Annual Art Auction

Just a reminder our annual art auction is September 28. It’s a highlight of the year and I hope everyone is busy working on amazing pieces to show off what we’ve done and raise money for MakeICT equipment. Talk about our auction or invite your friends on facebook in preparation for the event.

August Featured Maker: Scott Sullivan

Scott considers himself a “general all around crafter”. He knits, crochets, weaves, embroiders, makes brooms, does leather work, gardens, and sews. He is the treasurer of the CSMA (Central States Metal Artisans) blacksmith organization.  He joined MakeICT to have access to a woodshop, metal shop and pottery studio, but when contributing author Jenni Alonso first met Scott, he was hanging out with the Textile Tribe repurposing old shirts into aprons. Read more about Scott on our blog…
