A&S at Chimera

I've created a MeetUp at Chimera: ... 242140355/ .

Their website is .

I'm a member of Chimera, a Makerspace in Sebastopol, across the street from Gryphon's Nest. I believe I'm allowed to host MeetUps there, but I'm still learning how the details work.

I plan to bring my serger and will train anyone who would like to learn how to use it. Chimera does have sewing machines, but I'm not signed off on them, so if someone would bring one or more, I think we can find a suitable location to set them up. There are 4 work tables in the central and a workbench in the shop. If we get a big crowd, we can probably use the outdoor (shaded) space.

This is an open MeetUp, so pretty much anyone can come. The rules of Chimera will continue to apply, I will emphasize a couple:

Machinery and many hand tools are only to be operated by members with appropriate training and signoff. Some hand tools can be used under supervision of a member, eg. me.

This is not an appropriate time or place for alcoholic beverages or any other substance that would impair safe behavior in a facility containing many sharp, heavy, powerful, or otherwise hazardous objects.

There will be members working on their own projects, so we need to respect their personal space, tidy up after ourselves, and otherwise act as guests who would like to be invited back.

Anyone under 18 will need to bring a responsible adult. Everyone will need to sign Chimera's Liability Waiver.

Chimera liked our MeetUp, so they've decided to have one of their own, and we're invited:

Costumes and Props for Halloween and upcoming Cons

I love Halloween! I know a lot of you do too so come out to the first of many (weekly) Halloween costume and prop make-athons. Bring your own supplies projects and skills, I'll bring my skills and we'll finally make those costumes we've been talking about--with plenty of time left before Halloween!

Time: 09 Sep 07:00PM to 09 Sep 10:00PM (3h)

This is leading up to a Halloween party, but I don't see why we can A&S along with them. I'm going to be there crafting and helping out.
