How would you like to take part in the Singapore Mini Maker Faire 2013?

Hello Makers!

It has been half a year since our first Singapore Mini Maker Faire, and we hope you have had a great time since then, building, crafting and making things.We’re pleased to announce the dates for this year’s Faire – Saturday 27 July and Sunday 28 July. The venue will be finalised soon, but it will be outdoor (tented).

Before we call for makers officially, we hope you can help us get a sense of how you would like to participate. Appreciate it if you could do so by spending a few minutes to fill out a survey form here.  (Edit: The Call for Makers is now open!).

Do note that the form is just for us to have a preliminary feel of the event, so you will still need to fill out the “Call for Makers” form later on to confirm your participation.

If you have friends, family or colleagues who might be keen in participating in the Faire, please share this with them as well!

Hope to see you at the Singapore Mini Maker Faire 2013!
