Recently we announced an exciting new development to the maker movement that’s sweeping the country – our partnership and support of the Martha Stewart American Made program. We believe in the importance of making and crafting beautiful, unique products, and that’s a part of what American Made is all about.
We’re excited to see that many of our friends and partners are entrants in the American Made program and we encourage you to vote for your favorites – we’ve created a quick guide, and we will be featuring these talented makers in depth over the coming weeks!
