Our first-ever Make Afternoon featured many awesome things and projects. Highlights included:
Preferred pronoun name tags!
Sewing machines and soldering irons.
An embroidered spaghetti plot.
And lots of LEDs and textiles.
We’re thinking of doing one of these every other month, so watch our Meetup group for the next one!
Join Spanning Tree for our first ever Make Afternoon on Saturday, January 17th. We will be meeting at 1:00 pm in room A-9 of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library for an afternoon of making, crafting, and getting to know each other.
This is the perfect place to finally finish those knitted mittens, put the finishing touches on your personal website, or learn how to solder. Bring a project to work on or just yourself. We’ll have tables, snacks, plenty of outlets, and — if our plans work out — wi-fi.
Additional equipment available for use: a sewing machine, extra knitting needles, a button-making device, a soldering iron and glitter glue. (If you’d like to bring artwork for buttons, try to fit it within a 0.875″ diameter circle — but leave plenty of margin around that, it will be set up to make one-inch-diameter pin-back buttons. )

Going to ShmooCon this year? Even if you’re not, join the Spanning Tree community and visiting feminist hackers for a ShmooCon dinner at Buca di Beppo on January 16th! (And be sure to RSVP as soon as possible, so we know how big a table to reserve.)
