The other day I was perusing the posts on KitsapMakers Facebook timeline and when I stumbled across one in particular I became a bit  embarrassed. The questions posed was this: “Where can we see a list of makers for this year’s faire?”. My job is to be the “Maker Guy” I deal with the makers, I list them, organize them, and advertise them since one purpose of the faire is to show the community the Makers in their midst. I haven’t done so well in fulfilling that job description because, there is no list for everyone to explore! My eternal thanks goes to anyone who asks a question that exposes a flaw in what I’m doing and makes me fix it, and Darla Buhler has indeed done just this. Now, thanks to her, is a little preview of the makers that we have so far!
