Hello! My name is Moth, pronouns are they/them, and I’m pretty new to the maker space scene but have no shortage of experience!
I currently crochet, knit, spin fiber, tablet weave, weave proper (still new), nålbind, sew, and do leatherworking (also new but I don’t think Id consider myself overly “new” at it). I also can draw decently and putz around with design software. Before settling on going back to college for nursing, I was looking into biomedical engineering, and was on a robotics team as team lead and have a decent amount of time designing and creating mechanical parts, and have enough knowledge in other parts to be “dangerous” but not quite useful as far as other design features you may find on a robot goes.
Someone had mentioned this place to me before and I sort of looked into it. I have had an itch to use a tufting gun/frame in order to make a rug. What possessed me to want to make a rug is a bit beyond me, but knowing how I operate it won’t go away until I’ve had my hand at it.
I’ve both seen that y’all have access to a tufting gun and have a WIP SOP that I am very interested in and wouldn’t mind helping to fill out the rest of the way. I also have fiber arts and leatherworking experience I’m willing to help with/share with others. I’m going back to college this spring semester as well. I’m curious what all the process of joining looks like and what I need to get started!
