Today the Maker Fair came to the Bay Area and, seemingly at the last minute, the Yarn Harlot was scheduled to appear so Team Unraveled got together for an outing. We wore our pink shirts to promote our walk in the 3-Day
We became known as the "pink ladies" as in (overheard in a cell phone conversation), "Honey? Yeah, I'm standing in line behind the Pink Ladies." There were people dressed like this:
were the novelty!? Or maybe it was our stunning good looks. No matter, if it means we managed to raise some funds or interest in the walk. We scored second row seats:
Stephanie, as you probably know, was hilarious in her presentation ...
...and gracious and accommodating during the book signing.
Kristin aka Leftcoastknits, ME, Stephanie, Alysse aka Knitted Daughter, Jo aka Josie and Manda aka Knitting Psycho (missing but not forgotten is Betts aka Sunbny)
We ran into the most amazing people at the Faire!

This was my first time to the Maker Faire and we had a great time. It's a fabulous place for kids and geeks alike.
The bizarre bazaar was packed with hand made crafts and I may
have bought a skein of yarn from and Indie dyer.
This is the logo & business card that Kristin, designer extraordinaire made for our 3-Day team:
Better get to bed...we have a 7 mile walk tomorrow!
