At this time there are FIFTEEN shops on Team Wist that start with the letter M…I’m sure there are more to come. This will be an ongoing series but I will try to feature at least 3 a week. Today we’ll meet marinatina, marionhill, and Mary’s Shop.
We’ll start in Milwaukee, WI, and visit marinatina’s shop .
Here’s what I learned from her profile:
I make things. Lots of things, but I'm best at sewing. My grandma taught me how to sew when I was little; I started sewing again two years ago to deal with her passing. I inherited her sewing machine and used that for quite awhile; lately I've been using my new Janome. I think my sewing is very influenced by her. I don't waste money or materials. I reuse materials as much as I can; I buy fabric at independent fabric stores when I need something new.
I live in Milwaukee, which I highly recommend to anyone who likes awesome cities full of awesome people. I sew whenever I can; I'm a grad student in a dual degree master's program, so I don't get to sew as much as I'd like. But hey, in one or two years, I will be a Master of History and also Library Science.
Keeping put in Milwaukee we now head over to MarionHill’s shop.
Marion runs a custom order shop: All items are custom made after the order is placed. If you don't see an option that works for you, convo me and I'll make a custom order just for you!
Look’s like we don’t have to leave Milwaukee at all today! Last stop: Mary’s Shop!
Here’s what Mary had to say in her profile:
I have been creating since as long as I can remember. I enjoy sewing projects, jewelry making, and miniatures.
I am willing to do custom jobs.
I hope you enjoyed or quick little trek through Milwaukee…tune in again next Monday to see where the ‘M’s’ take us next!
