Truncated Business Hours UPDATED!

Adding additional hours! MAKS is currently open for order pickup on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11-3. Limited browsing will be allowed during open business hours, to ensure your safety we will be limiting the number of customers allowed in the store at one time. You may call ahead to find the best times.

Stay Safe and Healthy

Wash your hands like you just finished
a bowl of chocolate ice cream and
you’re about to knit with $200 yarn.

Stay safe and healthy, knit friends.


We are now accepting online orders available for shipping and curbside pickup during our truncated business hours.


Assistance Requested! Additional Masks Needed.

Liza Crane has requested if anyone can do another round of masks they are looking for donations. They will soon be ramping up the local in-person clinics and will require masks for adults and children. You can mail the masks to Liza Crane at 615 E Minnesota St. Indianapolis, IN 46203, or drop them off at the shop.

There are tons of online resources for patterns and her only request was that they are in both children and adult sizes.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!


Stay safe and knit (or sew) like there’s no tomorrow!


Whats Happening At MAKS

Hey Everyone,

I wanted to give you all an update on some of the things we’ve been working on behind the scenes at the shop. We are in the home stretch of getting our yarn stock online. This has been a big item on Susan’s wish list and its very near completion. Once we finish the yarns we’ll move on to notions and some other special items we’d like to do with the online store. Just a few things:

  • I’m in the process of reloading the color cards for the yarns. Now as you select an item from the drop-down, the color you selected will appear in the main window. Please note, we are using manufacturer photographs and I am aware that some of them do appear a little blurry. We’ll work on that as we get better pictures of the products. It does seem like the smaller thumbnails are nice and clear, so you will be able to see the texture and color variations with some accuracy.
  • We are also going to be connecting the shop cart system with Instagram so that when Susan posts her project pictures, you should be (in the near future) able to link into the cart and pick up the necessary products to complete the project for yourself!
  • Another wish list item is for us to be able to offer patterns, either our own or Ravelry patterns through the shop. As soon as we come up with an easy way for you to do so, we will make that happen as well.
  • Susan is gonna be a YouTube creator. She and her girls are working on some videos that I will link into the site about techniques for projects she’s working on or been requested to show.
  • We’ve had a test group in the shop cart and have gotten a lot of great feedback on how things work or should work to make it easier for you to order, but I’d like to open that up to you as well. I review the feedback from the site and thought this might be a great way for you to let me know what you think of the shopping cart or anything you’d like to see us add to the functionality.

We also have a few coupons available for use on the shopping cart…so for the next 19 orders, use the coupon code MAKSONLINE at checkout and I’ll take 10% off your order. We are shipping and doing curbside pickups (if you’re local) for ordering.

Our MAKS friends community is growing with the addition of the new online store and I just wanted to say thank you to all of you that have ordered, given feedback, and supported Susan lately. SHOUTOUTS to: Cindy from Indy, Liza from Indy, Rebecca from Indy, Betsey from CA, Amber from IA, Jenna from MN, Christina from UT, Tamsen from WY, Charlotte from TX, Christie from OK, Stephanie from Fishers, and Lisa H from Indianapolis (Susan’s very first online order). Our MAKS friends are the best!

We are looking forward to the day we’ll be able to restart classes at the shop, but we’ll only do this when we’re fully sure that everyone’s safety is maintained. Stay tuned for more information.

We’ll have new posts soon for projects that Susan is working on and we’ll keep you up to date when we check off each item on our to-do list. Come see us at the online store. And let me know what you think! (MAKS FEEDBACK)

Thanks for reading! Knit like there’s no tomorrow!

What IS the In-Store Retreat?
The In-Store Retreat is a weekend of meeting up with old friends and making new ones while working on your latest yarn project without the distraction of home and work.

Feel free to join us all weekend or just for an hour or two. We look forward to seeing you over the weekend!

What is an Over-Nighter?

An over-nighter is a night we set aside for our favorite yarn projects. Over-nighters start at 7:30PM and go on through the evening until the last person goes home. For $20 we provide pizza and drinks. You bring a snack and your latest project to work on. Sometimes we work on a service project, so be sure to check the blog before you join us. Can't wait to see you at our next over-nighter!
