Allentown ArtsFest!

Our friends at The Alternative Gallery in Allentown invited us to participate at ArtsFest this year, and we're so glad they did! It was an amazing weekend of art, music, and food. We were set up in the Voyager Tent, a location specifically for celebrating the intersection of Art and Technology. And with two different hands-on activities, we were busy all day long.

Big thanks to all our members who came out to help!

"Learn to Solder" is always a hit. It's so great to see someone's face light up when they complete their first working circuit.

And Katie's "Laser-cut Cross Stitch" was a wonderful addition. This project puts a modern spin on a very old craft, using laser-cut wood instead of fabric.

We met a ton of amazing people and had a great time all weekend. Can't wait to do it all again next year!
