MAKE and CRAFT at Crafty Bastards!

This Sunday, September 28th (10am – 5pm), the 5th annual Crafty Bastards! Arts & Crafts Fair will take place at the Marie Reed Learning Center, in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC. This is an awesome event, put on by the venerable Washington City Paper. Our very own CRAFT is a sponsor this year.

CRAFT and MAKE will be on hand, at the Craft: Zine Maker Square (booth #128 on the tennis courts). I will be there, along with my MAKE contributing editor and Make: Books cohort Brian Jepson, and we’ll be conducting LED Throwie and Button Ring workshops (that’s right, come watch me and Brian craft! :-) Craftzine contributor Teresa Levy of Sewing Stars will also be with us, as will local multimedia designer Esti Gerson, who’s helping us put together the whole Maker Square shebang.

We’ll be doing workshops, selling Maker Shed merch, and talking up MAKE, CRAFT, and the maker movement. Should be loads of fun, so stop on by!
