Meet your maker at Make Olympia

At first, I had a little trouble with Make Olympia, the market formerly known as Craft X NW, which starts up for the summer Saturday, July 16.

I kept wanting to think of it as Olympia Made, or Made in Olympia.

It makes more sense if you know that the crafty folk - including artists, performers and those who make food - these days are calling themselves "makers," a name that, to me, conjures up either religious imagery or thoughts of bourbon.

In fact, these makers are artists, crafters, performers and even makers of various foodstuffs, and all of them had enough talent to make it into this juried show. So if you're looking for new clothing upcycled from the old or sauerkraut or jewelry or glass art or soap, Make Olympia could be the place to meet your maker (and, presumably, live to tell the tale).

Make Olympia is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month from July to September. It's on Washington Street between Fourth and State.

Thanks for writing about us! I just found this and LOVE being confussed with bourbon. The Makers of Olympia (and near by) are coming out of the woodwork with their talents.
