Hey all!

I was lucky enough to go to the Bay Area Maker Faire last year representing Craftster. I had a TON of fun so I'm really excited to go on my own to this one in Detroit! If you've never been to a Maker Faire it's really hard to describe... but I can tell you some of the things I saw when I attended.

  • Multiple full-scale, working R2D2s
  • A Giant sized game of Mouse Trap played with a bowling ball
  • Cupcake go-carts
  • A fire blowing Snail car

Is anyone else going? To my knowledge, SevsOnlyGirl and something_wierd are also going to try to make it. Want to meet up there? I bought tickets for Saturday only, although I won't leave the area until Sunday afternoon. 


Tickets are pre-sale price just through tomorrow! You can get them here: http://www.thehenryford.org/selecttickets.aspx?department=MAKERFAIRE&category=ADMISSION

It looks like it isn't going to work out for us to go. Sad  I have to pick up my sister on the 31st and the 1st is my last day at home before a big trip.  I'm very sad about it. Sad

jungrrl - I live about an hour from there, if you want to come up, holler at me!

I wish I could go but that is the weekend that I am moving to Michigan. On that note is there anything a crafter needs to know about moving to Michigan? Is there much hope of making Craftster friends?

DH, myself, and our two girls may be there. It will depend on weather and sanity, as we would be making the trip from Toronto.

We're going from near Toronto, but we're staying overnight in Sarnia.

I'll be there on Saturday! I have my tickets.  Will anyone else be there that day? Would you like to try to meet up at a specific time? If not, I have pink bangs with a blue streak and a black pony tail, stop me and say hello!  I'm usually the only one like that around but at Maker Faire I guess you never know Cheesy
