New Monthly Event: Soft Circuit Saturdays

We would like to announce a new monthly event aimed at people who love knitting, sewing, crafting, or working with fibers and paper. The term “soft circuits” has come to be used in the tech world to refer to a mash-up of electronics and crafts, sometimes with new age materials like conductive thread or micro-controllers that can go in the washing machine. We will be holding these events every 2nd Saturday of the month, to encourage anyone to come and share ideas, see what others are working on, and experiment with these materials. Our first event will be Saturday, February 11, from 1 – 4 pm. We will provide some of these materials for you to work with, we just ask for a $5 donation if you use any. If you want to bring your current craft project to work on, without adding electronics (or giving a donation), that’s fine too! It’s our hope that the monthly schedule will help us get to understand the community of people who are interested in this topic so that we can offer targeted classes and projects for them in the future.

      Hi Dirk, you are right that this year our next Soft Circuit Saturday is Jan 11, though the post you commented on was actually from a few years ago, and at that time the next one was on Feb. 11. Maybe we’ll see you this Saturday though?
