Maker and Volunteer Badges!

We are holding a Badge party this weekend:

WHEN: This Sunday, 10:00AM                                                                                                   WHERE: We will be meeting at Quelab                                                              WHAT: Create Badges! We are creating badges for All Makers and Volunteers out of the sealing lids for wide mouth canning jars.

You can decorate your own badge and Make a few more. All Makers and Volunteers are invited to join!

Badges will have our main logo to cut and put in place and then we will have all kinds of glitter and assorted odd items to glue into place. We will be using regular glues and hot glues as well. Then our volunteer Betsy will pour resin over the badges and drill the holes for the lanyards and we will have our hand made New Mexico style badges! We will need to put labels on the back to add the maker’s name for their own badge.

Please fill out our Maker-In-Training Questionnaire if you haven’t already and get on the Volunteer list!
