Roundup

So, it’s all over and everyone’s had a week to recover. People have started getting photos up and blogposts written so it’s really nice to be able to see those!

You can download a list of all those wonderful people who came from Greater Manchester and Beyond (including Belguim!) to exhibit at the MMMF: Makers in mostly their own words  (this should have been available earlier sorry – can only blame mental block and wrestling with WP …)

The MMMF had a couple of write ups from BBC news online first this, then this which helped get the word out on the event.   For a quick review of the event, see this Storify story put together by @Defnetmedia.

Alex aka @CuddlemeViolet was All About The Beads up in the 1830 Warehouse and she recorded her view on the weekend here. This captures the essence of how different a Maker Faire  is from a ‘normal’ craft show. 

A couple of exhibitors made timelapse videos:

Another one from Saddleworth Vintage - continual streams of people! 

 It was enormous fun and the smiles on everyone’s faces, visitors and makers alike were really fantastic to see. If you have any comments, photos or videos to share please do! Use the email address, @MakerFaireMCR or the Facebook page
