Recommends it for: Either fabric crafters or electronic crafters that want to bridge the gap between them.
I found this book to be a very friendly middle ground between the fabric crafty type and the electronics crafty type. The book begins with a simple few page introduction to how to thread a needle and how to light up an LED, so either group could probably get something out of this book.
The rest of the book consists of a few specific projects, and some extra ideas which are more complicated. All of the projects have color photographs and very nice illustrations. I don't expect that I would actuall
These projects are very good starting points for someone interested in adding high-tech elements to their fashion/jewelry projects. They aren't too over the top (like another resource I looked at), and they are interesting and well-conceived. Though there is a short tutorial on sewing techniques included, I think these projects are really better attempted by at least an intermediate sewer.
Fans of Project Runway will remember the geeky Diana Eng. In this DIY craft/fashion book, she brings simple technology to crafters. While many of the projects are a variation on the use of LED lights or putting heaphones into something, it's an interesting twist on the standard DIY fare. Of course now I'm thinking what I can put LED lights into.
I haven't made anything from this book just yet, but I really love the projects they have going here. I think I will make the purse that lights up when your phone rings. Too cool! It has also given me a few ideas of my own. Now I only need the time to do it! :)

Neat ideas, but I don't think I will make anything from this book right now. It does seem like a good reference though for future projects.

While I wasn't quite on board with many of the projects in the book, what a neat idea, and fabulous starting point!!!
Good ideas and understandable tutorials, covers a broad range of technologies and also basic sewing techniques. Definitely nice for inspiration.
Basically, covering existing technology with fabric, minimal circuit building.
would love to take a class to learn these techniques!
