Did you know that we have Maker Faire North Carolina logos available for you to put on your site? We designed multiple sizes and shapes of Maker Faire North Carolina logos for you to hot-link and embed in blog posts, project pages, forums, etc. Please help us spread the word!
We Want YOU!
We are looking for a few good people to assist us with making Maker Faire North Carolina the most awesomest event it can be. Could you spare three or more hours to help us run the event in exchange for free tickets, a shirt, party invitation, and our unending gratitude? If this sounds like you then head over to our Volunteer Application and fill it out.
One of the coolest possible volunteer positions is a little different than the rest. We need a couple of people to assist Maker Craig Trader in running and setting up the Chaos Machine! This volunteer position requires a little more time commitment but we'll hook you up with some extra tickets, etc. When you submit your application, just write in a note about the Chaos Machine in the Comments/Requests field.
Thanks! See you real soon!
Friends of ours in Burlington are having a Mini Maker Faire on Saturday, April 28th. The event will be held at the Holly Hill Mall and Business Center. There are some really interesting Makers on their roster and I can't wait to attend this event.
Check it out!
We've hit our initial targets and now have a nice large pool of exhibitor applications for our first round of acceptances. Right now we're getting everything organized and ready for review so that we can the best of the bunch within the next week to ten days. I'm thrilled to say that there is a bunch of AWESOME on the way to Maker Faire: NC this year!
What This Means
First, this is your last chance to apply during the first round of acceptances if you haven't yet done so! Applications must be pertinent to Maker Faire -- we probably won't be able to accommodate non-Maker exhibitors this year even for a good cause, and vendors also need offerings that directly pertain to Makers and the Maker Movement.
If you have already applied, then we'll be reviewing your application shortly. If you don't get accepted in Round One, you're application will automatically be considered in subsequent selections -- nothing more you need to do. If an application needs more information for us to consider it or the application simply isn't a Maker exhibition, then we'll contact that applicant to give them/her/him a chance to fix it up and try again.
After that we'll keep looking for awesome stuff to bring to Maker Faire: NC. We'll also start showing off some of the great Makers that will be exhibiting. Watch this space!
