Updates from MakerCraft Studio - March 25

Since we got the building permit, so much work has been happening!

The electrician has been running new wiring all over the building.

The guys at Dapper Scrapper cleaned out the back room on the first floor and demo'ed the old first-floor bathroom. We recommend them highly! Professional work at a reasonable price.

Rob framed out the ADA-accessible new bathroom on the first floor, and our plumber installed the new toilet and ran water lines.

Patti, Joe, Cass, and friends Gail and Sean have been working on stripping the layers of wallpaper and paint from the small bedroom upstairs and repairing the walls underneath.

We scored a great deal on clearance kitchen cabinets for both kitchens this week, and work on the kitchens will start shortly.

We have gotten donations of sheets and furniture in the past 2 weeks from friends and supporters. Thank you so much! If you'd like to help, check out our "wish list" on our website ( If you'd like to donate money (either as an outright donation or as prepayment for a future class or retreat stay), you can mail us a check (payable to MakerCraft Studio) to the address at the bottom of this email, or we accept PayPal at

Thank you again for all the support you've shown us!

~Patti, Cass, Rob, and Joe

Hi, everyone, So much accomplished in the past month! Patti retired from her "day job" on April 1! Patti and Joe traveled to Texas for the eclipse (saw some of it... it was cloudy), and for a long-overdue visit with her family. While they were gone, Rob continued work downstairs and replaced the windows on the first level. So much more light now! New window! Outside of new window Gail and Toni worked on painting the trim in the living room upstairs. Gail (left) and Toni Living room trim color...

We have gotten the building permit! This is a BIG step, and our electrician is already hard at work. Here he is installing lots of floor outlets. Rob and Joe have been working on the porch. They repaired water damage, raised up the whole porch to fix its sagging (we have new period columns to replace the old 4 x 4's), painted new floor boards, and replaced the old roof with a lovely green metal roof. Patti and Cass attended QuiltCon last week in Raleigh, NC, where we got a chance to learn,...
