The Bindery
The Bindery is Milwaukee’s resource commons for the book and literary arts. We encourage self-expression via self-production, and promote the unifying impacts of word-based work.

Established in 2016, The Bindery is now preparing to launch its much-anticipated, open access facility for writers and book artisans. Our membership hub will reactivate the former Wisconsin Book Bindery—saving its traditional equipment while ushering in an era of modern amenities, inspirational workspace, shared tools, and expanded community programming. Heritage informs our heading as we reinvent a Milwaukee industrial landmark.

Directed by experienced arts manager and preservationist Zachary Lifton, The Bindery is a collaborative, values-driven, benefit corporation. We seek like-minded Fund Milwaukee lenders to join us as we build a permanent home for words in Wisconsin.

Hometown Bikes
After six years, a new name and new and new direction – Coast in Bikes is now Hometown Bikes!

Hometown Bikes is an experience-based bike shop located in the Riverwest neighborhood. The business offers appointment-based bike service, drop off/pick up services, bike rentals, classes/clinics and workshops. The launch of Hometown Bikes coincides with the opening of the Cream City Hostel.

Hometown Bikes will use funds from Fund Milwaukee to purchase a bike fleet for rentals, rebranding costs, and operating equipment.
