The Modern Maker is creating Videos, books, and lessons
54

patrons

Ordinarily, I wouldn't think a platform such as this would be the right direction for my work. However, many people have contacted me asking how they can support my work. I create content on my various pages on Facebook as well as my website, themodernmaker.net which is put out for free. All my knowledge, and processes are there for the taking. I have helped many people elevate their work in historical clothing as well as modern fashion with my posts and videos.

Money that is given here will be put towards creating videos, and books and developing products that will eventually grow into retail items such as courses, DVDs, and books. The difficult part of doing what I do is that I must also work part time in various jobs to be able to pay the bills, while keeping a few days per week that stay devoted to the creation of books and videos and research.

Every month, I will release new content aimed at helping the historical, or modern tailor create well-crafted and beautiful clothes.

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

Master

Donor will receive everything from the above two tiers as well as a more personal discussion about teaching the techniques to others. The pedagogy of teaching the art and science of tailoring is unique and tricky. Learn about how to teach better, understand your students better and how to use your own experiences as a guide to help find your student's strength. Donors in this tier will receive more advanced lessons and more complicated garments, theories and constructions will be addressed. This tier is good for those with skill in multiple techniques. 
Goals
42% complete
At this level of patronage, I will begin to back away from considering a full-time job with a company and instead focus all of my energy on The Modern Maker and once again, become completely self-employed. Its been over a decade since I was gainfully self-employed and nothing has been the same since. Its time to go back to letting my passion support me 100%. When I am at this level and can "quit my day job," I will be able to deliver more content, with more detail and will also be able to pay professionals to come work with me to create better videos, and more of them. At this level, I may start to include more modern content as well, such as machine sewing tutorials for making things like, bluejeans, shirts, jackets and suits.
