Light Stitches Conductive Thread Kits

<p>The extremely successful Light Stitches projects use a new smart material, Conductive Thread to attach LEDs (lights) to textile projects by simply fastening a knot or sewing onto the LED. This highly conductive thread acts and behaves like conventional thread with the added bonus of being extremely conductive.</p>
