… it's coming …
… it's nearly time …
for this year's
Maker Faire Adelaide!
|Postcard for Maker Faire Adelaide on Sunday November 5, 2017|
Last year's Maker Faire was so much fun.
I got to meet lots of lovely people and answer lots of questions about crochet.
I plan to do the same this year except I expect to be answering questions about all sorts of other things as well because, instead of exhibiting this year, I will be volunteering instead.
I'm looking forward to donning the red 'CREW' T-shirt to welcome and guide visitors, provide assistance to exhibitors or maybe help behind-the-scenes. I'm not sure what my role will be yet.

As the card says, Maker Faire Adelaide 2017 will be:
Sunday, November 5, 2017
10:00 a.m.—4:00 p.m
Tonsley Main Assembly Building (MAB)
There will be ample parking around the back of the complex. The best way to come will be from the western side (Alawoona Avenue). If you arrive on the eastern side, do trust the volunteer guides when they tell you to follow the road around to the west!
Believe me, the pedestrian access from the western car park is just as easy (if not easier) than from the eastern side. If you cannot park close to the building and have difficulty walking the distance, there will be little golf buggies about the site ready to take you to the main entrance or back to your vehicle.
Last year, the train service was running. The Tonsley branch line does not normally run on weekends (shame, AdelaideMetro, shame!) but last year, special train services were provided for the Faire. Unfortunately there will not be a train service this year, as far as I know. I am extremely disappointed about that.
What to Expect
Since last year's Maker Faire, some of the space in the MAB has been built upon. Gradually this future Innovation District is filling up as tenants move in.
Therefore, this year's Maker Faire layout will be slightly different to last year's. I like that it won't be the same every year. It keeps it interesting and fresh along with the changes in the mix of exhibitors.
Come along and have a look at what is happening in the Tonsley precinct and meet all the friendly makers who love to share their passion with you.
It's basically the biggest "Show and Tell"
you have ever seen!
