[edit] PFAFF

Pfaff 2022. This machine is in working order. I purchased it from the original owner recently. This machine has IDT. If you have any questions on using the machine you can text or call me @ 415-850-3704. My name is Maria and I live in the Mission, close to Noisebridge. I would be happy to show you how it works! My email is lbarbas@mail.ccsf.edu.

We are working hard to make the space a functional and beautiful space to work in.

[edit] 2015 Upgrade

As a spin off of the Noisebridge Booth for Maker Fair 2015 project the sewing area is going to be upgraded. Recently people have started maintaining and using the sewing area regularly again. The casework being built for Maker Faire 2015 will actually be designed for the sewing area so that after the show it may form the basis of the sewing area upgrade project.

I have started collecting inspiration images that will be used to design the cabinets and new sewing area. This project is currently in the conceptual design phase, so if you have ideas please add them here. Not pictured are ideas for storage of donated materials and fabrics. I think there should also be some clothes rods for hanging up projects and materials. Maybe a trip to a fabric store(s) could help.

I am interested in knitting and have taught knitting. I will have knitting supplies for everyone. I have been knitting for 25 years and have worked as a sample maker and consultant. I have written patterns and someday would love to write a book on knitting. I LOVE knitting and the practice of this has helped me in so many ways...come by to learn the practice of knitting as an art form or to relax!
