Monday – Intro to Sashiko Inspired Visible Mending


This Monday join us for 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.

Field Day 2019 — Amateur Radio’s Open House

Saturday June 22, 2 PM – Sunday June 23, 2 PM

Are you interested in Amateur Radio? Do you want to learn how you can communicate locally and globally without the use of a telephone or the Internet using just a radio and antenna?

Our friends at the Twin State Radio Club would like to invite you to join them for Amateur Radio Field Day, Amateur Radio’s Open House. This is your chance to come out and learn, see a variety of Amateur Radio equipment in use, get on the air yourself and find out how you can become a licensed Amateur Radio operator and join in this exciting hobby.

Ham Radio as it is often called, is one of the original Do-It-Yourself hobbies and is one of the best ways for people to learn about electronics, physics, meteorology, and numerous other scientific disciplines, and is a huge asset to any community during disasters if the standard communications and power infrastructure goes down. Makers, electronics enthusiasts, and just folks who like to communicate are all part of the Amateur Radio community.

Twin State Radio Club will be operating for 24 hours using alternate forms of power including solar, battery, and generators, simulating a disaster situation, operating in a field, without any commercial power.

Come and learn about the many different ways to participate in Amateur Radio, including voice, digital, satellite communications, and Morse code. Learn about the variety of commercial Amateur Radio equipment available, as well as radio and antenna kits and electronics projects that you can build yourself, at home or at the Claremont MakerSpace.

Twin State Radio Club will be operating continually from Saturday June 24th at 2pm until Sunday June 25th at 2pm. Stop by any time, see the setup, talk with local radio enthusiasts and makers and get on the air and make your first radio contact! We’ll be set up at the Richmond Middle School playing fields 63 Lyme Rd, Hanover, NH 03755

ALL ARE WELCOME. You don’t need to be a licensed ham radio operator to attend. Stop by, check it out and see what this exciting hobby has to offer.

You can learn more about Field Day here: and more info about Twin State Radio Club can be found at
