Local Makers

Here is our list of favorite makers.

We want to empower you to work with your hands, but the next time you need something special, and you can't make it yourself, instead of going to a big box store, try reaching out to a maker, there are a lot more out there than you might think.

This list of Makers, Craftsmen and Craftswomen in your area is ever growing.

If you are a maker and would like to be considered for our list, please send us a little about you, we need the name of your business, your city, two photos, (one of you and one of your work), one link to your website or store, and a brief description of what you do and why you do it (under 450 characters).
