Do you want to make a hat for Derby? Do you need to use a sewing machine or glue gun for your project? Come to the hackerspace on Wednesday, April 18 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm for Open Sew.

Spring Cleanup 2018

//

What: The “Purge” Spring Cleaning
When: This event has been postponed until Saturday, 14 April 2018, 9:00am – 1:00pm

It’s that time of year again. We’re clearing out abandoned projects and the boneyard. We’ll have a dumpster and a determined attitude.

If you want anything from the boneyard, you must take it home. (Okay, technically, as long as you get it off LVL1 property we don’t really care where you take it, but you can’t leave it here.)

The wood shop should not be used for storage. If you have materials in there either take them home or make sure they are labeled with your name and put into member storage. If they don’t fit on your shelf, there is a designated area along the back wall for storing wood.

Everything in member storage should either be on your shelf or labeled with your name and should be things you are actively working on. If it’s an old project it is subject to removal to make room for active projects.

Pizza will be provided for dedicated helpers!
