What we're about

If you like to create things in the world -- you might be a maker!

We're a group of people in the Triangle area interested in making new things. We're about learning and teaching and spreading the ideas of making. Oh, and we insist on having fun while we do that!

Sometimes the things we make are beautiful, sometimes they're useful, and sometimes what results isn't quite wonderful. The attempt, the joy of making, is what it is really all about.

This group is open to everyone. Regardless of your expertise. If you sew, or do string art, or wire arduinos to feed your hamster -- that is making. If you paint, do sculpture, work with clay, woodwork, or design and print objects, you are welcome. Some of the most fascinating things come from the cross-pollination that occurs when people from different areas of expertise interact.

This group has been a fantastic place to share ideas and to meet other makers from across the Triangle Area. In the interest of continuing this community of creatives, it is my hope that we can imbue this group with a new passion to gather and grow in 2019. The upcoming meetings will focus on our future as an online & offline community and how we may better connect with other like minded folks in this area.

I encourage you all to participate in that conversation.

Cheers!

Makers Connect Online - Show and Tell about your Halloween Projects!

Hey folks, it's the first Monday of the month. Come join us for a virtual meetup! Join us in our WebEx conference meeting (link available when you RSVP). Come to the meeting and talk to your fellow makers about the projects you've been doing or want to do. If you're stuck on a project, came up with a new way to do something, or found a really cool resource on the web, let us know in the meeting. Tell us what's on your mind! Look forward to seeing you soon!

Makers Making Together Livestream! Lets work on Thanksgiving Projects

Clear out a space on your workbench, crafting nook, garage floor, kitchen table or subterranean laboratory, then break out that Lego kit, the soldering iron, that cross-stitch, that.... whatever and get your webcam/cell phone cam ready! We are going to carve out some time to dedicate to doing what is at the heart and soul of this group...making something while hanging out together! (Virtually) You could take this time to get some help on that nagging Arduino project, do some 3D modeling, grab that apron and bake some bread...whatever you love to do! This is your excuse to do it while being social! :) When you RSVP for the meeting you'll be provided a link to a WebEx on-line conference meeting. Hope to see you there!
