When my husband and I moved to Fort Collins in 2013, I couldn’t find other crafters and makers to hang out with. It took me three years to find a sewing buddy! I don't want others to feel as lonely and isolated as I did.

This newsletter is a call out to my people. I want to help strengthen and expand the local creative community. Maybe you’re the one knitting at a brewery. Or you might be geeking out over night photography. Or does your idea of a perfect winter day include hot cocoa and embroidery in the ski lodge?

Whatever your craft love is, join us and invite your friends!

About me

Hello, my name is Ayelet! My main craft of choice is designing and sewing my own clothes. I’ve been sewing for 16 years, but it’s not my exclusive craft. I’ve also dabbled in embroidery, crochet, dyeing, and pottery. Most days I wear my own handmade outfits and jewelry gifted to me by my grandmother from her travels.

In my professional life, my background is in marketing, project management, and community building. My wonderful husband supports my dreams and aspirations with his woodworking and cooking, and I'm a mother to a three year old and two tuxedo cats.

I can't wait to meet and talk with more creatives here in NoCo!
