I was sad to report that the PAB meetings are in Los Angeles, but with the level of interest I was observing I see no reason we can’t have our own… branch? sub-branch? meetings!
Vancouver’s first Maker Faire is happening June 25-26th, 2011 and I’ll be there representing the Pacific Americas Branch of the International Knot Tyers Guild. I’ll have a variety of make-and-take projects and will give the occasional rope making demo (participatory!) using (repurposing) plastic grocery bags (in the spirit of the event).
