Electronics aren’t just for geeks anymore! Learn how to add lights or sounds to your textile-based project, without picking up a soldering iron.

In this beginner’s level workshop, we will embellish a simple embroidery project with LEDs. Learn how to make a battery holder & push button out of textiles, and then sew everything together into a working electronic circuit. Basic embroidery skills are recommended, although not required.
