  • To the teacher who reported that the students had trouble threading the needles, I purchase several inexpensive needle threaders and the students had no trouble once they learned how to use them.

  • I used this and the Lilypad ProtoSnap recently with sixth-grade students to complete a project on electricity. We sewed simple patterns on felt, drew out the circuits, and sewed parallel circuits. I was great! The loved it and they learned basic sewing in the process. You would be surprised how well the boys did! I have one suggestion that I will also post with the conductive thread item, you should make the conductive thread in two different colors so the students can keep track of positive and negative lines. Next time I do the project, I will have them use a Sharpie to die some of the thread RED for the positive lines.

No public wish lists :(
