In the summer of 2013, a group of idealistic intersectional feminists started a hackerspace in downtown Seattle. We are a feminist, woman-centered, trans- and queer- inclusive space for tinkerers, makers, crafters and hackers of all genders. Our goal is to offer a safe, non-intimidating environment, tools, and a supportive, friendly community to help feminist makers and hackers learn and build.

Not long after we launched, other organizers started work on feminist hackerspaces in San Francisco and Portland! We hope that this is the beginning of similar spaces starting up in cities and towns across the world.

You can help make this happen: Come join us!

We are located at 600 First Ave, Unit 605. After hours, you can enter the building on the James Street side; look for the "Office Space" sign, and dial "Attic" on the intercom.

We hold a weekly open house on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9PM. You can reach us for more information at info@seattleattic.com. You can also sign up for our low-volume announcementslist to get updates about our events.

If you want to start a similar space in your city, do contact us so that we can share our knowledge and experience with you.

Did you miss our IndieGogo Campaign? You can still contribute to the Seattle Attic's continuing success on our donate page.

Your gift will help fund our operations cost as well as some of our stretch goals:

  • Memberships for starving hackers
  • A textile fabrication workshop: drum carder, serger, sewing/embroidery machine, blocking frame and blocking wires, notions and teaching materials!
  • A 3-D printer

You may also donate in kind. Check out this list of books/items/stuff that we would like to stock our space with.
