Episode #64: Ali DeJohn, Founder of the Makerie

January 4th, 2016

On today’s episode of the Craft Industry Alliance podcast we're talking about creative retreats and event planning with my guest, Ali DeJohn, the founder of the Makerie. Ali DeJohn is constantly inspired by anything handmade, homemade and everything cozy. The smallest, most meaningful moments in life are the most magical to her and she feels really lucky to live in beautiful Boulder, Colorado with her husband and two young children. She started a creative retreat filled with a fabulous, changing variety of modern creative workshops called the Makerie to give people the gift of uninterrupted creative time shared with a loving community that is often hard to carve out of our everyday lives.
