From where I stand: make*do*mend at Drygoods Design

There is so much to share these days and I definitely will be updating from my recent trips to Houston and LA for fabric buying, as well as the latest for the shop and site as we head into the holidays. However I am beyond excited to finally announce the next adventure here at Drygoods Design.

From where the above was taken, is the view from the future residence of make*do*mend at Drygoods Design – a delightful craft and sewing studio. Launching next month, make*do*mend will not only feature a fun and constant assortment of classes, but also standing hours for open sew and craft time. In partnership with Bernina NW, we will have a beautiful fleet of Bernina sewing machines available for classes and hourly rental.

Make*do*mend at Drygoods Design will be a creative abode for you away from home. Just bring yourself, maybe pick up some fabric and then head into make*do*mend and get to work making, learning and doing, all in a place where people and comfort come first. The highest quality of tools, notions and other supplies will be available for use and for purchase to take home if you fall in love with what you use, including the machines.

If you’re in Seattle or close by please save the following dates in celebration of the launch of make*do*mend!

December 6th, 2012: Enjoy a sneak peek of the new space and meet the lovely Rae Hoekstra of as we welcome her for a fun event during our open studio night and celebrate the Washi Dress print (!!!) pattern!

December 8th, 2012: We are so excited to welcome the talented Blair Stocker of wise craft as our featured artist for Ballard Art Walk as well as the official grand opening/open house of make*do*mend.

Before I go, I want to say thank you. Your support is beyond appreciated and I am so excited to see where this next adventure takes us. I hope that make*do*mend will provide many an opportunity to say thank you and be a place where you want to be, bolstering our creative community, both locally and online.
