Meredith Scheff came up with this ingenious sew-though soft circuit technique using flexible copper clad laminate, which she etched and then ran through the sewing machine. Keep an eye out here on CRAFT later today for a video interview with Meredith at Maker Faire where she shows off a very cool application of this technique! For now, check out her full tutorial at The Steampunk Workshop.
