The Visor Project – Smart Eyewear on Kickstarter

November 21st, 2014 by Marissa


There is nowhere else like the Twin Cities Maker Space.  Your intelligence, innovation and humility impresses me more than any other setting that I have experienced.  And you really care, too.  I, finally, figured out where these people hang out!

I am really proud to be a member in this organization and I am proud to introduce my Smart Eyewear on Kickstarter!  Plastic fabricators were intimidated and if I didn’t have access to the tools here, I would still be waiting.

Your feedback is always appreciated!  And so is a $1 to my campaign!

Quarterly clean up is this Saturday, September 27th. PLEASE SHOW UP!!!!!!!!!!!! Many hands make for light work and a clean shop. Come help out for even an hour. We’re going to be cleaning out storage as a big part of this clean up, so if you have anything stored, an you know you can’t make it to clean up, come and clean up your project ahead of time. Everything should be an active project, stored as neatly and compactly as possible, and each piece should be properly labeled with your name, the date, and your contact information. If your project is not in the membership storage area, you need to have permission from the area manager where your project is kept. Anything that is not properly labeled or looks like a hot mess WILL be red-tagged and slated to go away.

Punch and pie……

TC Maker a hit at Artist Maker Day

September 14th, 2014 by SLSolarz

Today TC Maker President, Becca Steffen, Secretary, Bob Poate, and I represented TC Maker at Artist Maker Day on the Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza.

About 700 visitors attended the event where they encountered “TC Maker presents Make Your Own Musical PVC Chair with Susan Solarz“. Although we had 4 work stations, there were people waiting in line for most of the 6 hour event!

TC Maker can provide artists with the space and equipment necessary to produce work.  And we met with a lot of enthusiasm from the arts community.

Thank you to everyone who helped out including Becca, Bob P, Bob G., Sarah B, Steve Skalko, Steven Anderson, Jude Dornisch and Mike N.
