MudLOVE turned 10 years old on September 1st, and to celebrate we continued our tradition of throwing a party in Winona Lake! It was a beautiful day that included a yoga class, a group of amazing makers, delicious Bento Boxes, and an after party at The Garden.

To mark ten years we made some changes to reflect our roots in the garage. We invited fifteen makers from the Midwest to join us for our first ever Makers Mart. It was a delight to get to know them as they shared of themselves through their goods.

Giving back is a cornerstone of MudLOVE's philosophy, so we were privileged to have many Water for Good staff join us. Thanks to many different ways to give back, we're excited to announce that together we raised $3,171 for Water for Good!

Thank YOU for joining us in the fight against water poverty in the Central African Republic. Water for Good is dedicated to providing all country access to clean water by 2030 and we are here for the long haul.

We also want to thank everyone who helped make this day a success! Specifically we want to thank Julia, Caleb, Courtney, Jim, and the rest of the amazing volunteers who worked so diligently in the weeks leading up to Block of Love. 

Below is a list of the makers, food vendors, musicians, and sponsors. Who do you want to see next year? Let us know in the comments!
