We’re so tickled to see Maker Faires springing up all over the place. This weekend, there are two: Phoenix Maker Faire tomorrow and East Bay Mini Maker Faire on Sunday. Check out some of what Phoenix has in store. More on other makers attending and details about the Faire on their excellent website. If you go, please tell us about it in the comments below (and upload pictures there, too!).

    I don’t feel I got my money’s worth @ Phx Faire. Was expecting a lot more after seeing what other cities have done. 

    Disappointed. :(
