More fun with electronic textiles

Several years ago I took a class at Shakerag with Leah Buechley and since then I’ve been showing e-textile technology to anyone who would watch and listen. Yesterday Veronica, a talented quilting friend from Chattanooga, spent the day with me getting started with electronic textiles. We used the lily tiny, a microcontroller small enough to sew into wearables, and stitched on three lights each blinking with a different pattern. It’s a major accomplishment for anyone new to circuitry and LEDs. But Veronica’s eyes lit up with the possibilities of all the blinky things she could add to her quilted pieces to make them even more fun.
