Renew for 2017

Dear 2016 Founding Members, Volunteers and Donors,
"Thank you" just doesn't express enough my appreciation for your support of the Makers Market. You invested in an idea to create a makerspace for our community through your membership, volunteerism and donations.
Because of your contributions, we are entering 2017 with a solid foundation of countless wonderful experiences and project adventures! This has happened because of you. Know that you have made a difference.
With deep and sincere gratitude, Thank you - Erica

Looking forward to 2017

With all we have lined up for 2017 - programs, field trips, workshops, moving, updates, meetups, and MAKING - we are getting ready for one awesome year, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We have a lot of decisions to make, and we need lots of hands on deck to keep things rockin'. Please let us know if you would like to become part of our organizational team. We need help organizing as a nonprofit, finding our next location and enhancing our outreach.

If for any reason our next location and offerings do not meet your making needs, we will be happy to refund the prorated amount of your remaining membership.

Renewing Membership FAQ:

Are you moving to a new building?

Eventually… But for now, we're staying put at our current building until at least April 1, 2017. Downtown Ludington will be welcoming a new development at the 200 block of Ludington Ave., with construction beginning sometime in the summer of 2017. The development will provide more commercial and residential space, and our current building will be demolished to make way for this addition to our community. Learn more from the Ludington Daily News.

Where will you move?

Our next location is not confirmed, and there are lots of great possibilities that will be explored over the winter and spring months. Plans will be announced once the next location is secured, with a priority to remain in downtown Ludington.

Who is a "Founding Member"?

Founding Members are those who purchased an annual/monthly membership or Day Pass at any time during 2016.

Is the Makers Market a nonprofit organization?

Not yet. The Makers Market of Ludington is an entity of createXchange, L3C (a Michigan low-profit limited liability company). By starting as an L3C, we have learned the specific needs of the community for Ludington’s first makerspace. We are moving towards a non-profit model for 2017, with changes and opportunities within our management structure.
