Maker City Meetup

  • February 21, 2019
  • 6:00-8:00PM

Category: Festivals & special events

Our next Maker Meetup is set for February 21 from 6-8pm at Marc Nelson Denim, 700 East Depot Ave.

Creative collisions happen when makers, artisans, small-scale manufacturers, and entrepreneurs get together! Maker Meetups are open to local makers and anyone interested in the maker movement. Connect with other makers and local creatives and learn more about the exciting work being done in our area!

Marc Nelson Denim is a local small-batch craft denim brand. Their cut-and-sew shop was founded to bring handcrafted denim manufacturing back to Knoxville. Their plan was never to stop at just denim. MND is passionate about bringing their customers as many artful indie designer products as possible, which means they're no stranger to collaboration. They have many products that are made right here in East Tennessee by small business owners. Come see how they work and what they do.

Several makers featured at MND will be at the Maker Meetup, including:
• Ben of Anchors Aweigh Hair Co.
• Colleen of Little Firebird Designs
• Joanna of Joanna Warren Designs
• Karen of Noggle Leather & Designs

This Maker Meetup is made possible + extra special by our generous sponsors:
• Fox & Fogarty Realty Executive Associates
• Elkmont Exchange
• Sugarlands Distilling Company
• City of Knoxville
• Knoxville Entrepreneur Center

Come check it out and visit a while!
