Sally Byers

Sally Byers sewed her first dress at age ten, and never stopped sewing. A few years ago an afternoon workshop with Lynne Bruning on e-textiles added a new and exciting dimension to clothes, and she has been lighting up clothing and hats, both handmade and salvaged, ever since.

Workshop: 

In this workshop, participants will be learn how to light up an LED using conductive thread instead of wire for the circuit. They will sew a simple circuit (shape of their choice) with a battery at one end and an LED somewhere in it, and use sticky tape to fasten the battery to the conductive leads. Troubleshooting supplied if the LED doesn't light up; everyone who wants to light up an LED should be able to do so before they leave. Please Note: Participants need to be able to thread a needle and sew a simple line, or have someone with them who can do so. Experience more of Sally Byers at www.threadwitch.com/.
