We curate an experience designed to encourage exploration, learning, friendships, and a better appreciation of local culture for an all-inclusive community.

– Craft Notes Mission

Now, more than ever, I want people to feel connected to their community and to eachother.

Having new experiences, trying new things, making new friends, and supporting authentic, hard-working people; these joys are universal no matter who you are.

Our mission is to use technology for actual good. To help you weed through the clutter and introduce you to authentic, home-grown exceptionalism.

– Matt Dowgwillo, Founder


A city defines itself by its industries, art, architecture, and food & drink.  At the center of local culture are the creative artisans and craftsmen that combine their skills with local ingredients, local knowledge, and local art to create something wholly unique and special. To us, this is the definition of “craft.”

We curate an experience designed to encourage exploration, learning, and friendships, and a better appreciation of local culture.

What goes into the products we consume? Where are they from? What makes something better than another? What are the new trends and flavors of the future? How and by whom is it made….?
