Portland Made Launch Party

Craft, art, creativity, and innovation are alive and well in Portland. Manufacturing is back!

Portland Made is a collective of Portland based designers, local goods retailers, and manufacturers. Their mission is to connect consumers to unique, local, and high quality goods and help reconnect designers to the manufacturing process.

Last night, Portland Made hosted their official launch party. Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and State Representative Jules Bailey were in attendance to share their comments.

It was a great event with food from Salt, Fire & Time and beer brewed for the occasion by F.H. Steinbart will be provided. Merit Badge mixed cocktails with local liquors. DJ Leftovers provided the sounds to celebrate Portland’s creative and manufacturing economy.

We were there as well. There was a great vibe. It felt like old world manufacturing gets a MakerBot 3D printer and Arduino lab.
