On May 19 and 20, makers, craft enthusiasts, and lifetime do-it-yourselfers will gather in the Bay Area to showcase their work, embrace the do-it-together spirit, and help each other create. Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation through projects across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance, and (of course) craft. Craftsy will have a booth at the event to help attendees as they make their own unique craft projects.

Maker Faire is all about gathering inquisitive people who enjoy learning together to help each other build fascinating, mesmerizing, and interesting projects. This is an event that truly explores new creative forms and technologies. It’s no wonder that the curious people here at Craftsy wanted to attend! Maker Faire has a huge focus on community (something that we can definitely relate to). It is an event that gets people together to make something totally new, and totally special. We pride ourselves on our Craftsy community, which is why we so love the same community-oriented thinking that Maker Faire exudes.

As an exclusive Craftsy contest, we’re currently giving away 30 free tickets! Click here to enter now for a chance to win a free ticket to Maker Faire Bay Area.

And make sure to keep an eye out for those curious Craftsy members who will be making innovative projects and soaking up the creative vibes all weekend long.

    Being a Californian, I am assuming that “the Bay Area” means San Franciso and surrounding towns. Am I right?

    I live in the Napa Valley, and had never heard of this fair before. I certainly hope to be able to attend, and take my daughter and mom along. I havn’t been able to attend any kind of arts and crafts shows locally due to my husbands poor health and sudden death at the end of December, 2011, and would enjoy the chance to get out and enjoy being around other people who enjoy any kinds of arts and crafts.
