The last picture from last night. So happy to pose for pictures!
Day one was a blast! Such an amazingly diverse Maker Faire. I’ve noticed that there are a lot of costumes here, and a lot more art than I’m used to seeing! The goal of teaching 1,000 people to make a shirt seems like it will get passed easily, the t-shirt area was jam packed all day long. The pictures above this point are from day two.
