Spinning Night Recap

Greetings Hivemind! Konstantinos (they/them) back again to post about another wonderful Tuesday talk .

Our speakers this week were Kate (she/her) and Robin (she/her), Kate being a member of Hive13. We were absolutely thrilled to have them in to talk to us about the artistry, skill, and frustrations of spinning.

Kate's spinning wheel.

The night kicked off semi-promptly after the Tuesday night meeting for experiential learning. Robin and Kate set up by the arcade cabinet with two wheels, lots of fibers, and drop spindles galore! Kate explained to beginners and curious eyes alike that spinning is an ancient tradition for textile arts as Robin demonstrated on a stunning spinning wheel. For those of us who don't have the room, money, or technical know how to have a full spinning wheel, we were shown how to use a drop spindle with gloriously colored fiber.

A drop spindle with little sheep painted on it held against a white, concrete surface with green, purple, and pink fibers coming off of it.
A (very cute) drop spindle with boldly colored fibers for spinning.

When asked about how she felt the session went, Kate said she had a lot of fun.

For Hive members, we now have drop spindles and some fiber at the Hive! Spin till your heart is dizzy!

That's all, Hivemind. Go forth and spin!

Upcoming Class: Making a Wetmolded Leather Mask

When: Saturday February 18, 2016 12pm to 4pm. nRegistration:n preparation for Mardi Gras or any other event that deserves a mask, we will go over the basics of wetmolding to take a flat piece of leather and turn it into a 3 dimensional leather mask. This is an introduction to a technique of shaping leather to create a hardened shape that is used for not only masks, but cases, holsters, bags, and anything else that should maintain its shape.nnNo previous experience with leather is needed as we will go over all the cutting and forming.

nWe will be hosting a SMT Hand soldering class at the Hive on Wednesday March 2nd at 7pm.  Goal for the class is to cover simple, easy to do (with a steady hand) techniques and materials used for soldering common SMT packages WITH n LEADS.  NO BGA.  NO QFN.  (i.e. nothing with “blind” pads underneath the device that need soldered – can’t do that well without reflow IMHO) n n Targets: n SOIC n TQFP n resistors, capacitors down to 0402 (I’m not good enough to do 0201 by hand consistently) n connectors (mini USB, ethernet, etc.)nnThis covers 90% of the MCUs, transitors/FETs and passive components commonly used by enthusiasts.  We will most likely be building AMP kits that you will be able to take home after the class.  Seats are extremely limited for this class but if it sells out we plan on having this class again.nnDate: 3/2/2011  Time: 7pm-9pmnnRegister for SMT Hand soldering 101 in Cincinnati, OH  on Eventbritennn
