Inspired by Instructables Answered
I always loved making things, since I was a kid. But I’ve never thought that I would become addicted to making things, well, in this case ‘addiction’ can be considered as something positive!
Anyways, I can’t thank instructables enough for everything. Instructables has helped me in improving my crafting skills, becoming more passionate about crafting and becoming more inspired than ever! Ibles getting featured, winning contests, works being appreciated, getting to know awesome makers from all around the world… I was and still am enjoying all of it.
But sadly, I’ve seen only 3 or 4 authors in instructables from my country (Bangladesh). They’ve posted a few ibles but they don’t seem to continue. So, one day I decided to open a maker community in my university. My aim was to gather all the makers from every department of my university and build a crazy maker community and last but not least, encourage them to start sharing their ideas in instructables. When I started to tell everyone about it, some were interested, many were confused, a few were not interested and most students liked the idea but didn’t have time or making/crafting skills. Well, there have been ups and downs but finally… I met a demon (a friend, who thinks that he’s a demon -_- ) and he helped a lot in opening the club. We went through all the formal procedures for opening the club, we named it ‘SUST Crafters’, SUST is the short form of my university name. We’ve requested for a room in the university center to build our workshop. Our summer vacation starts from next week, so we have to wait until the vacation is over to start making things. I’m very glad that finally we have a maker community and I really hope that the members are passionate about making/ crafting.
I want to thank instructables for all this, because the maker club in my university never would have happened if it wasn't for instructables ^_^
