Design Meetup – This Thursday

Makers,

Are you a graphic, web or digital designer and looking to network with other professionals? Join us this Thursday at CMS for CreativesMix, a meetup focused on all things design. Although we’re focused on digital and graphic design, we welcome any kind of designer (fashion, painting, etc…) that wants to come network.  This month, we will be joined by local print shop owner, Mike Stankevich of Doolittle’s PrintServe, will share helpful reminders, tips, and tricks to ensure your clients’ jobs are printed successfully and in a timely manner.

Other Upcoming Events

This Saturday, learn the ins and outs of renting at Tenancy 101. Come away with helpful information for any step in the renting process. Presented by United Valley Interfaith Project.

On Monday, join us for Advanced Topics in Solar. This continued discussion will cover:

– How to size a solar array?

– Should I start small and expand?

– How to estimate the costs and incentives?

– Financing options, technology options and Q&As.

Tuesday features a brand new class: Intro to Sashiko-Inspired Visible Mending! In this introductory class to visible mending students will create simple but unique exterior patch repairs and/or embellishments to their denim or medium-weight twill garments, inspired by the ancient Japanese tradition of Sashiko stitching. We will consider environmental effects of our throw-away clothing culture, as well as the concepts of “slow fashion,” “mindful mending,” individuality, and responsible sourcing. Each student will leave with 2 patches (provided), written materials for home reference, and inspiration to turn their current wardrobe into something special instead of something trashed.

Ages 13 & up (accompanied by an adult) are allowed. This class is open to all skill levels.

See below for more upcoming classes!
