Located in Jeffersonville, IN in the heart of an area newly designated as an arts district and in the middle of rejuvenation we found Maker13. Maker13 is a for-profit makerspace where members join to make products for their own use, for their business use or to sell as a business. The embroidery machine is a big hit, getting solid usage and their laser cutters are almost always busy. Users range from a local real estate agent who makes special closing gifts at the space to folks whose goods are for sale on Etsy and other websites.
Tool/equipment usage is all taught through project based classes and completing a class gives members the ability to use the equipment for their own personal projects.
The space is also very active in the community ( see the photo of a giant light bright board under construction for an upcoming community event) and have a solid but growing membership who sometimes just meet for maker chat over coffee and a snack.
We are happy to have this group in our Indiana Maker family and look forward to continuing to see great things happening here.
