Founder / Owner
Hello everyone! My name is Sonia Bernaquez; I'm the Founder and Owner of Make n' Craft. The primary purpose of Make n' Craft is to create an intimate environment where a community of makers and crafters of any level can unleash their creativity while having a blast! Being very curious, I'm always on the watch for new crafting technics and new mediums to use.
I have always been very passionate about home decor and DIY projects. That's what lead me to get a degree in interior design. I later worked for a local newspaper where I was in charge of their special home decor edition magazine. I enjoyed working with graphic designers, so I started learning visual design techniques by myself. I'm still, to this day, very passionate about any visual art. I'm a Canva Pro enthusiast!
Facts about me:
At 40, I had a baby and returned to school! What a mid-life crisis! I completed a bachelor's degree in business management, a certification in personal and professional coaching (I'm an accredited coach, ACC), and a certification as an MBTI practitioner.
In my personal and professional life, putting others first and helping them reach their objective is second nature. Since I moved to Arizona from Montreal (I'm French Canadian) 7 years ago, I have successfully co-founded a nonprofit school for children with autism in Scottsdale. That project was significant, and I'm incredibly proud to have helped many families access a customized educational program for their children with special needs.
In my free time, I like to: Travel the world, do Pilates, cook & bake, watch movies, be with my family and my dogs, and, of course, learn new crafting techniques.
I hope to see you soon at my studio!
