Lowering the barrier to entry by working together

We are a member-based makerspace in the heart of Portland, Oregon. We bring people together to share workspace, ideas and resources.

Have an idea? Come in and make it yourself, learn how-to in one of our classes, or hire us to make it for you.

Monthly events held on-site for members and the public. Public tours every week.

Start-up and established businesses are all welcome.

Ideation

An on-staff tech designer can help you flesh out your ideas into a product that is both marketable and manufacturable. Their work will become the basis for your tech-packs.

Pattern-Making

We can create a CAD pattern from scratch or modify digital patterns to suit your needs using Optitex software. File formats include .dxf, .pds, .ai and .aama. Gerber available upon request. We also have a digitizer for existing patterns.

Sample-Making

We have two sample makers on staff to create garments and accessories. Our sample room is well-equipped with up-to-date industrial sewing machines and a large cutting table.
