For John, BLUF: This is a good development.
One of the things I miss from my time living on or near an Air Force Base is the availability of "hobby shops". I have taken my car to the local base Auto Hobby Shop to do this or that work, with the tools available at the Hobby Shop. I have done wood working at the Woodworking Hobby Shop. I have made crèche members (the Three Wise Men) at a Ceramics Hobby Shop. Then there is the photo hobby shop, back when pictures involved film and chemicals. And, not just me, but my wife and children. All good.
I could never have afforded all the different tools and facilities needed to do all those different things. And, there was free advice and help.
But, where are such "hobby shops" in the Greater Lowell Area? Now we may have a solution to this lack of hobbyist opportunities.
Here is an article on Lowell Makes from The Boston Globe.
See you there, at Six.
