Final push before soft open

As you probably know, we're planning to have a "soft" opening on Friday evening, January 2nd. At that time, we'll be officially open for business and ready to start taking membership applications. There is a short but significant punch list of jobs to be done between now and then. Some folks are working on specific projects. If you're one of those folks, please ignore this general message.

If you have time between now and next Friday, please be in touch or just stop by the space. Find me. I have the list and will find an appropriate job for you.

We're back!

We're back! Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and our awesome landlord, we have a new home in the old Stereo Sales building in Railroad Square. There's still plenty of work to be done, but we're ready to open the doors and get back to making the awesomeness. Please stop by during the Railroad Square First Friday on January 2nd, check out the new space, and consider becoming a member.

Parking at the new space!

The management of Railroad Square has asked us to let members and guests know that parking is limited to the public streets (all the streets in RRSQ are public) and the spaces in front, and on the side, of our building. One of the spaces in front is reserved for another tenant. People parking in the lots across from the space may be towed.

Making Awesome - New Space!!!!!

I'm happy to report that Making Awesome has secured new space and will be reopening soon. The new space is at 1009 Commercial Street in the Railroad Square. It's a bit smaller than our old space (3100 square feet) but laid out better, and in a much better location. It will be a few months before the space is ready for public events. In the meantime, we'll be asking for help getting the space ready. Stay tuned; more awesomeness is on-the-way. Thanks Richard Menasco of Stereo Sales, our new landlord and a member of Making Awesome.
