Maker Faire 2015

The CraftGeeks were at the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire this past weekend for our second year running.

 

It was an awesome weekend full of amazing projects and a chance to connect with other makers and DIYers in our Vancouver community.

Our Booth at Maker Faire

We were pleased to discover that quite a few people remembered our booth from last year and had been pursuing cross stitch on their own and were back for more patterns and kits, a collection that has more than doubled since last year. Specially for Maker Faire we introduced our brand new T.A.R.D.I.S. kit for all the Doctor Who fans out there.

Speaking of kits, for the first time ever our sushi candle kits made their debut. We’ve had sushi candles available on our etsy store for quite some time now but we decided that in the DIY spirit of Maker Faire it would be great to have kits available for people to take home and create their own candles with.

We had a blast at Maker Faire and can’t wait for the next one!

Craft Geeks at Maker Faire

The Craft Geeks first ever Maker Faire was a great success.

It was a busy but fun weekend. We got the chance to debut a bunch of new products which have now been added to our Etsy store.

The cross stitch kits were a big hit. We had the binary heart kits for beginners as well as the animal scientists and Christmas patterns available for those who wanted a bigger challenge. We’ll be adding patterns each week to our Etsy store.

I think everyone was inspired by the creative atmosphere and wanted to try their hand at D.I.Y. We had sushi candles for sale but maybe next year we will sell the kits to make the candles.

It was great to have face to face interaction with customers and hear their feedback and ideas on our products as well as suggestions for future projects. Read More
