Dueling workshops: Which one’s for you? Wholesale or the law. Those are the topics of two afternoon workshops at The Maker City Summit on September 23.
We're proud to feature local maker and business owner Jesse Barlow, founder of Blacksheep printing.
Before joining us for the Summit panel: Strategic and Sustainable Growth, moderated by Andrew Edens of Smokey Mountain Vintage Lumber, we caught up with Jesse to learn more about his personal journey with Blacksheep and how his business has grown successfully in spite of the challenges he faced.

We caught up with Alyssa in preparation for her participation in the panel Ready, Set, Sell!, a 1:15 pm session moderated by David Harmon of Native Maps. We asked a few questions about her journey in creating Retropolitan and what it's like to be responsible not only for her own sales but providing an atmosphere of profitable sales for her vendors.
