Raise The Roof Fundraiser (Saturday, Jun 10th - Mike )

    12/1/23 WE ARE NOW AT $43,448
    If you have been in the MakerSpace when it rains or thaws you know our roof needs some work. We sought bids last year and they were in the range of $65000-$70000. Considering Murphy and inflation we have set the fundraising goal at $75000.
    The good news is we have received a number of unrestricted donations as well as roof specific donations. We also have a commitment for matching funds. So, our fundraising thermometer now reflects the total of raised and pledged amounts.
    Donations and fundraising ideas welcome.
    Let's get a new roof!

Helical Head (Monday, Jan 2nd - Mike )

    Thank you to all who donated to the DMS Helical Head Fundraiser. We've raised $1810.00 of our $1500.00 goal, and there are a couple of people who committed to donating still outstanding. The extra funds will help our small non-profit provide the best community shop/studio/work space and tools we can afford.

Our 501(c)3 nonprofit provides budget friendly access to tools and equipment for wood working, metal fabrication, laser engraving, sewing, pottery, lapidary and so much more.

New to the idea of a MakerSpace? Come take a tour. Contact Mike at 218-461-0069 to set one up.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is a MakerSpace?
A: A Cooperative Workshop, run like a fitness gym, where a monthly membership pays for shared access to tech tools, electronics, woodshop, metalshop, techshop, crafts, classrooms, fabrics, etc! Similar places have been sprouting up across the country. They are a real community asset driving innovation, education and cooperation. Our biggest asset is the other members.
Q: Who is running this?

A: We bought the building end of 2014, and volunteers have been tirelessly working on improving the space since then. We had our grand opening September 17th, 2016.
