On November 7th and November 14th, Jael Harrington will be returning to LVL1 to teach a sewing workshop double header! Jael taught a sewing workshop back in June, and has returned to teach even more people the joys of fabric hacking! Since the age of 7, Jael has been ripping stitches and forging her own fashions, so she knows her way around a sewing machine!
Are you interested in sewing? Sewable electronics? Making your own clothes? Then these workshops are the workshops to attend! No experience needed! All are welcome to attend!
You need to bring 2-3 yards of fabric and a spool of thread, and we’ll take care of the rest! If you’ve got a project in mind, it would help if you brought your own pattern, and if you’ve got a sewing machine, bring it as well. If you need any help sourcing fabric, thread, or patterns, let us know beforehand, and we’ll help you out!
The workshops are pay-what-you-want, and if you bite off more than one workshop worth of project, come back for the second one!
Seating is extremely limited, so sign up early and sign up often for these great pay-what-you-want workshops!
Are your projects multiplying like rabbits? Do you have a pile of half-finished project just laying around, waiting for the eventual heat death of the universe? Does your backlog make you just want to hide in a cozy little hole in the side of a hill? Does the prospect of finishing anything seem like a distant and epic adventure? Join us at LVL1 on Friday, October 25th for Finish It Friday! From 6pm on Friday until 8am on Sunday, folks from all over will be gathering at LVL1 for a truly epic quest: Finishing something. We’ll be watching movies with hobbits, and setting stuff on fire for over 14 hours, so stop by, have a slice of pizza, and get something done!
Seriously, that’s all there is to it: Stop by sometime on Friday Evening/Saturday Morning, eat some pizza, watch some hobbits, try to finish a project, or try to help someone else finish a project. See you all there!
John Pagya of Verdant Design is back on November 5th, teaching another Sketchup Workshop! Last time, he went over the basics, and why you would want to use a tool like Sketchup. This time, he’ll be reviewing the basics, and going into more detail about how you can actually design parts for the 3D printer! If you’re interested in 3D design, art, or printing, you should stop by on November the 5th! Sketchup is a completely free tool, and John is a downright Sketchup professional! This tool allows you to create 3D models, which you can then take and print on one of the two LVL1 3D printers.
Like many of us, John Pagyga was immediately taken by the idea of 3D printing. As a landscape architect, he has already adapted sketchup into his daily routine, so he was able to translate those skills into near-immediate 3D printing prowess. He’d like to share these skills with others in the LVL1 community. On November 5th, from 6 to 8pm (immediately preceding one of our regular Tuesday meetings), he’ll be teaching a workshop about the ins and outs of Sketchup in a 3D printing context. Come on down, and learn you a 3D design tool!

Lvl1 enjoyed the first annual Maker Faire, and it was exciting to see the public interact with our makers and projects on such a grand scale! Good job everyone!
