Owners hope to help nonprofit organizations and businesses with fundraising, they say, while also providing individuals a different type of creative outlet
Nailed It DIY Studio, located at 5537 Palmer Crossing Circle in Sarasota, will host a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, Feb. 27, at 10 a.m., the owners have announced.
The festivities will feature studio tours, do-it-yourself (DIY) demonstrations and complimentary projects for guests to create on site, a news release notes.
Nailed It guests “will learn to safely use power tools while being guided through the steps to sand, build, paint, design, and create a project as unique as they are,” the release points out. Individuals “at any level of experience will feel right at home with the help of highly-trained ‘Art-Tenders’ leading them” through their projects, the release adds.
A guest does not have to be of part of a group or party to create a project, the release explains. A person may just simply book studio time online or stop in with no appointment, it adds. Each guest chooses his or her own individual project, the release points out.
Store hours are Tuesday through Sunday from noon until 8 p.m. The final seating is one hour prior to closing, the release notes.
Nailed It offers 26 different sizes of wood projects, more than 400 designs “and a multitude of games and projects to choose from,” the release says. Junior woodshop classes, summer camps, children’s workshops, holiday camps, and children’s birthday parties will be available for booking, as well, the release points out.
Nailed It DIY Studio in Sarasota is owned and operated by Michelle Bianchi and Michelle Kenner, the release says. Their roots are in the nonprofit world, as well as graphic design and marketing, the release adds.
The store located at the intersection of Clark Road and Honore Avenue will be the first of three planned locations in the area, the release points out.
“What’s really exciting about opening a Nailed It DIY Studio in Sarasota is knowing just how many ways we are going to be able to help our community,” said Bianchi in the release. “Fundraising is a large part of our business model, and we are looking forward to assisting the area nonprofits as well as local businesses to help raise funds and awareness for programs that directly impact our community,” she added in the release. “We know this year has been tough on many of our nonprofit friends,” Bianchi continued, “and we know we can help them in this new, innovative and fun way.”
Nailed It DIY Studio is a franchise that started in 2014, the release notes. The flagship store is in Rock Hill, S.C. Sarasota is the franchise’s 25th store.
