Our next event!

Typically a family friendly venue, The Makery will be turning down the lights and turning up the heat for one night of mature content art and craft.

The Makery is located at 1734 Bonnycastle Avenue (corner of Norris Place and Bonnycastle Avenue).

Mature content pieces will only be available for purchase the evening of November 12th.

we're getting old!

The Makery opened its doors on October 12, 2007.
How excited are we to be celebrating 3 awesome years of bringing Louisville some of the best the handmade community has to offer??

The shop moved July of this year to share a new home with Kopilot Press. In the honor of our new partnership and the general awesomeness of working together, we will be presenting a collaborative show by local artists Matt Dobson and Tyler Deeb entitled "BY A VOWEL."

All prints are hand printed, limited edition, signed by the artists, and very affordably priced.

Come out Friday, October 15th from 6-10pm to celebrate with us and while you're here...BUY A VOWEL!

If you REALLY want something noone else at school will have this year, The Makery is the perfect spot to pick up a new shirt, scarf, dress, necklace, or bag. Everything at The Makery is handmade, so its either one of a kind, or there are only a few floating around in the whole wide world.

Project Day

Sometimes I work on some sewing while at the shop. Today was one of those days.
I bought this dress about a year ago from a thrift store here in Louisville. It was super ill fitting. The previous owner must have had quite a rack!
On me, this dress was slim fitting through the hip, and very baggy on the top half. The sleeves were awkard and dated, but I just l o v e d the floral pattern. So... I bought it for maybe $5 and it has just been sitting in my closet.
I have a few events coming up soon and I am on a $0 budget, so shopping for a new dress is out of the question. Luckily, with a little sewing machine magic I was able to take in the side seams, add darts in the bust, and shorten the sleeves of this vintage beauty and voila!
