My work was featured in a write up by Make Magazine!
The quote reads “Kate Schroeder brought her NEAT! Braille jewelry. These are single words, created in Braille. They look pretty cool too. She had nice words, silly words, and naughty words. I really thought it was cool. As I introduced myself, she even made me a little paper name tag with my name in braille!” How neat is that?! My friend Matt Bell was also featured with his Flying Circus Quadcopter race!
Getting these soon to be keychains ready for the American Council of the Blind conference in STL this weekend and early next week! The first 100 people to my booth will receive this commemorative ACB 2018 STL keychain!
I received this in an email last night, and I honestly can’t tell you how much it means to me! It’s been a real struggle perfecting this product so that it is totally legible to the Braille reading community. As a business owner and advocate it was incredibly important to make a product that was actually Braille, and not just a pattern of dots that looked like Braille. I am beyond delighted to know how legible it has become! Thank you all who have supported me in this journey! You truly are the reason I am still here, making this product! *personal details from the quote were removed for privacy*
Another successful Maker Faire in the books!!! Thanks Kansas City and maker community! You rock!
Maker Faire is so stinking fun this year! There is only one more hour of today, but never fear, we will be here from 10am-5pm tomorrow! Not only am I selling my Braille jewelry, but this year I am making Braille name tags! Even Makey stopped by to get one!
I posted about these prototypes ages ago, and I totally forgot to post them when I deliver led to my friend Mike! I think they turned out pretty good!
