Lease Signed for our New IFMS Space

We’ve recently signed a 1 year lease on a 1200 sq/ft location at 235 Jungermann Rd, Suite 112.  This will be our starting location and we plan to move to a larger space, as our numbers grow. Our vision to have enough space to be able to host classes as well as a work space for all manner of activity (art, woodworking, metalworking, 3d printing, etc.) is finally becoming a reality.  Please come for a visit and check out our new space, Opening in June, 2016.
