Holiday Make-A-Thon 2013

Since 2010 Milwaukee Makerspace has partnered with Bucketworks to host a Holiday Make-A-Thon on the Friday following Thanksgiving. Often called “Black Friday”, some people call this sort of event “Makesgiving” or “Make Friday” as we focus on making things for the holidays rather than going out to stores to buy things.

Typically we've made this a free event, and asked for donations to help cover the cost of materials. Unless we get any sponsors, we'll probably continue this trend.

2013 Edition

Please join us for the Holiday Make-A-Thon happening Friday, November 29th, 2013 from 12:00pm to 5:00pm

On the TV

Hey Makers! The Fox 6 TV show “Real Milwaukee” would like to stop by on Wednesday, November 27th, 2013 from 9am to 10am to do some live segments from the Makerspace to promote the event! I will be there by 8:00am and the TV crew is expected between 8:15am and 8:30am. They may do a teaser at 8:40am. Then between 9:00am and 10:00am we should be ready to jump into action for filming. I'd like to get things set up for this all after the meeting on Tuesday, November 26th, 2013.
