And sew it begins...

Make at 140 - Lizzy Evans


A warm welcome to local sewing and crafting business, Make at 140! Former Ocean Studios resident Lizzy Evans is overjoyed to be able to share her unique product offering with her customers again.

To create the right kind of space for Make at 140, RIO has brought its Column Bakehouse Stores into the Café/Gallery space, vacating the ground floor shop unit at the northern end of the Factory Cooperage building for Lizzy.

The new shop will stock fabrics, patterns and locally handmade gifts, adding to the growing independent retail offering in the Yard.

Make at 140 also offers a wide selection of sewing and making workshops out of Ocean Studios but have been looking for a new home for their modern haberdashery since closing their café and shop in Vauxhall Street on the Barbican last Summer.

Lizzy said: “Many of my customers return again and again because of the unique fabrics and haberdashery items I stock, I am so pleased that they can now visit me in-store any time.

Make have established quite a following of wonderfully creative makers over the years, we were all disappointed to leave our previous space, but they have remained loyal and the fit with the community at Ocean Studios is just perfect”
