An All New For the Makers

An update on where we are and where we are going:


For the Makers started because I wanted to make DIY fashionable, accessible, and easy. We put out a survey earlier this year and listened to what you had to say. You want more, and you want it to be better, faster, and with a price point that hits high and low. We took a look at the business and figured out that while our monthly subscription is the best in the industry, it is also one of the most expensive. In order to lower our price we would have to compromise our exceedingly high standards for quality and originality, which is not something we are willing to do. With that in mind, we’ve decided to say goodbye to our subscription service so we can focus more on what we do best.

Today we launch an all new For the Makers experience! We are going to have more content and DIYs, more project kits and materials that you can buy à la carte in our shop, and more tutorials that focus on making the moments in your life more special with DIY.

I want to thank you for making with us over the years and for growing with us. For always telling us what you want because we are a community of makers who grow together. We are still committed to bringing you the best and most unique experience in DIY materials, tutorials and inspiration. I love learning with you and seeing all of your DIYs come to life. I hope you’ll continue with us into this next chapter. I invite you to check out the new site, give me your thoughts, share the news and get your hands ready to make more of the things you love.

Thank you and Happy Making,
Janet Crowther
founder + ceo
