A word we all have our individual definitions of…
Everyone at makeitsew brings different skill sets and knowledge bases to you, the sewing public. Many of us worked at other shops in the area over a span of years. We all started with experience not garnered exclusively at makeitsew. We all had ideas about the sort of shop we wanted this to be and how we each could and would fit in a concept of our own building. As a non-commission shop, we have great motivation to share with one another so that you, the consumer can have access to all of our expertise without the complication a commission floor brings. We are, after all consumers as well. As consumers we don’t always appreciate the practices of a “high pressure” floor. In short, we listen and offer suggestions after we become acquainted with your mission.
If you were to ask anyone on our team of educators what our prime directive is, each of us would say education, education and yes, education! Our educators are knowledgeable, creative, easy to ask questions of, and just plain fun to hang out with! They are eager to share their knowledge with you. If they don’t know an answer to a question, they will find someone who does!
Speaking of questions . . .
Did you just purchase a sewing, embroidery, quilting, longarm machine, serger or JANOME’s amazing Digitizer software at make it sew? If you did, have you taken your complimentary classes? Did you know that at makeitsew, they are complimentary with your purchase? Are you looking for project inspiration? Need a little help with a tricky technique?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, than please check out our classes and give us a call to register today!
We have so much to offer!
Sewing machines are complex tools with 2.3 maximillion moving parts on average. You can look it up somewhere on the web.
Seriously, like all mechanical devices that perform useful tasks, wear from repeated use and motion requires cleaning, lubricating, repairing and adjusting. Our repair staff at makeitsew is known in the area for exceptional standards and performance in that arena. We don’t boast of having serviced over 20,000 units before we opened 13 years ago, it’s just a fact. Bob became a tech for many shops on the front range attending service classes for the various brands those shops sold. He brought that training and those standards to makeitsew on day one. He also likes to drag the sales staff to the bench on occasion so they don’t feel inclined to invent answers to your questions. He has appeared at dozens of sewing guilds as a guest lecturer with his program, ”Common Knowledge, Myths & Design Flaws” , has been quoted or the subject of testimonials and service videos for Janome , HandiQuilter and McCall’s Magazine.
Everyone needs a little fun in their lives! If you have never been to one of our events, please do come! There is so much to choose from!
