Cincinnati Maker Faire: This unique event is taking applications for makers to participate in the festivities being held September 13 and 14 at Cincinnati Museum Center. As a guild, we'll apply, and if we're accepted, we'll be looking for members to display their quilts and work the booth to demonstrate and educate. (We wouldn't be selling anything at this show—it's all about sharing and teaching.) Click here for more information about Cincinnati MakerFaire.
