Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is less than two weeks away, and volunteers are getting creative about spreading the word.

Last weekend, after a couple weeks of feverish knitting and crocheting, a group yarn bombed (aka yarn stormed; aka yarn graffitied) a bike rack on Dunsmuir, including information about the event on their tags. Check out the VMMF blog for more. Another yarn bombing is planned for the 20th, just a few days before the event.

Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is a celebration of DIY. Come learn about what people all over town are making from scratch – from robots to quilts, bacon to art.
