make*do*mend: The Drygoods Design Make It Happen Club - October 2016 to June 2017

$ 750.00

This product is unavailable

The best kind of club there could be - learning what you want to learn and tackling the projects your skills are ready for, getting help when you need it, feeding your creativity, and possibly most important, not doing it alone, meeting and spending time with like-minded people.


We’ve loved our book club groups the last two years and wanted to make it something anyone could be part of, no matter their sewing experience. This year and hopefully for years to come, we’re bringing you the opportunity to be part of a community, learn and shape up your own book of work. Whether it’s finally fitting and making those three patterns in your stash you’ve never had the spirit or wherewithal to tackle, or figuring out how to start going through your fabric stash or finish a few projects from your favorite book, new or old, the Make it Happen club is yours for the taking.

So how does it work? Once you sign up for the nine-month option, we will send you a welcome email including all the details of next steps so that you’re hitting the ground running on October 1, if not before, as well some initial questions around your goals, hopes, previous challenges, etc. so that we can make the most of your intro session with us that will be scheduled for a time that works for you in September.

Once we meet with you in September, we’ll hand off your tote bag, full of the goodies above and we’ll start shaping your you-specific plan for the nine months ahead, which will be organized in your new workbook/planner built specifically for your plan and goals!

Want to do this but don’t really know what you want to tackle or where you want to go but just want a way to stay motivated and inspired? That’s wonderful and never fear, we have some really wonderful projects and potential books that would make for an awesome school year of sewing. We’ll also take a look at your typical schedule throughout the year so that if the holidays and other months are crazy times for you, your plan can be realistic for you and the course of life.

This alone makes us so excited for fall!
