Maker Meet Up
Meet Up at Thursday, April 12, from 6-8pm, at Pineapple Sails at 2526 Blanding Avenue, for those interested to learn more about the Alameda Mini Maker Faire. Many thanks to Pineapple Sails, a custom sailmaking facility, producing small volume, high attention, quality sails, for hosting this free event.

History
The Alameda Mini Maker Faire was born out of a desire to celebrate and support Alameda’s growing maker community. At this all-ages event on July 8, makers, DIY enthusiasts, businesses, artists, and crafters will showcase their work. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience interactive exhibits, meet like-minded individuals, and be inspired by the creativity and innovation of the maker community in Alameda and beyond.

This event is brought to you by the City of Alameda, in partnership with the Downtown Alameda Business Association (DABA) and West Alameda Business Association (WABA), and with special thanks to our flagship sponsor, The General Storehouse at historic Building 8 at Alameda Point. The General Storehouse is the launchpad for all things creative — including premier kitchens, maker space, and loft style work/live units, which are all currently under construction at Alameda Point.
