Weaving with Conductive Thread and LEDs

weaving_electronics.jpg WeaveZine published an highly interesting article about Lynne Bruning‘s e-textile weaving technique.

The article explains the advantage the weaving process provides over sewing with electrically conductive yarn.

A detailed description, illustrated with sketches and many photos, explains the use of the clasped-weft technique, a weaving technique Lynne found out to provide perfect conditions for integrating conductive yarn and other electrical e-textile components during the weaving process.

The result of this unique technique is the complete and seamless integration of electrical components like LEDs, accelerometers, sonar units or LilyPad components into woven cloth.

Every single step is well documented in text and photos which makes it easy to follow step-by-step. An excellent source of inspiration and a highly recommended ‘Must-read’ article at WeaveZine.

I want to close this blog post with a line from Lynne I picked up in her article: ‘If you can dream it, you can find the hardware to build it!
