Blanket Making

BCIS student Dale Swampy used the Maker Studio’s industrial sewing machine to create star blankets with deep-rooted history. After learning how to make his own blankets and selling them to friends and family, Dale connected with the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship’s LaunchPad program, started his own business and used the Maker Studio’s sewing tools to support his work.
