Lolly was included in a Hartford Courant feature about MakerspaceCT on March, 10, 2020.

MakerspaceCT is a space for makers to learn, take classes, and become members in order to have access to incredible tools that may not otherwise be accessible to them. This was where Lolly got her first taste of industrial sewing machines and was able to prototype some of her products.
