I’m so happy to be part of the first Portland Mini Maker Faire at OMSI this weekend! There will be hundreds of makers there showing and selling their work, and I’ll be doing two events on Saturday.
First, I’ll be on a panel at noon called “Cultivating Craft in Portland” on the Innovation Stage with Diane, Shawn, Chris, and Isaac, so please come ask us some questions or share your favorite resources with everyone. The community here is really special and I’m excited to talk about our favorite parts of this super-creative town with these folks (and hopefully you, too!).
Then, at 2:00, I’ll do a free demo of my Comics Magnets project from World of Geekcraft in the OMSI All-Stars booth. Stop by and make a POW! ZAP! magnet for your fridge, featuring whatever word or phrase (or well, anything you can cut out of felt, really) you have in mind. OMSI will also be selling copies of my book in their shop tent so you can pick one up if you’d like. Thank you to OMSI and Portland Mini Maker Faire for inviting me to participate!
Hope to see you over there!
I also just heard that there will be a fabulous-sounding Geek The Library party in Ferndale, Michigan on Saturday, too – including (drum roll)
Geek DIY with World of Geekcraft: …jewelry, furniture accents, buttons, cross-stitch and even terrariums get the geeky-treatment, embossed with outre/nostalgic images like Super Mario or Dungeons & Dragons. (It gets worse…and by worse, I mean: awesome!)
So if you are in Ferndale this weekend, please stop by, it sounds pretty great!
