Madrona Supply Co. Will be opening very soon and will be located right at the top of the hill from the Clinton Ferry Terminal. We are all so excited for this!
Madrona tree- with its unmistakable smooth rich orange/red bark, springtime white flowers and fall berries...and all this from an evergreen. Its a memorable tree. It’s why you’ll see us start to transition from MAKE Whidbey to Madrona Supply Co. for the new location! One reason we are very excited about our new space is being able to do production, finishing, and packaging in an actual proper workspace. Moving into a historical building on Whidbey Island, with a rich history. A modern general store full of locally made gifts and goods, Swedish candy, and terrific kids crafts and books with friendly faces!
It’s official, we're growing!
It’s always been our dream to grow our mill into a creative school, and this summer it will finally become reality. We’ve taken over a huge new space right here on South Whidbey just a couple of blocks from the mill.
Our mill and production will stay in its current location and our new space will host creative groups and gatherings, after school arts programs, and weekend classes, workshops, and retreats. In addition to education & events, a range of looms, spinning wheels, sewing machines and other fiber arts equipment will be accessible for individual projects and mentoring.
We love wool! Our goal is to feed the curiosity of all fiber and non-fiber artists alike by sharing our tools, materials and experiences with wool from skirting, scouring, and processing to hand spinning, stitching, weaving, dyeing, and felting.
We are hoping for a Grand Opening weekend August 2nd-4th. Stay tuned on our newsletter and Instagram to help get our little School of Wool off the ground.

The first ferry in Island County especially designed to carry automobiles was the Whidbey I, operated by the Central Ferry Company between Clinton and Mukilteo.
