  • Microcontroller Monthly Meetup (M3)
    This event was canceled.
  • Sew What? (Textile Arts & Crafts)
    Sewers, costumers, quilters, cosplayers, clothing designers, and textile artists & crafters of all kinds, come see what Tampa Hackerspace has to offer and meet others who share your interest in making things out of fabric and fiber! This meetup is free of charge and open to all. (Yes, this includes you, knitters, crocheters, cross-stitchers, embroiderers, weavers, tie-dyers, and anyone else who works with fabric, thread, yarn, etc.) Think of this as an "Open Make" event -- bring your project, or just come to learn & see what others are working on. We're working on putting together classes and/or group projects for future meetups. Tampa Hackerspace is in the midst of expanding, and we now have a (temporary) dedicated sewing & textiles area! If there is enough interest among our members, we may end up with a more permanent space as our expansion progresses. If this is something you'd like to see, come on out and help make it happen! We have a few working sewing machines set up, including a serger, and a large cutting table. If you have a project to work on, you may want to bring a machine if you're able as we may have more stitchers than sewing machines.
