Madalynne Studios Tour

madalynne studios (1 of 17)

Coined by Edward Lorenz, the Butterfly Effect describes a phenomenon in which a small decision causes profound changes somewhere far away and/or in the future.

I sent an email to The Loom in late winter asking if there were spaces available for rent. It was a small step, maybe an inch, but it lead to Madalynne taking a giant leap forward. Because I hit the send button, I am now on the road to having my own sewing studio that offers sewing lessons and workshops. How exciting, right?

It took about a month to furnish the space, but it’s finally together. Well, almost. I informally introduced you to the studio when I signed the lease, but today, I’m formally introducing you two and giving you a photo tour. In one corner is a photography set up where I’ll shoot flat sets, portraits, etc., and in the other corner is an empty space that I’ll decorate and use as a backdrop according to each project (example here). Along the adjacent wall is a couch, side chair and coffee table. This is where I’ll meet with clients, students, etc.

Furnishing was the first step, and then next is to stock up on necessary supplies. Currently, I have one straight stitch machine and one zigzag machine set up (not plugged in for photos), but more machines are to come. Also on the to-buy list are a fold out table and chairs (for workshops and lessons) and sewing notions. I have a lot, but need a lot more. One step at a time.

Later this month, I’m meeting with two event planners and a web designer to get the ball rolling on lessons, workshops and a new site that supports what Madalynne will soon be. Stay tuned!

    Yessssss! Total fist pump moment; I’m so excited that this will be happening in Philly! When Lauren from lladybird said she’d be teaching classes, you have that second where you think how awesome that would be, then remember that you’re in another city, very, very far away. This is great, and I definitely look forward to taking classes. Good luck!!
