What is the Maker Alliance?

The Maker Alliance is our amazing supporters through Patreon and YouTube. In the Maker Alliance, you get a seat at our table where we ask for your direct feedback, discuss upcoming projects, and give you a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at I Like To Make Stuff.

If you already support us through Patreon or through our Youtube Channel Membership, then you are already a valued member of The Maker Alliance, and we couldn’t do this without you.

What do I get?

By providing support to the ILTMS channel through the Maker Alliance, you empower us to produce more content, take on larger projects, and continue to grow the channel. As a token of our gratitude (pun absolutely intended), you will receive a limited edition annual ILTMS coin for every year that you are a member, starting with September of 2022. In addition to this proof-of-support, you can also enjoy:

Higher tiers will also receive things like access to monthly Google Hangouts with the ILTMS team and their name displayed at the end of project videos.
