With three weeks until Valentine’s Day, The School of Making offers gift inspiration for the maker in your life from our Valentine’s Gift Guide.
Newly released to The School of Making, our 100% organic medium-weight cotton jersey is available by-the-yard in Sunset—a bright and fun color for an upcoming, springtime sewing project. The flattering Crop Cardigan is also available in Sunset. Our machine-sewn cardigan can be paired with a variety of dresses, skirts, tops, and pants already in her wardrobe and is offered for a limited-time in Sunset and Baby Blue.
We’re reissuing these whimsical, classic kits: Anna’s Garden Camisole Dress, Alabama Eyelet Gore Skirt, Paisley Swing Skirt, and Paisley T-Shirt Top. They’ll be available for a limited-time exclusively for Valentine’s Day. Available in sizes X-Small through XX-Large, the DIY Kits include all the fabric and thread needed to make your own garment. All of our kits also come with a stitch sampler to practice on before starting your project. Find our entire selection of DIY Kits here.
We offer gift certificates for sewing workshops, which range from an intro class for beginners to a week long, immersive class. If they aren’t able to make it to The Factory for a workshop, gift a virtual experience working alongside Natalie through the online Craftsy class “The Swing Skirt: Techniques and Construction,” which provides instruction for assembling our Swing Skirt, along with the basics of stenciling and the physics of sewing—simply select “Gift This” to add to your cart and send it to a loved one. Our Swing Skirt Bundle is designed to pair with this course, or you can choose a Magdalena Swing Skirt DIY Kit in our new Sunset/Natural colorway.
Our Striped Scarf DIY Kit paired with The Geometry of Hand-Sewing makes the perfect gift for someone wanting to expand their embroidery skills and create a wearable stitch sampler. For a one-size-fits-all (and last-minute) alternative, digital gift certificates are also available.
