Northside Makers Collective

A few weeks ago, after a disappointing market experience I got chatting with Jennie and the lovely Jay and we thought "we can do this"....

So started discussions over the possibility of a craft collective in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Initially we started talking about doing a not-for-profit market, encouraging crafters and the organisations that support them. But we found that we wanted to do so much more! As we did our homework, we discovered that if we become a not-for-profit association, then we could do so much more with the support of local government and community groups.

And so the adventure begins! We have been working hard over the last week to organise membership forms, market venues and a whole lot more. It will trickle out over the next few weeks as we finalise details, but we now have a web site and we are now pimping ourselves everywhere! So help us pimp!
