we were so happy to host fox 13 in studio this week
makeme friends and families,
We are temporarily closed for classes and events until covid restrictions are lifted for non-essential businesses. We are, however, open for art in your home! In case you haven't heard, we've been putting together some amazing craft kits to help beat boredom and bring the magic of makeme TO YOU! If you haven't done so already please check out our new retail site!
The impact of this crisis on small businesses such as ours - especially those whose livelihood relies on the gathering of people for classes and events - is already huge. We urge you to consider supporting independent business owners and artists directly during this time in any way you can. Here's an awesome directory compiled by Keep St. Pete Local of businesses like ours that can be supported online.
We've include a list of frequently asked questions regarding deliveries, donations, and classes below to bring you up to speed! A special thanks from the bottom of our glitter-filled hearts for your patience and continued support during this crazy time. Please #staycalmandcrafton
CRAFT KITS: DELIVERIES, PICK UPS, & SHIPPING:
We are trying to do our part and avoid asking customers to leave their house for pick ups at this time unless absolutely necessary. Instead, we’re offering free delivery to folks within about a 6 mile radius of the studio. You can check out our delivery map here.
We are operating with a skeleton crew and only delivering a few days a week at present. We hope to expand kit offerings and shipping options in the very near future for those outside of our delivery area. If you need something for an easter basket and are out of our range we may offer some limited pick up windows friday and saturday afternoon this week. Please contact us here.
WHAT ABOUT CLASSES & SUMMER CAMPS?
you may be receiving automated class reminders for upcoming registrations in April. Please disregard (we are working on figuring out how to get those turned off). We will be issuing credit for these classes and rescheduling as soon it is safe to do so.
All classes, parties, and summer camps (may and beyond) are STILL A GO at this time. We will not be cancelling or refunding those offerings until we can make a more informed choice and have a better idea of how governmental restrictions will continue. We are praying everyone is keeping safe and that we can return to “normal” long before then :)
HOW ARE YOU? WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP MAKEME SURVIVE THIS?
first off, thanks for asking! we are working our little hineys off to support our employees, be a great resource to our community, and sell kits to help pay our bills during this uncertain time. We appreciate and welcome your support in the following ways:
