Kollabora is a new community for people who like to make things. We’re matching projects with supplies (yes, we ship stuff, too!) and are building a community around that. We’re starting with sewing, knitting, and jewelry making.
Check out our video to get a sneak preview! And sign up for your invite.
Btw – We believe that we are what we make. And I would like to ask you to help me spread the word: Upload a photo of you holding or using a handmade project (either made by you, or made for you) to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #kollabora.
Each day from now until Monday, June 11th we’ll choose our 3 favorites who will score great crafty prizes from some of our awesome friends like Wool and the Gang, Urbahnika, Mood Fabrics, and more!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
