I was at the Singapore Maker Faire last weekend. It’s not my first time attending the Maker Faire but it is my first time as a vendor. Usually i’ll be with the Yarn Bombing Singapore group. This year, due to an oversight, i kinda double booked myself and ended up with my own booth displaying & selling my crochet makes. Here’s my day 1 set up:
It’s a lovely experience to see the visitors’ reactions to my makes. Lulu & Tia the unicorns (right at the top of the middle shelf) recieved a lot of “Ooooh! These are so cute!” comments. Here’s a closer look at both of them.
They were both adopted on the second day of Maker Faire (but to different homes).
What did i like about being a craft vendor at the Maker Faire?
- I get to showcase my work to the public
- I get to meet many talented makers (like my next booth neighbour, a lady who makes puppets…like those muppet kind, & the booth behind me, a guy who makes star wars troopers helmet from scratch) & talk to them
- I get to teach finger knitting!
But i do miss my fellow yarnbombers. They had a lovely teepee (which i helped to design & make) and a campfire going. Isn’t this just amazing?
Next year… i’m not sure which part of the Maker Faire i’ll be in.
