I'm thrilled to announce that we've just added ten more confirmed exhibitors to our already-long roster! There are still more coming! Have a gander at these fine people/projects/companies:
- Spoonflower (our beloved sponsor!)
- ioBridge (our beloved sponsor!)
- Center for Design Innovation
- Making Green Art
- The Scrap Exchange
- The Clockwork Cabaret
- Solar Thermal Power
- The Beauty & Mystery of the Honey Bee
- Hooks and Eyes Handspun Yarns and Fiber Crafts
These eleven bring our total to 32! Go have a look at the rest!
The response to our call for Exhibitors, Makers, & Crafters has been overwhelming. I am amazed and excited about the people coming to share their lore next month. Because of this response we're going to have to close applications starting next week on Thursday 4/1/2010. This must be done to make sure that the Faire goes as smoothly as possible. Thanks for understanding and go ahead and submit your application while there's still time.
Exciting news! CloudFab is out of their beta period and you can now go and sign up. CloudFab is a company that puts designers/consumers in touch with manufacturers through a distributed manufacturing network. From their own site:
CloudFab basically works like this: Manufacturers list their machines and prices. Buyers can then upload STL files, and request quotes from all manufacturers that have a machine that can make their part. We've written software that analyzes the file and automatically generates a quote based on various factors, including shipping cost. That way, quotes are generated (almost) instantly. Some sellers still prefer manual quoting, and so we've provided that option as well. We also hold the money in escrow, to mitigate the risk for both parties in the transaction, and will do arbitration as necessary in the case of an unfortunate outcome.
This is, in many ways, how our exhibitor 100k Garages operates. CloudFab focuses on additive machining (3D Printing) while 100kG supports (encourages) subtractive technolgies such as those from ShopBot, Epilog, and others.
