What we're about

Calling all makers! We're a membership-based makerspace in South Lake Union and we're hosting meetups for makers who love to, well, make things! Our meetups are for tech nerds who want to talk shop, for hobbyists who want to build that idea that's been keeping them up at night, for cosplay enthusiasts who want to stitch their dreams into existence, and anyone who loves to DIY. We'll be hosting events around holiday themes, specific types of technology or materials, and much more. Come make in a fun and easy-going environment where failure is embraced and exploration is the norm.

Upcoming events (4+)

Seattle LaserHeads Meetup

Online event

Are you into laser cutters and learning more about them? Join Seattle Makers and other “LaserHeads” to discuss lasers and laser cutting!

Meetups will begin with some introductions and then we’ll have some open discussion time. Bring your questions and/or expertise and we’ll discuss a variety of laser related topics, including buying, operating, repairing, and upgrading your laser cutter. We'll also open the floor to talk about specific projects that people are working on and answer any laser questions that you may have. Please bring a description or physical example of a project that you have been working on during the previous month to share with the group.

We will be meeting the 4th Monday of the month via zoom for the time being. Once things are back to normal, we will be hosting in person at Seattle Makerspace with the option to attend virtually. This meetup will be facilitated by at least one staff member from Seattle Makers and there will be access to two 90 Watt laser cutters.

Ages 8 and up and all experience levels are welcome. Under 16's must be accompanied by a guardian.

Sew and Tell Meetup

Online event

Calling all folks interested in sewing projects! Looking to share what you're working on, get advice on a sewing project or just chat about sewing in general? We’ll share ideas, talk strategy and help each other trouble shoot.

Meetups will begin with a “show and tell” portion where everyone can show the group their machine or favorite sewing gadget before moving on to a discussion portion. During this time, we’ll open the floor to talk about what people are working on and areas where they’re seeking advice. We’ll round off with suggestions for future topics, so bring your ideas!

Bring your Sewing machine, favorite sewing gadgets, latest project, and future sewing related topics you’d like to discuss.
