Zone updates

Craft Room

  • A box of 100 X-acto blades disappeared very quickly recently. It is suggested that you take what you need and leave the rest for others to find in the craft room, since we assume the box was lost in space, and not consumed. Because if you went through that many, please use a more appropriate tool.
    • They'll be replaced with a smaller package and refilled as needed, but still leave what you don't need, in the craft room.
  • Two boxes of glue guns now live in the common area on the shelf next to the computer zone. Two still live in the craft room. This should make it easier for everyone to find convenient access to what they need.


  • We've been refilling supplies of needles, stabilizer and thread. When you empty a package, leave it so we can tefill it from extra stock. Reimbursement costs for needles are now added to the packaging. They are a buck plus some change, depending on which.
  • Please note the serger uses different needles, and each sewing machine uses different bobbins. If you are not sure, please check with Jan. Slack and email both work!
  • We have new feet for the serger which expand the capabilities of the machine. They are small and expensive, so please see Jan if you would like to try them out!
  • The box of big thread spools left in the craft room is considered abandoned and will be marked with a parking ticket before moving to the graveyard.

Laser Zone

  • Automation update went live last week, seems to be working well. Let Mike know if it's not.

Leather Loft

  • Karianne will be away for a couple months. Lew can help with any tool authorizations in the meantime.
  • Karianne also just dropped off a bunch of new scrap if you're looking for some material.

Media Lab

  • Song and Music Binders donated by Martee

Space Project Updates
