Creativity begins here. Get things MADE.

About…

MADE

MADE is a place for people who already love making things, or who want to learn to love making things. It’s the brainchild of Ebony Love, who wanted a place for creatives to gather (and to reclaim her house from hundreds of bolts of fabric and thousands of dies.)

MADE offers classes in sewing, die cutting, quilting, and long arm quilting.  We’re here to help you start your projects, stitch them confidently, and finish them successfully. If quilting isn’t your thing, we are happy to finish your project for you.

MADE is open by appointment Thursday through Monday, from 9 am to 7 pm.  If we have renters or classes scheduled, we are open to the public and you are welcome to come in; if we don’t have anything scheduled, it’s likely we are not open.  We’d hate for you to waste a trip, so we recommend you check our public calendar or call us before you come to make sure we’re there to greet you!

MADE is also happy to host your sewing, quilting, knitting, or crochet group! You are welcome to book our modular classroom space for your event. Let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

Ebony Love

Hi! I’m Ebony, and I am the force behind MADE. At the time I created my first design business, LoveBug Studios, I had no idea how passionate I would become about sharing my designs and teaching others about this wonderful craft that I love.

My first business was created to serve the ever-growing online population of quilters and crafters who are looking for unique products and experiences and people to share their excitement with.

I love my online community, and LoveBug Studios is not going away, but I have been looking for a way to bring those connections closer and give people a great experience in the real world too. There’s a thriving and growing community of quilters right here where I live, and I hope to meet and host each one of them in the MADE space someday.

Spaces @ MADE

Our classroom can accommodate up to 12 students with sewing machines or 24 students without, plus an instructor with or without a machine.

We also have a 75″ SmartTV monitor for displaying computer content or videos.

Our Long Arm Lab can accommodate up to 6 students during classes or 2 renters outside of classes.

We proudly stitch on Handi Quilter machines: Fitzwilliam is our 24″ HQ Fusion on a 12′ adjustable frame, and Elizabeth Too is our 20″ HQ Amara on a 12′ stationary frame. Either machine will accommodate up to king sized quilts (132″ max backing width).

A Long Arm Renter Certification class is required prior to renting time on our machines.

We have 8 die cutting machines to choose from and over 1,000 dies available.

We can happily accommodate up to 2 renters at a time during classes, and up to 3 when classes are not in session.

A Die Cutting Renter Certification class is required prior to renting time on our machines.

Do you need to trim a quilt, press a large backing, or lay out a garment pattern for cutting? There’s an 8′ x 8′ cutting table available that is the perfect spot for this activity.

You are welcome to use it when it’s available, but please call ahead to confirm it’s open for use.

 

Services @ MADE

We want you to learn the best skills for your creations! Check out our Classes & Events page to learn more about what we have to offer.

Not everyone has the space, time, or budget for a long arm or die cutting machine. Ebony has an extensive collection of machines, but she can only use one machine at a time! So before you invest in a new machine or tool, use ours for a while.

Let’s face it:  not everyone loves the same things. Some people love to cut and hate to piece. Others love to piece but hate to quilt! And don’t even mention binding! We are happy to die cut your quilts for you, or finish your quilts for you on our long arm. If you ask nicely, we may even finish your binding!
We’re not a full-service quilt shop, but we do carry a limited selection of fabrics, patterns, batting, thread, dies, and notions to help you finish your projects. If we don’t carry something, we’re happy to special order items for you. If you prefer to shop in your pajamas, our sister company’s online shop, LoveBug Studios, is open 24/7 for your convenience.
