Modern Makerie

Modern Makerie was formed a bit by accident on the 21st of may, 2016. (thanks, text messages for archiving our lives so well). a sweet friend asked me to make an essential oil bag for her purse. she wanted something cute that wouldn't take up a ton of space. that's when modern makerie was born. 

Who we are

I'm Kate Lyons and this handsome man is my husband, Jonathan.  The little firecracker in the middle is our sweet daughter, Adventure. We've been married 5 years. Our family also includes a 194lb horse dog, Bosch (Not pictured, obviously).

I have a bachelor's degree in Art/Art History. Before starting grad school, I decided to take a break. halfway through the semester, I got antsy and decided to go to Culinary School. My focus was in chocolate work. Luckily, I had the fortune to run a local chocolate shop for 5 years. On September 1st, 2016 I left the chocolate world and started sewing full time. I'm so happy to be where I am and so thankful for your support.
