Maker Faire Bay Area

Updated: Jul 31, 2019

I’m so excited to say that I got in to the Bazaar Bizarre Craft Marketplace at the Maker Faire in San Mateo on May 18th and 19th. The Maker Faire, people! Details below.


In the past, I’ve felt really intimidated to apply to the Maker Faire. It seems so big and I’m already on Make’s website a few times a week because it’s one of the best things on the internet so it seems really big-time, you know? But a few months ago, my wife and I took a field trip to the Outer Sunset in San Francisco and paid a visit to 3 Fish Studios and met co-owner/artist Eric. After introducing myself, we realized we had done quite a few craft fairs together and that he actually owns one of my Sutro Tower dish towels. We were talking shop and he asked if I was going to apply for the Maker Faire. Without even thinking about it a moment, I answered, “yes,” suddenly brimming with confidence, simply because he thought I could make it. On the one hand, I wish that the confidence came from within but damn it, I’ll take it any way I can get it. It was probably such and off-hand question from him and yet it was all I needed. Reminds me to always choose my words wisely because you never know when some random thing you say can affect someone else. It reminds me to be encouraging.
