On Sunday, you’ll find an great variety of commercial makers in Studio One Plaza and Theater—the Makers’ Marketplace— and also in the Magnolia Circle at Park Day. Here’s a little preview:
Grace Hawthorne, CEO/Publisher of ReadyMade, founded Paper Punk, an innovative paper-based building toy that provides endless imaginative and creative play for humans of all ages.
A Slice of Delight in Berkeley
Founded by Hilary Goldman in 2009, after she transitioned out of high tech — where she’d worked for 35 hours — to launch into the new and exciting world of soap crafting. This mother of twins buys her soap base and colorants direct from local suppliers.
Kimonomomo in San Francisco
Founded in 2005 by Carol Ziogas, who learned how to sew in 1978 on a vintage Singer machine back. She loves Japanese textiles “because they are beautiful. Growing up near San Francisco I was exposed to a tremendous amount of Asian art, and my mother was a textile junkie who quilted and collected Japanese fabrics herself. It rubbed off on me.”
