Soft Circuit Sewing

If you are interested in where I got the supplies to make the "soft circuit LED projects" in Stitch-n-Save class, here are my sources: 

 
 
Coin cell battery (CR 2032)  PRT-00338
LilyPad coin cell battery holder-switched-20 mm DEV13883 ROHS
LED assorted (20 pack) COM-12062 ROHS
 
Conductive thread-stainless steel-large spool (60g) DEV-11791 ROHS
OR for a smaller quantity at a smaller price...
Conductive thread -stainless steel-bobbin-30 ft. 
 
 
 
Lowery's Sewing and Vacuum Center, 707 E. Winona Ave, Warsaw, IN 
 
Assorted colors of felt - bought off the bolt
Chenille needles size 24  (found by the embroidery thread)
 
 
For sewing on decorations, scrap fabric and all purpose sewing thread works. I like to use a size 7 embroidery needle (found at Lowery's or Wal-Mart).
 
Have fun!
