Qualicum Maker Fest

Posted on 16 Oct 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Time flies when you are getting old(er) and I’m pretty late writing a note about the first Qualicum Beach Maker Fest, organised by the QB Chamber of Commerce and located at the Farmer Market, on Saturday the 23 Sept. Local maker/craft type clubs and individuals were invited to have a table to present their interest to the public. The OCM took 2 tables, created a 4ft poster board for the back wall and had a 3D Printer in use. The Makerspace Nanaimo club setup next to us, with the Flyers on the other side (some personal connections between these two groups), and a new Makerspace operation in Courtenay also came – MakeIt.Zone

The local paper, PQBNews, did a very nice pre and post article and covered our Makerspace in both items. The numbers of crafters taking tables was quite low, but there was a constant stream of visitors and I was talking to some very interesting folks for the whole 3 hour morning.

Thanks to Evelyn, Anne and the team at the Chamber, for organizing this.
