Makers Lodge is a Fibre Arts Studio and storefront, which is located just outside of Carleton Place, ON. It is situated on a large country property, and the studio is a 2000 sq ft log building. 

Owned and operated by Christine and her family, Makers Lodge is a community based business which thrives on having makers in studio working alongside each other. Focusing on open stitch time and monthly projects for all to join, this relaxing space provides a place to learn, grown and create. 


Studio Time and Classes

Project of the Month (POM)




Time spent in the studio is a HUGE part of what Makers Lodge was built to achieve – a community of makers of all levels and fibre arts, coming together to share knowledge and learning. 

Find information below on Yarn crafts and Sewing Times. 

Classes are on pause for the summer, and new classes will be added for the fall. 

We encourage all to join the POMs, as these provide a casual “class” time and learning potential, focused around a special project each month. 

We host monthly slipper classes, and several needle felting classes throughout the year (taught by Wendo) that have been a huge success. 

We are also working to expand our line of charity studio events. 

These POMs are quickly becoming an incredible focus and point of excitement throughout the Makers Lodge community. 

There are 3 POMs each month: 

  1. Yarny POM for knit, or crochet 
  2. Sewing POM 
  3. Laser Cut POM, which is typically an embroidery disc. 

A POM is a selected project that we can all work on through the month. Often special products will be brought in, and there are outlined times during our regular studio bookings that are used for focusing on making the projects. 

Any members that complete the POM by the 5th day of the following Month, using Makers Lodge supplies, are entered to win a prize.

Log Life Handmade Slippers

Custom Slippers

Custom slippers are available year round on the website. The order forms have been created to make ordering that perfect pair of slippers as easy as possible! 

Slippers make an incredible gift to people of all ages!

In Stock Slippers

We carry a stock of slippers that are ready for purchase at all times. Slipper stock will be kept as up to date as possible, as new pairs are added to our stock all year round.

We rarely keep stock of adult sized slippers. These are best ordered as custom slippers. 

Slippers that are size 2-3yrs and larger will be made with a leather and sheepskin sole. 


The Frankenslipper series has a large listing added in January or February of each year. These slippers are made with all the same high quality yarns and Canadian sourced sheepskins and leathers, but they are made as “seconds” which may have a few small flaws.

Slipper Making 

Owned by the writer of the Log Life Handmade Sheepskin Slipper Pattern, Makers Lodge carries a large selection of slipper making supplies. 

  • High quality, natural fibre yarns
  • Soles – Canadian sourced medical grade sheepskin and Indigenous sourced Canadian moose and deer leather 
  • High Quality cotton cording
  • Cord stoppers that are JUST the right size 
  • rotating leather punches
  • LDH Scissors- the best option for cutting sheepskins.
