CraftStylish Had It Made at Maker Faire Austin 2008comments (5) October 21st, 2008
Wow and Whoo-wee! CraftStylish had a whirlwind of a weekend at Maker Faire Austin. We hobnobbed with the crafty faithful, cheered on robots as they fought to the death, and met up with old and new friends in the DIY community. Plus, corn dogs, rings-of-fire, nonstop Rick Astley, crafty car detailing, DIY robotics of every conceivable action, hands-on craft tutorials in knitting, sewing, spinning, jewelry-making, lace-making, housebuilding, and just about every kind of tactile and techno sensory experience imaginable—and that's just a smidgen of what Maker Faire is all about.
Thousands of people travel from all across the United States to attend this two-day DIY extravaganza for a truly mind-blowing, state-of-the art experience of science and craft. One of the best features of this family-friendly fair is that it is a hands-on adventure. You can learn how to make whatever it is that is making your jaw drop, right there, in a few minutes, from masters of the craft.
The CraftStylish booth was jamming all weekend long. Thanks to all of our members who stopped by to say hi and many thanks to all of the new people we met who were so excited to hear about us—it was the perfect celebration of our six-month anniversary.
Once we're unpacked and have returned to our respective time zones, we'll do a roundup of the Maker Faire crafts. Right now we're Maker-happy, craft-inspired, and Texas-tuckered-out!
Thanks, Maker Faire! We had a ball!
