Bellingham’s newest makerspace, The Foundry, is an amazing place to get your projects going. They have a complete wood shop, several makerbots, a laser cutter, a sewing area, and a bunch of other tools. Perhaps more importantly, they’re a community for Makers in the Bellingham area! Seattle is happy to support The Foundry, and we hope you’ll check it out – you’ll be as impressed as we are.
Also, they’re now stocking a sampling of our EL wire and Total Control Lighting LED pixel kits! Folks up in Bellingham, you now have somewhere local to get your glow on! For more about The Foundry, visit their website: http://www.bellinghamfoundry.com/
