Both CRAFT and MAKE magazines were recognized for Maker Faire with a gold medal for Best Series of Events from FOLIO: magazine in their 2009 FAME (FOLIO: Awards for Magazine Events) Awards. I love Maker Faire so much, because it’s a chance to see CRAFT and MAKE come to life, and to connect with other readers. Congrats to the Maker Faire team for this great recognition.
Maker Faire Bay Area will be here in just under 12 weeks. The Call for Crafty Makers is out, and I can’t wait to see what cool stuff the Bay Area folks have to offer. As Gareth at MAKE points out:

This year’s focus is Re-Make America, inspired by President Obama’s call for all of us to participate in rebuilding America. We’re looking to showcase “the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things.”

This is your chance to connect with other crafters, share ideas and leave incredibly inspired. I hope to see you there!
