A special thanks to Becky Stern from @adafruit @bekathwia #wearables

Hey folks, it is with some sadness, but also with a TON of excitement that we’re are now wishing Becky excellent thoughts for her next big thing she takes on – Becky let us know that this was her last month after 4 years as Director of Wearables, some of us have worked with Becky from almost 10 years, it’s not goodbye, it’s a “we can’t wait to see what you do next”. We are so very proud of our work together.

You can read Becky’s farewell post on Adafruit as well as her site. And see her video above. All of the shows, content and more are on our site, check out Becky’s post for links and more.

From everyone at Adafruit, thank you Becky!

There will not be “Wearable Electronics with Becky Stern” this week or going forward 🙂 However, we’ll be adding more shows as usual with more people looking to make as big of a dent as Becky has in the wearables and DIY universe.

Want to join an adventure at Adafruit? Post your projects, make a tutorial, tweet them, make some videos, come on our show and tell, we’ll find each other and do some cool things together! It’s pretty much how we met Becky and many of the talented people @ Adafruit and how we’d like to get to know you too 🙂


We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
