Michelle Mears with Rolling Hills Library is participating in her third Big Muddy Mini Maker Faire. This year, she wanted to do something special and give back to the community.
The Sew Baby Sew! booth at the March 7 Big Muddy Mini Maker Faire will make quilts for baby and toddler beds for donation to the St. Joseph Noyes Home.
“For there to be some bit of social good at the end of making is an important piece,” Michelle says. “You’re not just making something for yourself; making for others is a bit of a higher calling.”
Those who visit the Sew Baby Sew! booth will not just be sewing. They are responsible for applying Mathematics to solve how many squares will be needed for the 12 inch by 12 inch quilt.
“We really want people to jump in and actually make,” Michelle says. “They have to figure out mathematically how many squares they need.”
On Saturday, March 7, The Big Muddy Mini Maker Faire will celebrate curious minds and new discoveries. Visit Restoration Natatorium, 117 Francis St., from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. to experience the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth. Purchase tickets at bigmuddymmf.eventbrite.com.
