We’ve got a great group of crafty folks setting up shop next week at Maker Faire Detroit. During this week and next, I’m posting their responses to four quick questions I asked them. Here’s the first group, the gals of Handmade Detroit, who have been working hard to make sure Craft Faire next week is a blast!
