This beginner level e-textiles project has you sewing with conductive thread and loading a simple Arduino program onto the GEMMA microcontroller. This project is perfect for use with the GEMMA Sequin Starter Pack! Just add hook & loop. Before you get started, read through the Introducing GEMMA guide and install the Adafruit Arduino software.
Gather up the following parts & tools:
