The School of Making was created in 2014—though our workshops, educational services, and DIY projects date back to the early 2000s. This important part of our business allows us to make living arts accessible to all consumers.
Today, we guide you through this section of our new site, which has a few updates.
What We Love is, well, just that. This page gives us a place to share favorite products, and you can expect this section to change as we introduce or highlight new and different designs. (These items can also be found in their respective categories.)
On our previous site, the DIY Sewing Kits were nested under the Maker Supplies section—now they stand out on their own making them easier to find. With the site launch, we’ve also introduced four new kits: the Alabama Fur Corset, Anna’s Garden Corset, Anna’s Garden Factory Tunic, and Stars Alabama Sweater.
Maker Supplies are our go-to notions, tools, and materials—what we use day after day in our own studio—including a variety of organic fabric yardage in medium-weight jersey, lightweight jersey, rib-knit, printed, and hand-painted. The new site design showcases the quality of the materials through our photography.
In Studio Books + Patterns, The School of Making Book Series can be found alongside our digital garment patterns (which have moved from the Resources section on our previous site). Use these books as resources to get started sewing and learn all our techniques and methods. Expect more patterns in the collection in the future…
We’ve folded our digital stencil artwork and laser-cut Mylar stencils together into the same product. Now you can choose between the digital or physical offerings (where available)—and see fabric design inspiration for your next project. Find our stenciling tools in Stencils + Resources too.
And use our Site Map to navigate and find your way…
Check back on the Journal tomorrow as we highlight Bldg. 14 on AlabamaChanin.com.
