About

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

I focus on teaching people how to understand and make clothing and clothing related items from the past. I use tools and techniques from history and sometimes blend them together for modern pieces as well. My goal is is to get people past their fears about hand crafting at a high level of proficiency. I want to foster joy and well-being through my work. Craft is self-care and that is my guiding principle. To make my goal work, I've written books, made videos and soon, I will launch a new website to house all of this information.

Your support will contribute towards creating more videos, books and developing the new website which will eventually grow to contain more, courses, and instructional material as well as training plans for learning and mastering trades and even working with history in your kitchen. Every month, I release new content here on Patreon which is aimed at helping the historical, or modern crafter/tailor/costumer create well-made and beautiful clothing.

I thank you for your subscription and I hope that my work helps you further your own creative choices!

Goals
42% 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.
