I make things. And I like to meet people who make things. I like to talk about making things. With a couple of friends I started a school called Craftstitute, where people could find crafty classes. We ran a lot of different classes - sewing, knitting, natural dyes, block printing and jewelry making, woodworking - so many great classes! Eventually, we found that running a school didn't work with our other lives and had to close our doors to focus on home and work.
The community of people I found through Craftstitute is one that I want to foster even if it isn't through a school setting. The people who taught classes for Craftstitute have so much to offer the community, their knowledge and enthusiasm and good cheer is something to celebrate and cherish.
With MIMBY I hope to do that, and make it easy for the artisans and teachers of craft to be found doing their thing.
Are you excited? Welcome to the community. There is always room for more!
