e-Textile 101 workshop

Philadelphia based NextFab Studio, a membership-based, high-tech workshop and prototyping center is running a two day workshop about the basics of e-Textiles end of this month.

If you are around the area on the weekend of September 29th and 30th and want to get introduced to the wonderful,  creative world of eTextiles, sign up soon, there are only very few places available.

You will need to bring your own article of clothing or other soft item (blanket, potholder, bag) you want to upgrade to the digital age and a laptop (Mac or PC).

You will learn about about e-textiles materials and methods including: soft circuits, power, voltage, resistance, hand-sewing vs. machine sewing, conductive fabric, conductive thread, sewing LEDs, switches, sensors, plus examples of what you can do with these tools.

Day two will focus mainly on an intro to programming with Lilypad Arduino and working on your own eTextile project.

The workshop fee which includes a LilyPad Arduino kit is $190.- or  reduced fee of $160.- for NextFab members.


  1. With the launch of the Galaxy S7 and the S7 edge, people have already started to look forward to the next flagship launch from Samsung, the Galaxy S8. But if rumors are to be believed, work has already started for the next installment of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S9. If you want to know more about the device, then you must check out my site Samsung Galaxy S9

  2. Expect the Google Pixel 2 in or around October with a high price – it’s unlikely to be any cheaper than the original Pixel.
