What Makers (just like you!) are saying! 

Shonagh Beth, Lavender Grace Heatbags - I love the Hub because it’s a community of makers who truly root for, and support one another. It’s like being part of a family whose members all bring different talents and passions to the table without competition or judgment. It feels like a safe space to learn and grow as an independent maker and I love being a part of it.

 

Jennifer Bertram, Hoot Loot -I have been sharing about the Hub since I was fortunate to be invited in to sell some products. What drew me to The Hub was the energy Cheryl puts out there for the love and passion she has for local. I had heard from another local maker speak highly of Cheryl’s passion, values and go get it attitude. I knew that I needed to be part of that community.
