Have you ever had a tough time making new creative friends in your community? Lots of makers have! The wonder of the internet is that it allows our global handmade/small biz community to meet kindred spirits all over the world but sometimes we’d really just like a friend near by to meet up with for tea, make dates, business collaborations and hang outs. Often we don’t even know where to start making a friend like that or shyness keeps us from reaching out to someone we’d like to meet. Enter Match + Maker!
Inspired by recently being matched up with a local artist, Mariko (check out the story + studio tour here) by Janine of Uppercase Magazine + my long time love of connecting people who I think will love each other. Our new series will match up compatible makers for visits and an interview/studio tour to be published on OMHG. We get a cool post, you both make an awesome new friend, and the creative community gets a little bit friendlier! This service is open to all makers/creative entrepreneurs of all levels and abilities who are open to making a new offline friend. Just fill out the survey below, share it with your networks & wait for your match to be made. Ready?
Just fill out our Match + Maker survey to get started!

Hooray, thank you for joining in (you did, right?)! Once a compatible match is found I will email you both to make the introduction and share info about how to submit your Match + Maker posts so you can tell us all about your new friendship.
I would love to hear what you think about Match + Maker in the comments & now let the matchmaking fun begin!
