-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.  +

-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. +
