Maker Faire was a Blast

Saturday was my first Maker Faire, and I was honored to be there as an official maker! Rebecca Reitz, the librarian at the New York Hall of Science (where the faire was held in Queens) had invited me to have a table at her library for the day. It turned out to be a great spot—many people were heading indoors once the thermometer hit 80.


Helping me out all day long was my great friend Jen. I could not have been there without her! She manned the table while I was out doing my toy knitting demo at the CRAFT stage (which went really well, much to my relief), and she was way better at talking up my book than I was.


Librarian Rebecca is a fiber artist herself (check out her blog)—she had a display of her beautiful pieces that combine crochet with wood and other natural materials. Our mushrooms got to know each other a bit.


And I got to meet Robyn Love and her beautifully covered rocket! Rebecca contributed to the squares throughout the day with some amazing crocheted squares that made me seriously consider giving the craft another try. (Maybe someday.)


I had so much fun seeing everything else at Maker Faire too—I can’t wait to go to another one!

Thank you to Rebecca for inviting me and also for the photos!

  1. Maker Faire was wonderful! My only disappointment was that I didn’t make it to your demo on Saturday, because my son got sick and my family had to go back to our hotel to facilitate his recovery! I have my fingers crossed that things will work out better next time. Sunday was amazing…

  2. Sounds like a great time! I wish I could have went. I had class on Saturday and Sunday, I went to Atlantic Antic. If you ever need help, let me know. I would be glad to help out.
