232  Gail Hollinger-- Intermediate Soft Circuits: Light up Your Textiles with Conductive Thread and LED Lights: Twinkling Lights
Experience:  Basic hand sewing
Workshop Description:  If you love bling, you are going to love Soft Circuits, lighting up your textiles and clothing with conductive thread and tiny, LED lights!  We will be embellishing a scarf with LEDs sewn to a preprogramed Arduino that will make the LED’s light up randomly (the pictured scarf has twelve LEDs).   The scarf can be fleece or knitted/crocheted, or you can add the lights to a piece of clothing or other item.  Once you learn the basics of Soft Circuits (which includes some simple-to-understand electronics theory), you can begin adding lights to hats, clothing, handbags, etc.
Participants should bring:  A piece of fleece fabric or a panel of knitting or crocheting approximately 12’ X 60”, or any other item you wish, and a pair of sharp scissors.
Homework:  None
Material Fee:  $30  Conductive thread, two Arduinos, coin cell holder/switch, coin cell battery, LED lights, needles, fabric, paper, and a bound booklet of instructions.
Class Limit:  12
