Call for Makers is Almost Over

The Call for Makers for 2012 is almost over! MAKE time to apply – in the midst of your crocheting, soldering, blacksmithing, printmaking, programming, weaving, rewiring – before you miss your chance to exhibit in the 2012 Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire.

*NOTE: A few makers have asked us about this “Round I / Round II” business. Both calls are open to everyone – Round I was just an early bird round. So apply today! The Faire won’t be the same without you.
