This weekend show is devoted to making things - their website uses the following slogan:

Build, CRAFT, hack, play, MAKE.

LEARN TO MAKE, CRAFT, DESIGN OR DEVELOP:

• Robots • Rockets • Bicycles • Alternative Energy Devices • Electronics • Crafts

• Knitting • Eco Modding Cars • Kites • Special Effects • Sewing • and more...

DIY Makers, progressive techies, old-fashioned and indie crafters, mad scientists, quirky musicians and many more gather to celebrate the maker movement.

Now if you cannot go, for whatever reason - they have a great companion devoted to making things at : http://blog.makezine.com/

Some of my favorites are - Zombie Sits Up and Takes Notice - http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/10/z..._and_takes.html and the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/10/m...tin_sashim.html
