loyalty and dedication is like no other I've ever experienced. 

Ben & Joe: My carpentry heroes! You have helped on so many occasions to fix and mend things in the studio. You guys rock.

Deb, Sylvie, Jen & Jen: The Friday Night ladies, thank you for bringing your fun, wonderful spirits to the studio ever Friday. I learn from you constantly, thank you for your friendship and support.

My Little Students: What can I say, every week and summer I laugh harder than I ever thought I could. You are all delightful little balls of sunshine and teaching you is an honor.

My Taller Students: I love teaching my adult students, I love hearing about your lives and adventures and watching you embark on the new creative art of sewing.
