Notes and pics from #TurtleStitch meetup at @TeachersCollege thanks to @susanettenheim @back_face @JaymesDec @TurtleStitch! #MakerEd #STEAM

Thanks to Susan Ettenheim () for knowing that Michael Aschauer (@back_face, Lead Developer of TurtleStitch) was going to be in town from Vienna, Austria! Susan gathered a bunch of educators and technologists to meet today both in-person and virtually — on the Google Hangout were folks from Kenya and Brooklyn, and also Andrea Mayr-Stalder (@turtlestitch, TurtleStitch’s Project Lead) in Austria. We were able to chat about TurtleStitch and talk about their growing community of people worldwide interested in sharing patterns and projects. Thanks as well to Jaymes Dec (@JaymesDec) who offered to have us hang with him at the Thingspace at Teachers College, Columbia University and hosted us during his office hours.

Here are some links:
1. The TurtleStitch website: https://turtlestitch.org
2. TurtleStitch cards for beginners which can be download (they remind me of the wonderful TurtleArt cards!): http://www.turtlestitch.org/static/download/TurtleStitch-Cards-Beginners.pdf
3. Michael also shared StitchPad http://stitchpad.io/ which allows you to sketch a picture with your finger on your phone and exported the design as an .svg or a .dst/.exp file to be embroidered with a digital sewing machine
4. Here’s a detailed blogpost by @RichardMillwood about using TurtleStitch: http://blog.richardmillwood.net/2017/10/20/turtlestitching-programming-embroidery/
