Textile Messages focuses on the emerging field of electronic textiles, or e-textiles - computers that can be soft, colorful, approachable, and beautiful. E-textiles are articles of clothing, home furnishings, or architectures that include embedded computational and electronic elements. This book introduces a collection of tools that enable novices - including educators, hobbyists, and youth designers - to create and learn with e-textiles. It then examines how these tools are reshaping technology education - and DIY practices - across the K-16 spectrum, presenting examples of the ways educators, researchers, designers, and young people are employing them to build new technology, new curricula, and new creative communities.
