JOIN THE FREEWHEELING COMMUNITY
OUR VENUE PARTNERSHIP
When I first walked into the Makerspace North warehouse with a friend with a fresh idea in my head about the type of market I wanted to run- I was immediately captivated with the rawness of the space and the creativity in the air. There was a lot of sawdust and random shelving to overlook in an off-the-beaten path location... but ultimately I knew I had found something different that could add to the vibe. With a power girl-boss team in place, this collaborative work +event space has transformed into the potential I saw on that first day. Find out more about the team at MSN and the venue here.
MY PASSION PROJECT
After starting Freewheeling Craft (That originally started as The Freewheeling Curator), I was drawn to this idea of conscious buying and how it truly affects you. Not only on a mental level, but how can it affect you physically as well. I discovered so many vibrant entrepreneurs that are making alternatives to the products you buys in big box stores. INDIE Apothecary started out of a passion to curate the overwhelming world of green beauty brands, keeping it Canadian, ethically made + environmentally friendly. We want you to trust that when you shop INDIE you know what you are getting all of the above along with a luxe at home experience not found anywhere else.
We believe that influencers have unique voices to build our local economy, and connect you to stories that you may otherwise never hear about. Over our past events, we have worked closely with such influencers as Amy in 613, YOW city style, Chantsy and What Emily Said (among others). We love creative ways of connecting our maker community to new audiences. Do you have a creative way of collaborating with us? Give us a holla.
Stay tuned for our mega influencer partnerships for CRAFTFEST.

WE HEART YOUR FUR BABIES!
At every event we get the same gorgeous pooches out to support local with their owners. At our last event we thought "why not have a whole heck of a lot of fun with this!"... enter beautiful flower wall backdrop, accessories from PAW Parade, and last but not least owners that were down with having a little bit of fun!
Stay tuned for our pooches photo gallery coming soon!

We owe you so much. Having accepted us last year was inspiring, fun and gave us the necessary faith to never let down. Thanks to you, we began to think that something was possible.
