Could Your Future Clothing Be Made from… SLIME ???

Four minute story from PBS Nova, read to you via audio, or you can read the story and see the pics. It’s the work of Tim Winegard at our own Canadian University of Guelph.

Personally, I’d rather have clothing made from artificially produced spider webs, thank you. Another 4 minute story with Randy Lewis, Nicolas Godley and David Pogue. This is absolutely fascinating!

Class — What Goes in Your Purse?

This will be a class on what goes into your purse. There will be 3 possibilities, and you can pick which one you want to complete. All require the same techniques and can be personalized. The first option is a purse organizer pattern that the teacher, Nancy McKenzie, developed. She will email you that pattern if you like for a $5 donation to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers project. The other two options are organizer wallets that can be purchased on the internet. They are from PoldaPop.
