Meet the Maker – Made Wise

meetthemaker Meet the Maker   Made Wise

Let’s meet the lovely Jess from Made Wise.

 

Tell us about your business:

Hi I’m Jess, the owner/ creator of MADEWISE.

I’ve always had a love of creating and being crafty. When I was very little I would love playing with my Nanna’s button collection. It was my Nanna who taught me to knit at age eight and also gifted me her sewing machine so I could continue to learn new skills and let out my creative side.

 

What inspired you to start your business?

When I became a stay at home mum I continued to knit, sew and craft. Many of my friends and family kept telling me I should be seeling my creations. After hearing this numerous times I finally set myself up with an Etsy shop.

Meet the Maker Jess from  Meet the Maker   Made Wise

Is there an interesting anecdote behind your business name?

My business is named ‘madewise’, I chose this name because my maiden name is Wise and I wanted to pay homage to family for nurturing and encouraging my passion.

 

What is the most satisfying part of what you do?

The most satisfying part of what I do is knowing the handmade items I make are going to somebody who is clearly loved and I hope they will become treasured keepsakes. I love receiving reviews/ feedback, it genuinely warms my heart to have such lovely customers who leave such lovely words of encouragement and gratitude.

 

What would be your best tip for someone thinking about selling their handcrafted goods?

I would advise anyone out there who is thinking of selling their handmade items to jump in and give it a go! If it’s something you love doing the love will show and you’ll do well. Word of mouth and the wonderful world of social media will get going. And like me, you’ll look back and wonder why it took you so long to take the plunge!
