I've never been; although, it does sound awesome, and more than a little intimidating.


Oh, how I WISH I was going to the fair! It sounds fabulous, and I absolutely love the Makeready journals! What a great way to make use of printer's offcuts - wish I knew of a local printer where I could score those kinds of scraps! I'd be making all kinds of journals!

WOW! This is just the kind of project I'm craving!! I wish I was going to the fair, too!


I must have that book!
Yes, I have been to Makers Faire. I went last year to the San Mateo show. It was one of the most amazing shows that I have ever been to. It has something for everyone! Hippies, scientists, artists, sewers, kids, clowns, fire, steel, robots, oh, the list goes on and on.

I already purchased my tickets for this year's show. Something I strongly recommend, because buying tix at the door will be crazy. The line last year was wrapped around the block. I can't wait to go. The make and takes are off the hook!

I'll be there with a crew of artists, wandering the buildings. My girl Kathy Murrillo (Crafty Chica) will be hosting a Make and Take, and my girl, Tammie Snow of Roxycraft will also have a booth.

Have fun!


I wish I could go to the Faire. It sounds great and I would love to get one of those journals. Unfortunately I live to far away (toronto ontario) so no Faire for me. That is a great idea for reusing waste material from books, they look amazing.


I'll be there, and will definitely look for your booth, Jeannine!

This will be my second Faire and last year was as unexpected as I could imagine. It is INCREDIBLE. The creativity runs so rampant it's virtually impossible to choose one favorite. Plan to stay as long as you can, bring comfy shoes and cash for the food because the food stands are wonderful, varied, and not that expensive! Oh, and bring a bag for all of those notes and business cards you'll collect, a camera, a water bottle, and extra cash if you can for some prize you might discover there. I recommend the Bazaar Bizarre, but plan to hit every building if you can. You will not be disappointed, only happily tired at the end of your day. Can't wait! :)


Oh man, those are gorgeous! I wish I had been there!

Too cool! My husband is a printer! I'm going tomorrow to rummage through the makeready. He already brings home the Mill end paper for the kids to draw on. I've tacked it up to the fence in the backyard and let them paint on it.
