Free to a good home: mid1960s Singer Fashion Mate. This the exact model of machine I learned to sew on. It seems to be working really well. Only drawbacks are how heavy it is, a side loading bobbin and only has two stitches: straight and zigzag. Pick up in Park Slope. Feel free to tag any friends who might be interested! πŸ’•βœ‚οΈ

General Info

Who is Make Workshop.. early on diana was inspired and schooled by two great craft role models: her mom, kathy, who could give martha a run for her money, and her great-grandmother, hallie, a professional milliner and expert quilter. diana s fondest childhood memories are of her mother s over-the-top projects, a few favorites being a handmade barbie wedding dress, sugar diorama easter eggs and a holly hobbie birthday cake that took two days to decorate. almost all of kathy s skills were self-taught, so it s no wonder diana has a decidedly DIY aesthetic. taught to knit, sew and embroider by the age of eight, diana can t remember a time when she wasn t obsessed with the world of fashion (her first subscription to W was at the tender age of 12). throughout her teen years she struggled with the decision to become either a writer or a clothing designer. her love of books won out at first, but after studying english lit in college and creative writing in grad school, diana finally embraced her superficial side and began working as a stylist and fashion editor. before long she made yet another life-changing decision to trade in all that glam and glory to pursue her real passion: making stuff. but to be honest, she kind of had to: diana s former editor ordered her to stop teaching all of her coworkers to knit on company time. in the summer of 2001 she left san francisco for nyc determined to pursue all things crafty, and in february of 2002 make was started with a friend. in 2003, diana began running the business solo. now she spends her days teaching, dreaming up new workshops, and writing crafty books. in november of 2007 her first foray, SEW: sew everything workshop was published by workman and in oct 2011 the embroider everything workshop will be released.
