Kick off the National Week of Making with a local shop

After last year’s National Maker Faire, we were delighted when the White House declared June 12-18 would be the national “Week of Making." Here at The Grommet,  we're kicking off National “Week of Making” with meetups at local shops from coast-to-coast.

The Maker Faire, is the “Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth” and embodies the pulse of the Maker Movement as hundreds of Makers and tens of thousands of attendees take part in this “family-friendly festival of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness." Now, dedicating a week to celebrate Maker communities nationwide is the perfect way to continue embracing the Maker economy.

National Week of Making

To celebrate during the week of June 13-18, The Grommet is hosting a series of “Maker Economy Meetups” at independent Retailers from coast-to-coast. We're excited to keep growing the Maker Economy with you and other shoppers, Makers, and supporters.
The Meetups will connect local and regional Makers, Retailers, and consumers much like a local farmer’s market, where shoppers get to know the people behind the items they buy. Makers and shoppers will also get a chance to meet local Retailers who are working on the front lines to drive the Maker Economy forward.

We invite you to visit your local retailer for wine, snacks, and to . . .

  • Meet and network with Makers, inventors, and entrepreneurs
  • Share your products, stories and wisdom
  • Learn about products being created in your city or region

And support the Maker Economy by committing to make 10% of your purchases each year from small, independent Makers, inventors, and entrepreneurs at local Retailers and online shops.

    Unfortunately I live in the greater Boston area where the event was on 6/13 but I didn't get the notice until 6/14.
