Hofman Estates, Illinois -- Get ready to rub some sawdust on your hands and unleash your creative spirit because this September, the Craftsman MAKEcation event is coming to Brooklyn, N.Y. From Sept. 24-27, the ultimate making vacation will put true makers' blood, sweat and tools to the test, letting them sharpen skills and learn new ones.

"The Craftsman brand embodies our drive to make. At our inaugural 2014 Craftsman MAKEcation event, we celebrated creators from all walks of life - whether they were blacksmiths, woodworkers or even famous musicians," said Ryan Ostrom, chief marketing officer, Craftsman. "This year, we're kicking the action up a notch by drawing from an even bigger pool of world-renowned innovators and taking the program to Brooklyn, which is a true maker's mecca."

From now through July 31, Craftsman Club and Shop Your Way members can enter for a chance to win a trip to this once-in-a-lifetime experience by visiting www.craftsman.com/makecation.

For one raw weekend it'll be man vs. matter as "MAKEcationers" fill a gritty warehouse to innovate with muscle, wood, fire and steel. Guests will also get an exclusive first look at the brand's newest products, and have the opportunity to walk the aisles of the World Maker Faire - the premier exhibition of invention, creativity and resourcefulness.

"The Craftsman MAKEcation event is not just about what you learn, it's a place where you can network and rub elbows with some of the most badass tool gurus out there," said James Maclachlan (a.k.a. Mr-Mac), Craftsman Club member and 2014 event attendee. "I feel lucky that I was a part of the inaugural event and can only imagine what the Craftsman brand has in store."
