There’s so much I want to say about Vancouver’s first Maker Faire that I’ve put off writing this post for nearly three weeks. In the interest of getting over this block, I’ve decided to write a series of posts about it.

To sum up, Maker Faire blew my mind. It was the most fun I’ve had in a very long time, and I generally have a lot of fun. The vibe of creativity and community was nearly palpable. There was an utter lack of pretentiousness – no matter a maker’s passion, ideas were shared and lessons taught. It was like a creative, educational UTOPIA. I’m not even kidding.

More thoughts in upcoming posts. For now, photos!

*I’ve told you I joined the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild? I’m very excited about this, even though I can’t attend my first meeting as a member. Still. This is a group with some serious creative energy.

I’m so jealous! Toronto doesn’t nearly have anything like this right now (or maybe it’s just escaping me). Can’t wait to see more!
