Purina ONE provided a welcome cat toy-making haven for the kitty parents of Maker Faire. (And, given the crowds of people that constantly filled the booth, there were a lot of us out there!)

If you showed up at Maker Faire with the desire to learn yarn crafts, spinning, or embroidery, the NeedleArts Zone had your back.

Of course, Maker Faire wouldn’t be complete without a little bit of CRAFT/MAKE love, right? (That’s me meeting Laura for the first time in real life!)
