What in tarnation is Felt Club: XL Holiday?
On Sunday, November 18, from 11am-6pm we're hosting 75+ artists, crafters, and designers from SoCal and beyond who'll show off their latest and greatest D.I.Y. wares for your handmade-shopping pleasure! Visitors will also enjoy fresh and delicious eats and drinks from renowned Eagle Rock eatery Auntie Em's Kitchen. You'll also enjoy happy shopping music from our DJs, Dirty Robot and Lance Rock. With your admission, you'll receive a ticket to win a fantastic door prize, and the first 250 visitors will be treated to swag bags full of cool magazines, craft patterns, coupons, buttons, li'l gifts and samples from our sponsors and vendors (sneak peeks are viewable in our Flickr pool!). Last but not least, we're offering a full roster of hands-on craft classes throughout the day.
But what the heck is "Maker Square"?!
Maker Square is our fair-within-a-fair—a mini version of the popular Maker Faire event—hosted by the staff of Make and Craft magazines. Maker Square brings together science, art, craft and engineering in a fun, energized and exciting public forum. The aim is to inspire people of all ages to roll up their sleeves and become makers. Expect to see demonstrations (often hands-on) in robotics, unusual musical instruments, soft circuits, microcontrollers, and more. The Maker Square portion of Felt Club will feature people like Mister Jalopy, who will demonstrate his Mobile Drive-In Movie Projector (featured on the cover of MAKE Vol.11), Jason Torchinsky's "Super Stick", a 5-foot tall Atari 2600 joystick (which actually works!!), Jed Berk and his Blubberbots, and many more. In short, Maker Square is DIY meets techno-nerdiness at it's best!
