What is Maker Faire?
Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It's for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things. From the event website: "In a nutshell, Maker Faire is a two-day, public gathering of tech DIY enthusiasts, teachers, students, tinkerers, hobbyists, inventors, science clubs, authors, manufacturers and retailers, print and broadcast media all coming together to share their projects. There will be scheduled performances, demonstrations, and an abundance of hands-on activities, all designed for an amazing and thrilling experience for those who attend!"

Look at my new labels! I ordered them from Hong Kong via ebay and I love, love them!
I hand dyed this linen, and silkscreened this chair I designed. I appliqued the lamp and sticthed the upholstry pattern onto the chair. I'm hoping to have at least a dozen of them done this week.
Covered composition books. The ribbons on the front are pen pockets.
The first printing of my fabric! I'll be selling (hopefully!) some small quantities.
My new favorite thing to make. I love these fabric collages! Still trying to figure out if I'm going to frame them or stretch them over canvas.
House ornaments. They are hanging off of every door knob in my house. So cheery!
I'll keep you posted!
