Calling All Makers, Mini And Maxi

We once called people "tinkers" if they spent time putting things together from parts, or fixed up worn-out gadgets with improvised fixes. 

But the expression of the moment is "maker," and Ashland will be the site of the Rogue Valley Mini Maker Faire in late September.  The call for makers, crafters, speakers, and sure, tinkers is on. 

Maker Faire organizers want to get the list locked up by August 17th.  Ana Byers from the event visits with details.  Allison French from Talent Maker City adds description of what makers and maker spaces are all about.
