We’ll be hosting our second annual Yarn Swap / Destash Party on March 9th.

Whether you’re a new knitter in need of yarn, or a yarn hoarder looking to swap unused skeins, all are welcome. Knitters, crocheters, spinners, dyers, if you do it with yarn we’d love to have you. Bring your stash to trade and share while enjoying good company and tea. We’ll pile all the yarn on the table and then it’s all free to a good home.

1pm – 4pm
NYC Resistor
87 3rd Ave. in Brooklyn

PS: got partial skeins or leftovers that you want to rewind? We’ve got a swift & ball winder for you to use, too.

We’re really excited about this weekend’s 3d modeling class. Get your tickets now!
Three-dimensional computer models are used for concept design, prototyping on a 3D printer, making furniture on a CNC, creating realistically rendered images, making animations or games, and much more. In this class, you’ll learn how to navigate 3D software and create computer models from scratch using Rhino3D. The software is easy to learn and is a great starting point for working in three-dimensions no matter what you want to create. You’ll learn the fundamentals of working with various viewports, creating and editing basic and advanced geometry, as well as how to tailor your project for laser cutting and 3D printing.

We’re throwing a special NYE Craft Night at NYC Resistor!

A large drunk polar bear with a kabuki face painted on his stomach dances in the foreground while his friends, a llama, a panda, and a woman look on in amazement.

All usual Craft Night shenanigans welcome, whether that’s knitting/soldering/whatever projecting you want. We’ll be starting at 8pm and going til…whenever.

From left to right, a polar bear, a penguin, a panda bear, and a grizzly bear are dancing back and forth, flapping their hands near their face. The polar bear is wearing an apron and blue scarf. The grizzly bear is wearing a leather jacket, cross neckless and goggles

Bring your projects, bring your friends, most importantly – bring yourself.
