Hey guys! I’ve been so busy in my shop and at my new job that I haven’t spent a whole lot of time on here lately. And I haven’t been able to share my new job! I’ve been lucky and blessed enough to fall into the right jobs at the right time. I live in Southern Indiana and Jeffersonville, IN opened a new makerspace called Maker13. I accidentally found out about the place by watching a youtube video and the guy said “Oh.. if you don’t have a laser check out your local makerspace” Within a couple of hours and some weird coincidences (or fate) I was directed toward Maker13… which just happened to be having their ribbon cutting ceremony that very day. I’m about 45 minutes away from them but I jumped in my car in just enough time to make it there. I walked in and fell in love. I became a member on the spot. And within a few weeks I was working there. Back in the spring they asked me to be their General Manager. So… that’s where I’m at now.

So… back to my post. LOL. We have this awesome space and I am curious as to if there are any other LJ’s in the area. i’d love to put together a meet up. I’ve connected with one local person already and have really got a lot out of that interaction. So I would love to see if anyone else is interested. Whether it’s 5 people or 50… I’d love to see if we can put something together.

Congratulations on the new job and the promotion right away!
What is a makerspace? Is it where people like us sell our products?

Cheers, Jim

Dan its in Jeff where Gray and Wells auto body used to be. A block before the old industrial nightmare building was and catty corner from the fire fighters museum. So come across either bridge and hang a right and the first road past Hardee’s on turn left on it and it’s two blocks from the turn.
I have thought about trying to get a part time job there but haven’t felt up to it.

Lloyd, we will have to meet up there, or start with a cup of coffee at the Hardees. I always use the 2nd street bridge, ain’t paying that toll.

Same here Dan I like second street bridge but you may want to not go down second street but around to it and turn at the bernos pizza place on to the bridge. Traffic there was pretty bad both times I was over there this week with the road stuff and the Omni building construction. If you want to do breakfast let me know I like Hardee’s and Adrienne and company is right there also the have great cake and cupcakes. That’s who when had make our wedding cake. It’s a good place to eat as long as it’s not on the penny spaghetti night or as it should be called let the kids run wild night.

I’d be up for a meet and greet! I work downtown at the PNC tower anyway, so I’m a pretty short drive away in the afternoons/evenings, and I’ve been wanting to meet more local folks.

Congratulations on your new job Angie and also the promotion!
I did a little search about Maker13 and found this. Looks like a great idea!
