Sewing and Textile Open Lab: Soft Circuits

This week I will be working with soft circuits and sewing old film stock. This is a great time to work.

Every open lab has a general focus but is not limited an could include any of the following.

Open to the public, come work on sewing, drafting patterns, repair and the textile based projects.

Crafty Rachel (, will be on hand to help you get started, provide basic tools and machines for sewing (including a serger), give advice on your current project, or give ideas. Also a good place for beginners to get an overview and practice or for more experienced folks to get help.

Some things that will be going on include:

* Experimenting with laser cutting fabric
* Creating open source patterns
* Basic repair and clothing reconstruction
* Installing zipper and other hardware into projects

This open lab is has a causual format that is lead by the interest of the group that shows up.

      Ohhh, I am happy to do weekend events it there are enough peeps to fill a classroom... I wish there was a tool that did a good job having RSVP's to "tilt" things over into happening.
