Over 45 makers from Iowa, Indiana, and Missouri are converging on the Lindale Mall tomorrow, Saturday, February 25th, for the inaugural Cedar Rapids Mini Maker Faire.
The fair is being organized by Jim Jacobmeyer and other members of Epicenter (a Cedar Rapids makerspace), and the Cedar Rapids Habitat for Humanity Restore. Epicenter was founded in 2011 as a resource for area do-it-yourselfers, creatives, entrepreneurs, inventors, and free-thinkers.
The Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore is a store for recycled, re-used, and re-purposed materials. These two organizations share classroom space and tools, and have naturally become a gathering spot for makers in the larger Cedar Rapids area.
If you’re anywhere in the vicinity, get on out tomorrow to Lindale Mall between 10am and 4pm!
