Stitching to the Moon
Join us for a special techy edition of Stitchery Circle! This month we have a special technology focused project that combines our love of all things stitchy with tech.
In the 1960's, the computers needed to launch spaceships into the sky were programmed with a system called rope memory, with software being carefully woven through wire ropes to create physical distinctions between "1s" and "0s" for the binary computer code.
Women were hired as knowledgeble craftswomen to create the systems that would one day land a lunar module on the moon!
Learn about this history and then create some of your own. We'll be learning about sewable electronics and stitching our own way to the moon with this special workshop.
