A Chat with Makersville
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Makersville is a grassroots community of makers who implement programs for boys and girls aged 7–21. We have a variety of maker interests and work with youth on our project or theirs. We seek to help your student find his or her passion.
What is the experience customers can expect?
Access to our tools and equipment (silk screening, soldering, computers, sewing machines, leathercraft tools, LEGO(R) bricks, more), our Makers (specialists in software, electronics engineering, sewing, LEGO creative and technical, fabric arts, graphic arts), and our space. AND lots of volunteers and assistants with projects of their own to share!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I attended the Bay Area Maker Faire in 2011. I knew I wanted to do something that involved a maker community. Makersville is that something.
What do you love most about your job?
I do what I want to do. Every day. I make things with youth, in Lego bricks, in fabric, on the Arduino. I'm learning something new every day.
