Needlework brings together programmers, crafters

Embroidery 4A
Nice work Becky!

An online editor for the Craft and Make magazines, Becky Stern is deeply involved in the DIY community. Stern took her love for programming and crafts and meshed it into an embroidered piece that puts a microcontroller board called the LilyPad Arduino at its center.

The LilyPad is a microcontroller board that can be sewn to fabric with conductive thread. The board was designed and developed by Leah Buechley and SparkFun Electronics and it was an idea that fascinated Stern.

Stern took the board and embroidered it into a floral pattern. She added lights and sounds activated by sensors and the microcontroller software. Moving your hand over the piece results in changes in light and sounds generated from the fabric.
