Calling all teen crafters, knitters, crocheters and seamsters!


Submissions from VMMF Yarn Party

A few weeks before Maker Faire 2012, we received a large shipment of wool from Granted clothing. We decided to pass out free wool to anyone that wanted to knit something awesome. Scroll down to check out some of the submissions!

Vancouver Mini Maker Faire is happening Today and Tomorrow!

Come on down to the PNE Forum for some fun times! The event will be happening from 10-6 on both Saturday and Sunday.


Vancouver Mini Maker Faire Floorplan and How to Get there

Scrunch your eyes, and check out all of the Makers that will be packed in to the PNE Forum this weekend. Zut alors!

For those confused about where at the PNE the event will be, it will be located at the corner of Hastings and Renfrew, in the PNE Forum building.



How do I get there? 

We encourage you to use alternate transportation. The PNE is easily accessible by public transport and there are bicycle racks located at the corner of Hastings & Renfrew. For more information about getting to the PNE via transit, including fares and schedules, please visit or call 604-953-3333.

Will there be parking?

If you choose to drive we encourage you to park in one of the PNE’s secure, well-lit lots. For easy access to the PNE’s Forum building, enter the PNE grounds via Gate 2 off Renfrew Street. The daily parking fee is $10 including tax per vehicle. We accept cash, credit and debit for parking payment.

What if it rains? 

The show will go on! Bring rain gear to keep you dry when walking outdoors. Fortunately, we will have many indoor exhibits to keep the family dry.
