    I had a great time this afternoon watching you all use a soldering iron for the first time! Remember to keep practicing and share with us anything you make in the future.

    Hello Luz, I will need a kit too - do you need me to bring cash - or can you process my payment via card or paypal on site?

    You really have no idea how long I have been wanting to learn how - and I have never known anyone in my life that knows or could show me. thank you so much for offering the opportunity.

    I would love to go, but I don't have a kit. Could I just go and listen and watch if I don't have a kit?

    Hi Carrie, Glad you're intrigued! This is meant for people with no experience or are curious to learn. You don't have to have a kit to participate. I will bring in lots of wire and scrap boards to practice on. It's a chance to try this out. Hope you can make it.

    Are the kits from LA Makerspace expensive? I have no experience with this but I'm intrigued! Do you have to have a kit to participate?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
