No time for February Blahs as we are going to be busy making at the studio! I have been busy organizing various "makeshops". We have makeshops for knitting, hand sewing, beginner quilting, garment sewing Trunk Shows and a book launch all happening in the the next few months. Take a look at the makeshops and plan to get making.
If you would like a particular makeshop to cover a specific technique or project let us know. We are always open to suggestions.
Trunk Show-Feb 1, 2020 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm Meet Sophie from Dolphina Collective.
Making by hand have been part of Sophie AKA Dolphina since childhood. At 7, she received her first sewing machine from Santa and around 8, she taught herself how to knit from a coloring book."
Knitting and sewing were always part of her life but with a career in corrections, she needed some balance between the chaos of her "real job" and the outside world so that when she discovered indie dyers and avidly picked up the needles
2013 Dolphina bags was at its infancy state, selling bags to friends and local shops and 2019, Dolphina Collective was born, were Dolphina bags were highlighted by incredible small batch hand dyers who have similar values, work ethic and mission, where community will always win over competition.
Dolphina bags is beyond excited of being invited to Make1 Guelph, where very important ties and friendships were born out of adversity. Please pop by the studio to meet Sophie, hear how she started this making journey.
