and I'm starting to feel excited about attending. I had a blast year and I'm hoping this year's is even better. Want to attend the Detroit Makers Faire? Details here.

Last year at the Faire I participated in the Purl Street Scarf Project. I don't know if there'll be another yarn bomb extravaganza, but I rather hope so.

I have been thinking about it but I'm not sure. Honestly I was pretty disappointed in it last year. It was OK but I think I had high expectations having read accounts and seen photo albums from the big faires in California. I was also disappointed that there were usually about 5 people watching Tom Smith at any given time.

I will probably go anyway since as members we can get in really cheap, and I'm seriously considering buying a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic, and I'd like to go take a first-hand look before laying out $1300 for one. I think I can make it pay for itself with almost no work by using it to print RepRap parts and selling them on eBay.
