Quilter, knitter, ex-tech worker, current ethnographer, bi-coastal. Message @michelle on Slack or Discord.
I help run the sewing guild and organize/participate in Fyber Collective Projects. Check out our Tenses quilt documentation to see how we're combining AI, electronics, woodwork, embroidery, and quilting. If you are at Noisebridge, take a look at some of our projects, which should be displayed in various locations. Some of these projects, while "completed", continue to be hackable; add some embroidery to our cybernetic collective quilt, or hack into the LED protocol for the Tenses quilt and add your own patterns.
If you are interested in starting a new Fyber Collective project or participating in ongoing projects, we coordinate in the #stable-diffusion-quilt channel in the Noisebridge AI Discord. You can also occasionally see updates in the Noisebridge Discord #Sewing channel, or message me on one of these platforms. Feel free to reference our documentation for tips and ideas.
