Tieton Made

About 15 miles northwest of Yakima, Wash., is the town of Tieton, home of Mighty Tieton, an incubator for artisan businesses. From their site, “Mighty Tieton’s goal is to help revitalize the economy of the town and region by combining creative and professional skills, and connecting with local resources to build successful businesses involving art, design, hospitality, and recreation.” So it’s only natural that Mighty Tieton would be host to the first annual Tieton Mini Maker Faire, taking place tomorrow, June 29, from 10am to 5pm at the Mighty Tieton Warehouse. The Faire site has been featuring graphic profiles of some of the makers who will be exhibiting. Scope them below, then come meet them in person if you’re in the area!

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
