the makerie scholarship!

We are elated to announce the very first ever Makerie Scholarship! Old Glory Antiques and Common Threads are generously teaming up to offer one full Makerie package (excluding any travel costs) for the 2011 event. For the next two weeks, we are inviting nominations for a very special someone who would embrace the spirit of the Makerie! Do you know someone who is deserving of a creative weekend away, but maybe is unable to make the financial commitment at this time? The eligibility requirements to enter are simple (read none!), as we will work off the honor system here! All we ask is that you write us a letter via email detailing why this person would be a beautiful fit for the scholarship and what attending the Makerie would mean to them. (And YES, feel free to nominate yourself!) Please know that all entries will be kept confidential, and be sure to include your contact information.


Scholarship Application Process:

Thurs, Jan 27   Email all nominations to  
                   (please use 'makerie scholarship' in the subject line)

Thurs, Feb 10   LAST DAY for nominations!

Mon, Feb 14     Scholarship winner notified! Yippee!!


We would be grateful if you could pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested in applying!

A HUGE heartfelt thanks to Old Glory Antiques and Common Threads for making this all possible.


  1. If you prefer to sumbit a handwritten letter, that is totally fine too! It just needs to arrive in our mailbox by February 11.

    Our address:

    PO Box 4810
    Boulder, CO 80306-4810

  2. This is such a great thing to do for someone who wouldn't be able to afford it. I know a lot of people who would love this kind of retreat but couldn't even think about spending that kind of money right now while things are so difficult.

    Thanks for providing this opportunity.

  3. What you are doing is wonderful.
    Just wonderful.
    I hope to go one day.. I honestly do.
    I know It would be so so so good for me... in so many ways.
    What you are doing is such a good thing.
    I have emailed you.. I will say a prayer and a wish I am chosen to attend! hugs to you this night,

  4. Oh how I wish I had seen this sooner, but I"m so happy that you're able to offer a scholarship to someone! I hope that whoever you chose has an incredibly wonderful time!

  5. hasn't forgotten about this and is saying a silent prayer today. xo
