Stitching Circuits

To connect the hardware with the book I used conductive thread. I chose to buy it from kitronic in the end, as it has a relatively low resistance, it does not unravel easily and a good price!

First I stitched it to felt.

Look at the messy back! I hid some of the wires under the felt.

Then, I stitched both the circuits and the felt to the book, and connected to the conductive threads I had already sewn into the spine (see post on binding).
