The Maker Faire is less than a week away! If you’re lucky enough to be attending this marvelous event, make sure to drop by the eTextile Lounge (see location below) for a lesson on how to stitch a soft circuit and even a show and tell on paper computing. You will also have the opportunity to meet brilliant etextile makers such as Lynne Bruning (the organizer of the event), Kristin Neidlinger and Grace Kim.
Have fun everybody! This faire going to be epic all thanks to Lynne!
The first ever eTextile Lounge at Maker Faire will display projects, promote lectures and provide the eTextile and wearable computing innovators a meeting place to share ideas, form partnerships and inform the Maker Faire community about the fusion of technology and fashion.
