If you’re anywhere near Los Angeles this Sunday, November 18, we hope you’ll visit the campus of Los Angeles City College for the second annual Felt Club: XL Holiday event. We’re featuring handmade amazingness from over 70 artists, crafters, and designers from SoCal and beyond–many of whom will be offering holiday-exclusive items.
If all that isn’t enough to grab you, this year we’ve also got the all-new Maker Square area, a mini version of Maker Faire, hosted by the staff of Make and Craft magazines. The Maker Square portion of Felt Club will feature people like Syuzi Pakhchyan and her Soft Circuits LED felt holiday ornaments, Mister Jalopy, who will demonstrate his Mobile Drive-In Movie Projector (featured on the cover of MAKE Vol.11), Jason Torchinsky’s “Super Stick“, a 5-foot tall Atari 2600 joystick (which actually works!!), Jed Berk and his Blubberbots, and many more. In short, you won’t want to miss your chance to hang out and meet all the Makers at Maker Square! Link.
We’ll also be giving away killer door prizes from our vendors and sponsors (sneak peeks are available in our Flickr pool), and swag bags will be given to the first 250 people through the doors. (You can increase your chances of being one of them by purchasing an advance ticket at one of our seven ticket locations throughout LA.) We’ll have food available too, from local fave Auntie Em’s Kitchen–plus music from DJs Dirty Robot and Lance Rock (host of Nickelodeon’s hit kid’s show Yo Gabba Gabba).
