Basically we would just let each of them talk about what their project was, what went well, what lessons were learned, etc. for 10-15 minutes each. If reasonably advertised, this would give us some good exposure, bring some people into the shop, give something useful back to the community, etc.

Ideally it happens in the shop, and ideally that's the new shop by then... part of the benefit for us is exposure to the kind of person who is thinking about kickstarter, for whom we might be a good resource.

I'm willing to do most-to-all of the legwork, but I would very much welcome assistance and collaboration from anyone else who thinks this is a good idea. Let me know if you want to be involved and in broad strokes some idea of time available to work on the project.
