The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Fashioning Technology reviewed on Geekdad

Craft & Design

Today’s Geekdad has a nice review of our latest book, Fashioning Technology:

Fashioning Technology gives neophyte DIYers the tools and skills they need to expand their tinkering capabilities, but it’s also a lot of fun and very educational for people who’ve already got their feet wet. And for those of us who are competent with electronics but interested in expanding our crafting skills, the dual craft-tech projects are a great help.

“Fashioning Technology” Embraces the Fusion of Craft & Tech

This book demonstrates how to blend sewing and assembly techniques with traditional electronics to assemble simple circuits using conductive thread, solder joints for snaps, and switches for buttons. With the sewing machine as a viable substitute for the soldering iron, you can craft a new generation of objects that are interactive, quirky, and fashion-conscious.
