Located in Seattle, MADE will be a by-the-hour sewing studio with professional sewing equipment, classes, fabric, and free gen ed.

Why is this posted a second time?
Well my dear kickstarters, we have done some studio-budget revamping over the holidays and it turns out, we need way less that we thought (woohoo)! So we are reposting at a lower amount and going for Gold!

This time around we have a very special prize for one lucky winner who bids $50 or more. We will select the winner at random and they will receive...well now we aren't going to tell you...it will ruin the fun. But as we get closer to our goal we will give you hints!


Who are we?
Made Studios is a start-up sewing studio based in Seattle. The sewing studio will offer a spacious sewing area with professional sewing equipment, high-quality fabric/notions, available educational staff, and will host a bevy of additional wearable art classes.

We not only wants to give sewers the space and equipment they need, but also the education and mentorship to expand their skills as artisans. The studio will be an hourly rate and within that time, our staff is ready to help and educate as needed, for free. We will, of course, host classes for additional costs for bigger topics, but for the general sewing questions we are proud to provide all education free

What does that mean?
Made will offer the following services to it's customers:

F-R-E-E:
Advice, education, and help from qualified staff
Introductory lessons on using professional equipment

A cozy siting area

Where does my money go?
To world sewing domination. Oh, ahem, we mean towards our start-up costs such as equipment, furnishings, fabric and other costs. Oh, and our undying love and affection. That's right, our love can be bought! :-)
