In just a few short days, we’ll be headed to New York to represent Cape Cod Makers at World Maker Faire. We’ve got a lot of excitement and a few great projects in store. The activities from the Rhode Island faire, Squishy Circuits and Tapetricity clothespin crafts, will be returning. We’ll also be introducing a new origami project utilizing donated and recycled business cards. The more cards we can use, the bigger and better our creation can be, so if you’ve got a box of cards with an old phone number or the logo cut off, let us know! We’d be thrilled to take them off your hands.
For all those wanting to represent CCM at the maker faire and beyond, we have t-shirts! If you’ll be joining us in NYC, one of these will be yours! If you won’t be able to come down, but are interested in a Cape Cod Makers t-shirt, they’re available for a $15 donation, just let us know at the next meetup.
