Making is our Way

" I believe that anyone can be good at making things. It just takes determination, drive, will, and the ability to try again when things don't go as planned. Know that something will always go wrong, but you have the ability to fix anything. The two most important skills to have for the present and future is the ability to follow instructions and the ability to start and finish projects. Many of people are starters that don't finish or talkers that don't start. Successful makers plan, start, finish, fix, and celebrate!"

Our Story

I learned to sew as a child and my family is full of artists. When I was home with my young children I began to dismay at the way kids do crafts that are basically landfill. So I began a quest to teach my children and others to make things that people would treasure and keep.

I began an after school maker program at my daughters' small private school where we played with computers, coding, lego, robots, minecraft, needlecraft, painting, and costume construction. The administration of the school loved what I was doing and invited me to bring my program into the regular curriculum.

I now have two full nights of my after school program. All students aged kindergarten to grade 8 have my maker class twice per week. If I post a project on this page, it has been kid tested and approved!
