Champlain Mini Maker Faire
Sat., Sept. 29, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. 2012

A first-ever Vermont event features workshops, speakers and demonstrations aiming to inspire both kids and adults to roll up their sleeves. Don’t want to get your hands dirty? Enjoy the food and live music while you gawk at everyone else’s gizmos, such as an e-textile weaver that creates fabric with conductive, light-up thread.
