Volunteer Day this past weekend was successful!
THANK YOU to everyone who showed up to care for your makerspace. The team organized electronics a bit. Stained glass used the time to organize the glass stock. Pottery team added wheels to shelves and tables. Textiles is working to swap in a new table to support the 6-thread embroidery machine. The paint booth found a new home (still in progress, and not yet operational). Woodshop focused on taking apart the dust collection – a part arrived today for repair. They also re-organized a tool bench and utilized wall space for tool storage. We pulled weeds and cleaned up trash along the property.
So much was accomplished! Thank you for being here. We look forward to having more events like this in the future.
Mark your calendars! We are bringing back the carnival inspiration this summer for our Open House fundraiser.
We have food trucks and a beer vendor booked for the event. Our music performance is scheduled. We plan to bring out all the carnival fun – including dunk tank, face painting, cotton candy, and more!
We need volunteers to make the day successful – will you help us? Sign Up HERE.
We’re looking for more makers to be vendors at the market for this event. No cost to members. More info and sign up HERE.
