Crafting Contest Country Eligibility

I saw there was a new contest, so went to investigate. I'm from the uk so always look at the eligibility at the bottom of the right hand side. This one said US only, but when I looked at the full rules, it listed all the usual places. See snapshot. Am I reading this wrong, or does one override the other? Can I enter? Thanks, Jon.

San Francisco Public Making Meet Up #3

I'm holding another "Make Out" making in public event this Thursday, June 2nd at the Amsterdam Cafe in San Francisco.

In the past we've had everything from crafts to robots to baking.  Last time we looked forward to Maker Faire, so I expect we'll talk a lot about our Maker Faire expereinces. When: June 2 from 5pm to 8pm (though it may run longer.) Where: Amsterdam Cafe, 937 Geary street, San Francisco [map] [web site] I'll be the guy playing with LEDs and Arduinos. Cost: Free! (Though Kelly, the lovely owner of Amsterdam cafe would appreciate it if you bought something to drink and tipped well.) Who: Everyone is welcome. More details are here.

Vinatge 2 1/4 inch Button Maker with Accessories

Anybody looking to start making buttons?  i just listed a vintage Badge-A-Minit press with all accessories you need to get started. Press, cutter, and parts are for making 2 1/4 inch buttons.  It's a really cool press but in the years I've had it I just never find myself needing to make buttons this large. More details in the listing if you're interested. It's a great "starter kit" bundle since it comes with 95 or so button parts too. The image uploader here doesn't seem to want to work, but there are good photos on the listing page. PM me with any questions or contact via eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Badge-a-Minit-2-1-4-inch-Button-Maker-with-Circle-Cutter-and-Button-Parts-/291563743124?ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123

Craftcation 2013 Recap

As you might have seen, I recently went to Craftcation 2013 with scoochmaroo and angelabchua! It was super fun and I learned tons of things, including soap making, macrame, paper embroidery and how to make bitters and limoncello. Below I've included some photos from the trip. Ventura is a really pretty town and the people at Craftcation were wonderful. :D Important things to note in the photos: Angie got in trouble at the Ventura pier. I made soap on the first day. Soap making was really interesting and we got to wear all types of safety equipment and use lye! It was really simple to do and my soap turned out perfect. I can't wait to share the recipe with you guys! Opening night, Sarah had a booth for making painted wooden bangles, there was live music and drinks, and the line for food was really long. Because I only think with my stomach I mentioned to Angie that we should sit near the food - score one for my stomach intuition! Sarah also had fun with the tent prop outside. Look at the cute little campfire! Did I mention Ventura was pretty? Cause it is. On the second day I made bitters and limoncello - they're no where near ready yet but they already smell just as good as some of the fancy store bought bitters I have at home. This is another thing I'd love to share here - it was fun and the results are great. Plus, a good excuse to do a little drinking (or tasting, whatever.) in the afternoon. :D I also made a macrame plant hanger on day 2 - I've always loved these. Turns out they're much easier to make than I thought. I found a rock on the beach that had a face so I took him home with me. We made lego jewelry! Sarah ran a table along with Angie on the third night and it was a huge hit. All the things I made during Craftcation: a macrame plant hanger, a painted wooden bangle, a lego heart necklace, a new pair of lego earrings, two types of bitters (grapefruit + dandelion root and lemon + lavender + cinnamon + hibiscus) and lemon/lime limoncello, two pounds of soap, and three embroidered paper pieces! All in all, it was really good conference! I made a business plan for myself, learned some new crafts, met tons of new people and networked networked networked. I definitely recommend it for makers, crafters, foodies and small business owners. There are tons of things I learned that I wouldn't have otherwise. Check out the #craftcation hashtag on twitter and instagram to see more pictures of the conference, or check out the website. :D

The Dark Side of Crafting?

I was recently sent this update from UC Berkeley and Indiana University, and thought I would pass it along.  I have never had a brush with the "Dark Side" of crafting they describe here.  Have you? Do you sew clothes, print posters, or shop for craft supplies only to realize your craft has negative effects, e.g., on the consumer or society at-large, morally, socially, and/or legally? Do you see a “dark side” to craft? If so, UC Berkeley and Indiana University researchers conducting a research project on handcraft and computing would love to talk to you. We will conduct interviews by instant message, email, phone, or in person within the next few months. To help us with our research, please email Daniela at daniela@ischool.berkeley.edu, Jeff at jbardzel@indiana.edu, or Shaowen at selu@indiana.edu.   image blatantly stolen from pirateluv which just has so many other cool things on it too.
