Maker Faire Bay Area is less than a week away! Wish I could be there!

I recently had a chance to attend the Maker Faire in Austin with my children and grandchildren. It was a pure joy. Although much smaller than the Bay Area Faire, they had a little of everything there. Paper making to robotics. And of course, fiber arts . . . people teaching knitting and crochet . . . and weaving. These were just volunteers. I asked one of the ladies if she had a shop or was part of a guild. She said she was there just because she wanted to be there ... to share her love for knitting.

The kids and adults all got involved. In fact, my son-in-law, a born "creative sort," was as excited about it all as the kids were. I especially enjoyed playing a trash can-beat box with my 4 year old grandson. We were grooving big time!

So, if you get a chance, and are in the area, don't miss Maker Faire this weekend... And while you're there, stop by the NeedleArts Zone and see what's stitching!!
