Craft Party at TechShop

If you live in the Bay Area & you like to make stuff  with your hands then you should really know about TechShop. There are 3 Bay Area locations and several in other parts of the country.  
Now, I can hear you asking yourself... "What in the heck IS TechShop?" Dont' worry, I was asking the very same question too. After visiting their gorgeous San Francisco location I can tell you that it is mecca for folks who like to make things... all kinds of things, pretty much anything. But if that still doesn't clear it up for you, then perhaps the following info from their site will shed a brighter light on things:
"TechShop is designed for everyone, regardless of their skill level.
TechShop is perfect for inventors, makers, hackers, tinkerers, artists, roboteers, families, entrepreneurs, youth groups, FIRST robotic teams, arts and crafts enthusiasts, and anyone else who wants to be able to make things that they dream up but don't have the tools, space or skills.
TechShop provides you with access to a wide variety of machinery and tools including milling machines and lathes, welding stations and a CNC plasma cutter, sheet metal working equipment, drill presses and band saws, industrial sewing machines, hand tools, plastic and wood working equipment including a 4' x 8' ShopBot CNC router, electronics design and fabrication facilities, Epilog laser cutters, tubing and metal bending machines, a Dimension SST 3-D printer, electrical supplies and tools, and pretty much everything you'd ever need to make just about anything."
And speaking of making things... 

We are Ecstatic to announce that this years Craft Party will be taking place at TechShop San Francisco. This Craft Party isn't your typical Stitch n' Bitch, we are expecting 150 -250 crafters from all over the Bay Area. And it just wouldn't be a party without YOU!  

If you haven't been to a TechShop location, you really need to see it to believe all the awesome that it is. Craft Party is an incredible opportunity to come down and spend some 
quality time at one.

June 10th from 5- 9 PM

We are still looking for a few volunteers to help us with set up & take down on the day of the event. Please email Jen, our Communications Coordinator to volunteer for this exciting event!
