Maker’s Habitat is the latest resident in town whereby it quickly became every creative haven where sewing and designing apparels are involved. Just one year young, this sewing center provide ala carte classes where students can choose to learn individual projects, as well as learning courses that take students from newbie level to experienced level. one of the key features of Maker’s Habitat is that it does not discriminate as it is open to all, even as young as 6 years old to senior citizens.
Co-founders and childhood friends, Makers’ sewing instructors are Ching and Eileen, who believe in the joy of creating pretty and functional things with our very own two hands. Both Ching and Eileen pride themselves for their knack in sewing so much so, Ching prides herself as bag designer too, as her goods have received accolades in the likes of Elle and British Vogue. As for Eileen, sewing started off as a therapeutic hobby which in turn became a full-time work. She believes sewing as a mean of mental exercise as it trains the mind in problem-solving as well as enhances our creativity too. Who knew?
Maker’s Habitat is very well received especially amongst mother-daughter duos because you learn fun activities such as dressmaking – from an everyday top to a fitted dress, working with different types of fabric (cotton, knit, polyester). Both kids and adults can learn how to make their own clothes. One of the most sought-after activity has to be character pillow-making (such as animals or monsters) because this allows kids to get creative by designing and making their own. On top of that, Maker’s Habitat is very practical and hands-on when it comes to their lessons. Books and theories can be a snooze fest, hence their business model is effective to keep everyone interested from start to finish.
Here, you can also host sewing parties apt for birthdays and baby showers for a change. Also, Maker’s also have a stunning collection of fabrics sourced from Korea and Hong Kong which can be purchased separately too.
If you are keen, Maker’s have packages for both kids and adults. Kids 8-class package is RM569. Adults bag making package is RM1050, dressmaking package RM1320. For more information, definitely check out their Maker’s Habitat Facebook page as well as their official page here.
