FixerSisters = Community
I’m Gina, the founder of FixerSisters.
One day, after laying the 1,000th or so laminate flooring panel by myself in my living room/dining room and kitchen, I thought, “I love DIY. Why am I so miserable right now?”
The answer was that the project was huge, repetitive, time consuming and exhausting. And while my house was filled with family and friends, none of them loved DIY like I do, so they weren’t much fun to work with. Not only was I sick of my current project, but I had stopped looking forward to the other projects on my list.
Realizing that there must be other women like me out there – women who love DIY, but who have learned that going it alone can be the pits – I took to social media to find my tribe and look for reinforcements, and found… nothing.
I wanted a place where we could share our questions and ideas, where we can share tools and find resources that help us work smarter instead of harder, where we can learn together and meet new friends who will help when we need it or just remind us that we can do it when we forget. I didn’t see that place anywhere.
So I built it. FixerSisters is a nonprofit organization made up of members who love DIY and who are all about supporting other women who love DIY, too. You finally found your tribe.
Please join me in making FixerSisters a community like no other.
I look forward to building with you.
