Organizers of the Aug. 24 Dover (N.H.) Mini Maker Faire were hoping to attract 30 makers to the first-time event. So they were thrilled when they got more than 50 makers from throughout New England. The event will be held at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire from 10am-4pm. The variety of makers and exhibits ranges far and wide. Here’s a sampling of what’s on to tap.
