The Snohomish County Makers are a group of hobbyist, entrepreneurs, artists, mad-scientists, hackers, geeks, and other technologically savvy persons interested in creating. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and have a local “MakerSpace” collaborative workshop equipped with with modern tools.
Wikipedia has an excellent definition of the Makers:
The maker culture is a contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of DIY culture that intersects with hacker culture which is less concerned with physical objects (opposed to software) and the creation of new devices (opposed to tinkering with existing ones). Typical interests enjoyed by the maker culture include engineering-oriented pursuits such as electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of CNC tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and, mainly, its predecessor, the traditional arts and crafts.
