Makerz' Newsflash
November / December 2017

Winter is Coming

The first snowfall has come and gone but leaves are still hanging onto some trees. Despite weather and climate change deniers, winter is coming and the Christmas holidays are fast approaching. Despite our move this couple of weeks, we experienced record sales during Black Friday Cyber Monday weekend this year. Thank you very much to our loyal customers for your staunch support! If you are still shopping for the holidays and are looking for maker technology products, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 289-637-1333 or toll-free 1-855-586-2949, or visit our web store to shop online 24/7.

In review, we attended the 
TAVES Consumer Electronics Show at the Toronto Congress Centre on October 13-15 with our friends from the North Fabtory. On October 19, we showcased drones and 3D printers at the Aurora Chamber Tech Expo at King's Riding Golf Club in King City and got featured by the Aurora Banner. On November 12, we participated in the Make Change Conference at Design Exchange in Toronto and exchanged ideas with many leaders of the Maker movement. 
On November 24, we were creative sponsors for Pecha Kucha Markham Vol. 17 at the Varley Art Gallery in Markham. From November 24-27, we held our most successfull Black Friday Sale ever!

As thermometer readings keep on dropping, we will gather to discuss how to build various maker projects for STEAM education. We will also be offering free intro workshops to customers who purchase equipment from us, including 3D printers and drones. For details on 
upcoming events, check out the Current Events section at the bottom of this newsflash. Also, don't forget to sign up to our mailing list to receive future issues of our newsletter.
