Welcome to Kollabora

This is a new kind of maker community.

The root of Kollabora is “working together” - we unite makers, crafters, and DIY enthusiasts of all skill levels to get inspired, share projects, buy and sell PDF patterns, and connect with each other and their favorite brands. At the forefront of the maker movement, our diverse community of creative influencers includes some of the most well-known and innovative DIYers sharing high quality, fashion-forward content.

Kollabora was founded in 2012 by Nora Abousteit and its community is managed by Lindsey Ibarra.
