A taste of what our Sponsors, Partners and Vendors are saying:

What our Sponsors are Saying…

“I Made It! is a great match-up for us, I like to think our riders are creative, and independent. Just like the IMI vendors and their imaginative followers.”

Tim Frank
Director of Marketing and Creative Services
Port Authority of Allegheny County

“I Made It! Market has been working with the SouthSide Works since 2008 and we have enjoyed a unique partnership. Their events, featuring local craftspeople, enable us to promote the local community to patrons of the SouthSide Works and to invite customers interested in our retail, dining and entertainment to get an ongoing and rotating taste of what Pittsburgh artisans have to offer. The market pops in and out throughout the year making the SouthSide Works a destination for local arts enthusiasts.”

Pamelyn McMahon
Marketing Consultant, SouthSide Works

“As a renewing sponsor of I Made It! Market, we can truly say it  is a match made in heaven! TeeRex (CottonFactory.com) is a local Pittsburgh company run by a group of obsessive designers, artists and printers. We proudly hand print all of our unique tees, aprons, hoodies and totes in-house.
Supporting our local economy and Pittsburgh Pride are very important to us. IMI works with a large number of amazing artists and they hold such diverse events that each gathering is a totally  different experience. IMI helps us connect with new audiences and we feel they have developed the definitive blueprint for both indie artists and their partners.”
Samantha and Stephen,
Owners, Cotton Factory

What our Partners are Saying…

“After writing a profile on I Made It! Market, The Original Magazine knew we had to team up with Carrie and the gang for an event on Pitt’s campus. I can’t describe how amazing it was working with them! The Original is all about highlighting the unique and imaginative in Pittsburgh, and I Made It! brought that to Oakland. We’re super excited to continue collaborating with them in the future. I Made It! takes a laid back approach to event organization but  seamlessly blend their creative spirit with professionalism.”

Assistant Editor, The Original Magazine

The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh teamed up with I Made It! Market to present “I Made It! Jr.” in November of 2009. As a presenter of hundreds of public programs for families annually, with many community partners, I Made It! Market was one of our most highly organized, professional and energetic collaborators. Some of the artists even taught workshops for children on the process behind their craft! I Made It! Market is a great example of the vibrant creative community in Pittsburgh that makes this such a great place to be a kid and raise a family.
