Learn to sew with LED's and conductive thread in this introduction to soft circuits. We'll be covering the basics of a simple circuit using sewable electronic components, a battery, and switch to make a light up embroidery piece. A fabric 'firefly' template will be provided to use, but feel free to bring your own crafty supplies or clothing to augment. Knowing how to hand sew is helpful, but not required.
