our schloarship winner!


We are SO proud and excited to announce the (very first ever)
2011 Makerie scholarship winner!


Sara Guiffre 


Sara's third party nomination spoke so clearly about her incredible generous spirit, and how she has dedicated her personal life to serving others less fortunate. She has endured much more than the average person and her love for creativity has helped her persevere. In just one conversation with Sara, her genuineness and positive attitude simply shined. The quote at the bottom of her emails epitomizes what she is all about:

"Just make yourself lovely, there is nothing you can do about the storm."

What a beautiful way to approach life! A most heartfelt congratulations to Sara. We are so happy to have you at the Makerie this year and can't wait to meet you in person!

Thank you so much to every single person who applied for the scholarship and for sharing your heart-warming stories. I am already trying to think of ways to add more scholarships for next year! Here's to Old Glory Antiques & Common Threads for making the scholarship possible this year. Your support means the world.



  1. I have known Sara Guiffre for a long time (since before she was born) and I can't think of a more deserving person who will appreciate and share so much from what she will gain at Makerie.

  2. Sara is incredible! You will absolutely love her and she will absolutely love the experience you have provided! Great choice!
