Fun and Pink at the Maker Faire

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:

And we 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!

Carrie of We Do Not Have a Knittng Problem and I saying "Hi ZKnitter!"

Look! It's Nicole of Stash and Burn & Manda taste testing chocolate

Ceallach Dyes set up a great display of her solar dying process
(see her "ovens" behind the stall

Alysse rockin' the 3-Day bandanna

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!

What's up with the Harlot wearing a sweater in CA? I mean A/C OK, but she's the ONLY ONE wearing a sweater. Maybe global warming is real and Canada is the next Jamaica???

What a fun weekend!

What a fun event!

I think you all need to get together, watch Grease 2, and have pink satin jackets made. No, seriously.

And a good time was had by all! Looks like a lot of fun, wish I'd gone. Along with that, imagine how much awaremess you raised, and some of those folks will donate, even if the donations don't come thru your team. Wonderful! Enjoy your 7 mile. I bet by the time the real deal rolls around you'll be able to walk the day's distance, walk back to the start, then walk it again. Everybody pay triple, please!
