Hello, I have a friend in Sam Francisco and trying to move out. He recently started a website selling his puppet mechanisms and designs. I'm not sure how to help spread the word and wanted to peak on Reddit.
His site is www.puppetprints.com and if you have any suggestions, recommendations or just want to talk to him about puppets, he would live to hear it.
He is a bit stressed out at the moment from losing his job not able to return home. He could use some voices from a community he enjoys. If he was on Reddit I would point him your way.
