Design enthusiasts and friends Ashley Scherer and Kristin Ruthstrom are two busy moms. Juggling jobs and little ones keep these two on their toes and up to their eye balls in to-do’s! Often times, this means at the end of every packed week, there’s little time or energy left to devote to themselves or their friendships. And that “me” or “friend” time can be what brings us all back to life, giving us the recharge we need to begin again.
With this problem in mind, Ashley and Kristin recognized there was a need for a new and unique place for friends to gather, or simply have a few hours just for themselves. A place to fuel creative juices, have a laugh with friends, maybe enjoy some great wine and food…this could be all the therapy they needed! Thus, The Makery KC was born.
The Makery KC holds events during The First Friday Weekends at the one and only The Painted Sofa in the West Bottoms. Kristin and Ashley want customers to feel inspired amongst their surrounding, and no place could be more perfect thanThe Painted Sofa! Plus, the exceptional shopping never hurt anyone. The Painted Sofa is a beautifully renovated building, and is proving to be the coolest place to be every First Weekend of the month!
The Makery KC provides all the aspects you need for an enjoyable time. Materials and instruction are given so party goers can make something simple, modern, beautiful and on-trend. To top it all off, complementary small bites are served, along with a wine sampling!
