While I can never support cross stitch, stuff like this shows there is a place for embroidery.

I’ve played with “conductive thread” before. It’s literally thin winds of uninsulated steel wire. It’s kind of unwieldy and a pain in the ass to work with. It’s absolutely going to look really messy on the back side. But, you can do some really cool shit with it.


My kitty, Trelane, disagrees. He’s helping me work on a sampler for my sister’s birthday.


I did a NeoPixel-bedazzled fedora back in the day, and … OOOF. ESPECIALLY when unexperienced in sewing (raises hand), it’s NOT fun to work with.

On the flip side, though, it was a blast to wear to con parties.

(Likewise, a professional costumer buddy of mine did a hall costume for another friend of mine that got the attention of the WorldCon twitter that year…)
