Last year was an overwhelming success so we just had to have this event again.
There are so many great Maker groups and communities in the Seattle-area and this event is to bring everyone together under one roof to share skills, collaborate on projects, and find resources. With Seattle Mini Maker Faire not being held this year it's even more important that the Seattle Maker community has a way to stay connected.

What We'll Do:
• Have fun!
• Share projects and stories.
What to Bring:
Your projects in any stage of completion from basic concept/idea to working product. We want attendees to share both their successes and failures with fellow makers. You should have up to 3x3ft of table space and are welcome to bring a small 8.5x11 sign and/or business cards. We'll have a few note cards and sharpies for on-site labels. There will be limited access to power and attendees will need to bring their own extension cords. All projects will need to be cleaned up by 10pm.
Maker Exchange Box:
It was a big hit last year so we will bring it back. If you have something to share... filament, breadboards, motors, resistors, LEDs... give those projects you abandoned a new life! For example: I plan on bring a few partial rolls of 3D printer filament, some leftover acrylic paint from a completed project and a few Adafruit development boards I never got around to using.
Raffle Prizes for Project Sharing:
We will be giving a raffle ticket to ever Maker that brings a project to show/share. We have a total of nine(9) prizes we will be giving away:
Prize 1 & 2 - Circuit Playground Express development board donated by Adafruit
Prize 3,4 & 5 - Feather M4 Express development board donated by Adafruit
