Hello, I'm Mathew Gnagy, the creator and owner of The Modern Maker!

We are a company that focuses on 17th century clothing and the historical process behind the garments. We currently offer tailoring books, patterns, tutelage, and bespoke tailoring services for those interested in this period.

After spending many years working in the film and television industry as a costumer, I am taking steps to make my own tailoring business into a full-fledged company. This is where you, the patrons, come in!

Your support will contribute towards creating more videos, books and developing products that will eventually grow into retail items such as patterns, courses, and instructional material. Every month, I will release new content aimed at helping the historical, or modern tailor create well-crafted and beautiful clothing.

I thank you for your pledge and I hope that my work helps you further your own creative clothing design!

Goals
40% complete
At this level of patronage, I will begin to back away from full-time work with other companies and instead focus all of my energy on The Modern Maker and once again, become completely self-employed. Its time to go back to letting my passion support me 100%! When I am at this level and can "quit my day job" and also bring other professionals to come work with me to provide more product for the company and more content for my patrons. At this level, there is a possibility to introduce modern content as well, such as machine sewing tutorials for making things like, bluejeans, shirts, jackets and suits.
