We love creative collaborations...and it doesn't get much more creative than this! I are so happy to announce that Old Glory Antiques will be working with The Makerie again this year! Ali, the creative genius behind this retreat, is great to work with and we are so lucky to know such a great lady. She has a wonderful perspective on creativity, on business, and on life in general and I am constantly inspired by everything she does.
The Makerie is a weekend retreat in beautiful Boulder, Colorado designed to nurture everyone's creative side and give participants a weekend to recharge, be inspired, and just simply create. I attended last year and loved every second of it! The classes offered this year range from crochet to letterpress to block printing (and more!) and are taught by wonderful teachers from across the country. From the warm sense of community you feel from the minute you arrive, to the delicious food, to the beautiful scenery all around, this retreat is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. (I love this beautiful video about last year's event!)
This year, Ali has created a second retreat the weekend after the Makerie, the Makerie Sewing! The workshops all sound so interesting and inspiring, and they are taught by well-known and endlessly talented and creative teachers from all across the country. Old Glory Antiques will be funding a scholarship and travel costs for one lucky person to the Makerie Sewing. More details will be coming soon.
We are so proud of Ali for turning this event into such a successful, inspiring, and now multi-dimensional retreat! And we can't wait to continue to collaborate with her. Visit the website & the Makerie blog for more information and to sign up before the classes fill up! And be sure and "like" the Makerie Facebook page for updates!
