January 2013 Archives

This project is from spring of 2012, but we're excited that it was recently featured in the window of Rainbow Chinese, a restaurant on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis. All of the houses were sewn in the eStudio using the digital embroidery machine, and all of the lighter blue lettering was hand sewn.

New signage

New signage is up outside of our door, hopefully to match the wonderful new xyz lab signs leading to the laser cutter and cnc router room in the East building. It's a little rough, but shows the seams that the ultrasonic welder can make...and hopefully answers any questions new visitors might have!

New Semester: Spring 2013

We're super excited to be back in the eStudio! Quote of the day yesterday was "the e could really stand for anything...I like to think it stands for exciting!" (Thanks Jenny!)

Newly installed this semester we have a roll of drafting paper..:
