Merrymeeting Makers Night

  • January 1, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • TBD

Merrymeeting Makers grew out of a Code for Maine initiative to organize a Makerspace in the Brunswick-Bath-Topsham-Harpswell region.  While plans for the establishment of a Permanent Maker space in partnership with the Harpswell Coastal Academy are close to realization,  the Merrymeeting Makers have been formed to organize regular events at the Topsham Public Library where like-minded inventors, hackers, makers and other creatives can connect and share ideas.

 Link to a Merrymeeting Makers web site will be added soon.

 Information about the permanent space in Harpswell can be found at- https://sites.google.com/a/codeforamerica.org/harpswell-makerspace/

    FYI- I now have the key to the Harpswell space and I'm hoping to have the draft vision/statement of purpose completed by tomorrow,, so I'll be sure to post the link.. I also created a Github Organization from which we'll be able to manage memberships, projects and other administrative tasks- https://github.com/organizations/HarpswellMakerspace
    Oh and one last thing... WE SHOULD HAVE A 3D PRINTER BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK!!!!

      Check it out- https://printrbot.com/...­ . The only catch is it has a relatively small print size. However, you can get an upgrade kit for $75 and it'll print at 185mm x 100mm x165mm. So after all is said and done it specs out comparable to a $5000 printer only costing about $500 including the upgrades.

      Doesn't look like anything's open... But I can set up a separate Meetup if anybody would like to meet before next week.

    Hi, John. The library is closed, but Andrew mentioned that he'd still like to meet.

    Andrew, will you get in touch with John and let him know if you still want to get together?

    Am I to assume the event tonight has been postponed to 1/16?

  • Andrew J.

    Yes, I just saw that the library will be closed tomorrow. However, I will be in town running errands in the afternoon, and I do have quite a few projects that could use some input, so if anybody else is up for meeting somewhere else, I'll be game...

    Oh, and here is the website: <http://merrymeetingmakers.com/>;. Needs to be updated. Maybe we can do it together on January 16.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
