Our Story

With a background in jewellery design and manufacturing, Katreenah Jewellery owner Katrina Petryshyn participated in countless markets and pop up events over the years and saw the need for something more. While living in South Africa, she came across a co-op store in Cape Town that sparked an ambition to own her own store; but not just any store!

With an undeniable passion for local and handmade goods, Katrina’s goal was to provide local businesses a place to display their product in a “market like” environment. She wanted the store to be somewhere you could shop great finds just like you would at a market, but also be a place for connecting and nurturing.

After moving back to Edmonton Katrina’s passion and drive was at an all time high and in less than 2 months,
The Makers Keep was born.

The Makers Keep is a strong community of business owners shaking things up and leading the way in the Makers Movement! At TMK, you will experience that well known marketplace vibe in a boutique setting. In addition to creating a welcoming, exciting and inclusive space for our customers, our goal is also to build relationships with local vendors to ensure we are putting forward the best handmade or locally designed products. We make it easy for the consumer to buy local goods everyday, under one roof....and now online!

Fast forward four years, two kids later and countless hours of blood, sweat and tears, Katrina has opened multiple locations and has the honour of working with with hundreds of amazing vendors!

Operations Manager


I am a certified wedding and event planner and own a company called All Decked Out Events, which since being part of TMK has led me to expand in to creating and selling items in our stores. I think it's cool how many people are out there doing creative and amazing things, and a perk of being the inventory OP to is to get to know the makers and hear the stories of how they got started in their businesses!

From an early age, shop local has been a part of my life. Growing up in a small town, I was immersed in supporting community. Some of my favourite memories from childhood were selling my grandmother's paintings at the farmer's market and going around to all the booths looking for homemade treasures. I guess it never left me, because today I am an artist myself and have built my business selling locally.

Being part of a community like The Makers Keep, sparks so much joy for me, I am honoured to be a part of this ever-growing community!

Loves the ocean, not swimming in it or really boating or anything, but just being near it is my favourite. I'm obsessed with Christmas; it is quite literally the most wonderful time of year. Having kids is what really got me to start shopping local; the clothes are way cuter!

I'm a personal trainer by passion! I love all things health and wellness. You can find me going for hikes, chasing waterfalls and adrenaline, when I'm not working for Mala and Me - which is how I was introduced to The Maker's Keep.

I believe in building community and connection which is why I'm a strong advocate for supporting local!

Hi Everyone!
I’m a super bubbly and outgoing east coaster with a passion for green onion cakes, binging true crime documentaries and getting tattoos! I’m a recent graduate from the Social Work program at MacEwan University and love working in collaboration with youth and young adults to promote wellness and strengthen community involvement.
I was drawn to The Makers Keep from the first time I walked in, from the hilarious cards to the salted caramel Caramunchies - I was hooked! I truly believe in uplifting and supporting communities, so working with a local business seemed like a great next step. Hope to see you all soon! 

Frank

Frank is a gender non conforming artist who’s preferred pronouns are they/them. They are a self trained artist, with a handful of elementary art classes under their belt. Frank specializes in portraits but refuses to limit themselves to one form of creating. Art is a therapeutic tool and when it comes to commissioned pieces, Frank has an incredible ability to turn an idea into life. For Frank, art brings light back into the darkest places in our mind. Their passions lie in supporting queer people of colour, the homeless and marginalized youth. Frank adds a unique perspective, while shedding light on mental illness. While there is still a lot of stigma surrounding mental illness, Frank believes that through creative expression and authenticity we can help break the stigma together.
