Meet up at Nine Rubies before Maker Faire

The Maker Faire is happening this weekend (May 19th and 20th) at the San Mateo County Fairgrounds - it’s a fun event - a unique combination of do-it-yourself craft projects, robot-building and so much more. Your kids and family will love you for taking them there.

On Sunday, the 20th at 10:30 am, a group of knitters (yes, knitting is part of the Maker Faire) will be meeting up at the store to knit and chat and then some of them will head over to the event.

Come join Nicole and Jenny, the girls behind the podcast called Stash and Burn - they have invited their listeners here that day. We’re looking forward to meeting the entertaining duo.
Nine Rubies Knitting is located at 28 E. 3rd Avenue in downtown San Mateo. Call us at 650-685-6205 with any questions. There is street parking or a parking structure around the corner on 2nd and El Camino. Parking is free on Sundays.
