Once upon a time I used to sew & create everyday, a skill that not many people of my generation can do! More so than ever, I now want to do it again, sewing is my one true passion in life. MBG was once a popular clothing brand, cut & sewn all by myself. Over the years I always thought it wasn't enough, so after taking a few years out to reflect, grow & personally expand my skills, I am back with a whole new concept.
My aim this year is to setup in a shared, creative studio space with my creative friend Allan Buxton. We will both run our independent business' from the space with a whole load of skills between us to provide to our customers. I want to expand Made By Gayle into all aspects of sewing, offering a service to individuals & small fashion independents from the heart of Nottingham's Creative Quarter. Made By Gayle Studio will offer such services from bespoke garment manufacture to bespoke curtains & soft furnishings manufacture, clothing label stitch in to collaborations of garment projects & much more on a one to one basis.
My plan is to essentially get behind my machines & do what I love but I need some help with funding to get set up & kick start the business so I thought I'd reach out & hopefully do this through CrowdFunder.
In the future I would like to organise sewing workshops to teach others the basics of how to sew, I'd also like to organise events to help promote independent clothing labels & get a good fashion based rapour going in Nottingham again, it was once the lace capital of the U.K.!
With your help I can fund my project so that my dream of having my own independent business is fulfilled. I will use the money raised to help towards the initial setup costs of the studio. These includes buying new sewing machines & equipment, to build a suitable area that will be a functioning workspace for myself in the studio & also for other work that wants doing to the unit i.e. decorating & finishings.
I pledge you to fund my business because I am a hard working, passionate & driven individual. It's taken me til now to discover what I really want in life & I now own enough skills to make this happen. (I'm currently working in my mums kitchen & it is just not enough space for what I want to achieve, plus it would be nice to give my mother her home back!)
I would like to thank all for giving this a read & if you do decide to fund my business I would love to give you 10% discount on your first spend with myself above £50. This can include alterations, a T-shirt/vest made for yourself or maybe you have a sewing project in mind that I can help you with!
Above all, thank you for taking an interest, you can see how my project expands on Facebook: madebygaylestudio.
Thank you again,
Made By Gayle Studio.
