Focusing on the Indie Maker
While I Heart Indie Markets (I.H.I.M.) is a platform that helps makers grow their business with indie markets - I Heart Indie Makers focuses solely on the maker themselves.
The one thing about the handmade community that is arguably the best thing, is that as a group of people, we largely just want to see one another succeed. Makers tend to be the biggest cheerleaders and customers of other makers. When you create something and understand the time and energy it takes to make something from scratch, you learn to appreciate the process and craftsmanship behind the entire handmade community.
In honor of the modern indie maker, I Heart Indie Makers was born. Through this creation we have multiple tools to help indie makers feel connected to the indie making community, including a chance to share their story, give advice and receive advice, and meet up in person to make new friends, collaborate on projects and build community.
