What we're about

We're building a community of women who know how to fix, build and make! Come make friends, drink wine (post-power tools, obvi) and learn how to make your apartment or house look fab!

This is the place for you if:

- You don’t know the difference between a Phillips and a flathead screwdriver. (Hold up— there’s more than one type?)

- You think a “stud finder” is a new dating app

- Your idea of “fixing something” is to go on Taskrabbit

Don’t worry—we've been there! That's why we're getting together to learn hands-on in a fun, intimidation-free setting. You'll learn how to conquer Home Depot and IKEA, fix everyday issues around the house, and make your home look exactly how you want it (saving you lots of money on calling the handyman!).

And if you do have some solid DIY skills, there's still a workshop for you! Browse our upcoming meetups or check out our website for more info:

Can't wait to see you there!
