The Champlain Mini Maker Faire is looking for makers. On September 29th at Shelburne Farms, creators and crafters from around Vermont will gather for what has been called “the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth.”
So what is a Maker Faire? Well, it “brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, food and music, fire and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture.”
And to make it happen, the Champlain Mini Maker Faire seeks makers and their goods. “Fancy yourself a Maker? If you like to tinker, sculpt, experiment, make tools, make toys, make art, make music, make anything – please respond to this Call For Makers!“
It figures, you hear about something that sounds really cool, when the doors are closing. From their website:
To all our valued customers,
After five fantastic years we the aliens are being called back to the mother ship and must close up shop here at 208 Flynn Avenue.
We will miss you all terribly and thank you so much for being here for us.

It’s a shame. If I’d know about this place, I would have certainly stopped by at least once. Hopefully, someone will pick up the sword and continue onwards!
