Come say hello to the people who are teaching or will be teaching classes at SYN Shop. The dialog with our community to find out what everyone would like to learn, experience or teach continues.

If you like to hack, create, build, make, reverse-engineer, up-cycle, craft, mix multiple technologies, invent and are willing to support others who do, come by and Meet the Teachers. No pressure to participate and no expectations for anyone to show up. This event will happen around the 3rd Thursday of every month. Let's make things awesome!

The shop has recently acquired a Silhouette cutter, which allows you to cut out a variety of materials like vinyl, paper, fabric, etc. This class will be a quick 10-20 minute introduction to the software required to use the cutter. I will show you how to take any image and use the Silhouette software to make cutouts of the image.

While we could teach you all about how to use a sewing machine in general it would make more sense to teach you how to use your machine better. Our very own Rebecca will guide you through the basics in this hands on class. This class is limited to six people so we will be collecting payment upfront.

Skills to be learned:
How to thread your machine
How to insert the needle and bobbin
How to change out the feet
How to adjust thread tension
How to wind the bobbin

I just posted a new video to my YouTube channel, builtxbillt. It's a quick build of a simple steadyCAM design based on an article in MAKE. It's made from parts I had lying around my shop and it works well. Check it out at the link below:

Thanks for watching!

SYN Shop was mentioned on Fox News Channel 5's segment about 3d printing this morning!
Great work Judd and Andrew!

We have a cool event coming up on July 27th for javascript developers interested in learning about robotics:

NodeBots Day Las Vegas

You can build anything you'd like, but we'll also be providing Sumobot Jr kits designed here at SYN Shop to help you get up and running quickly. See the video for more info on the kit:
