Profile Information

FLORIDA hand made craft/artists & food vendors only. That is: hand crafted, created and produced. No resale. Are you an artist/crafter who does shows or a show producer? If so, leave a very long, very detailed description to be accepted. You can read this page for free, joining gets you emails--sometimes excessive--about shows as they are posted.
I'm a local writer and artist, and also producer of Gulf Coast MakerCon, an independent maker festival celebrating the DIY Inventive Spirit.

This is the 6th year for our maker festival - I produced Make branded "Mini Maker Faires" in 2011 and 2012, and decided that a "maker festival" shouldn't be subject to all the corporate limitations being imposed by a licensee of a program designed to highlight Do It Yourself-Reliance, so I decided to try my hand at hosting an independent event.

No sweat, and great fun! This year we've got a bigger venue than ever at the Florida Fairgrounds, great collaborative partners and an increasingly robust community of independent minded creative spirits bringing it all together.

We're looking exactly for No White Tent crafters and artists and I was delighted to find that someone had shared our event here. I actually just wanted to say thank you to the poster, but then realized it might be helpful to join the group as well.

We have active social media, a nice website with a makers library and public calendar where folks can share events and workshops and programs, and welcome guest bloggers and news year round.

Thank you!
