On Wednesday, September 26, the Elgin Mall was packed with dozens of St. Thomas and Elgin makers and their booths, dedicated to showing the public what goes on behind the scenes. Hundreds of students, families, and community members toured the mall throughout the day to get a new perspective on some of the products created in our own backyard.
