Come see me at Maker Faire this month!


I am very excited to announce that I’ll be at Maker Faire again this May! I’ll be set up in a glitter workshop at Duncan’s ILoveToCreate booth, plus – on Saturday I’ll demo “Secrets of a Crafty Chica” where I’ll share and demo all kinds of different ways to use everyday craft supplies (other than what they are intended for!).

I’ll be signing copies of my new book, Crafty Chica’s Guide to Artful Sewing: Fabu-Low-Sew Projects for the Everyday Crafter. Also joining me is my hubby and all-around Mantastic Crafter, Patrick Murillo, and our kids – DeAngelo and Maya.

We are also bringing our five Chihuahuas!

Just kidding! The pups are holding down the fort at home…

Maybe you’re thinking – what is Maker Faire, anyway? Maker Faire is:

The World’s Largest DIY Festival

A two-day, family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, CRAFT, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, food, music, science and technology. It’s geared towards five topics: arts, crafts, engineering, green, food, music and science. There are areas for each category with a multitude of “makers” showing their ideas.

From the web site:

4th Annual Maker Faire Bay Area: Re-Make America

Following on President Obama’s call to “begin again the work of remaking America”, Maker Faire 2009 will be organized around the theme of Re-Make America. Held in the San Francisco Bay Area on May 30-31, Maker Faire celebrates what President Obama called “the risk takers, the doers, and the makers of things.” The fourth annual Maker Faire will showcase individual creativity and grassroots innovation in the largest festival devoted to DIY culture and technology in the country.

See you there!!

Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy 🙂
