The Makery Sewing Studio is a place to create. We teach classes for both children (ages 7 and up) and adults. Sewing, Parent & Me sewing , Project Workshops, Ladies Nights, Private Events, Birthday Parties, One on One’s and more. We often have other Artist visitors teaching other creative classes too.
Beginner classes typically run for 4 week sessions. Enrolled children can be dropped off for this class. Please make sure you read your class description and policies when enrolling for a class. After the initial Learn to Sew class, students move into “Kids Sewing Studio”. These classes are broken down in 10-15 week chunks around the public school schedule (Fall, Winter, Spring). Please be aware, we do use sewing machines, pins, sharp scissors and hot irons. We teach safety first, but accidents do happen. By registering for class, you are giving permission for The Makery’s instructors to perform basic First Aid if necessary and agreeing not to hold The Makery Sewing Studio or it’s employees liable for any accidents. Please understand that your child must be capable of listening to instructions and using materials in a safe way to be allowed to take classes. If Scituate Public Schools are cancelled or on Holiday, we are CLOSED too. Let’s Make Stuff!
Owner, Sewing Instructor
I’ve always loved to learn new things, teach others and do so in a way that is fun and creative.
I got my BS in Early Childhood Education from the University of Vermont. I owned and operated a toddler play school for 7 years before I had my 3 girls (now 5, 5 and 3). In the past, I taught my own literacy-based art curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers at South Shore Learning Lab (where I was awarded “Best Art Class” by Macaroni Kid) and at Mamas Move. I had been teaching adult and kid sewing classes at the South Shore Learning Lab as well as here at The Makery before I bought the Studio in September of 2015.
Growing up, my creativity was always supported. My Mom and Nana were always making things, and took the time and patience to help me learn different ways of expressing my creativity and breaking down my ideas into workable steps to allow them come to life. If I needed a costume or a new dress, off to the fabric store we went to look through the pattern books and find the perfect fabric. Throughout my life, being a Maker has always been a big part of who I am. I love sewing things for my children, gifts for others and custom orders for others. I love teaching people to sew, encouraging their creativity and watching them challenge themselves and create awesome stuff!
