LED T-Shirts or hats, or bags or anything you can sew on
Bring your favorite T-shirt (or any other fabric object that we can use to sew on) that could use a new life. We’ll teach you how to sew an electric circuit into your shirt that will light up an LED. So pick something that could use a spot of light. You bring your T-shirt, or other fabric thing, and we’ll provide all the tools and supplies you’ll need. No sewing experience necessary, however if you do not know how to sew, please come 15 minutes early and we’ll give you a quick lesson. This program is open to teens
in Middle School & High School.
