The booklist created for the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry's Mini Maker Faire held in September 2012.
What's a Maker Faire? "It's kind of like a science fair, but there are no judges. It's kind of like Burning Man, but family-friendly and way less dusty. It's kind of like a craft show, but the crafters are more important than the crafted. It's kind of like a Renaissance Faire, but instead of playing in the past, you're glimpsing the future."
Portland is a crafty city. These are just a few of the fabulous craft books we have in the catalog. Use the term handicraft for general crafts, and use a specific term like knitting for individual crafts. Check out the craft blog posts too for more book reviews and craft reviews.
