Still we have to attach controllers to fabric in a reliable and nice-looking connection. A very nice technique by Leah Buechley (http://www.cs.colorado.edu/~buechley/engineering/fabric_PCB.html) who irons laser-cut fabric pcbs on fabric exists. Unfortunately we do not have a laser cutter. As we will stick (for this time) to regular etched pcbs we only have to connect the output pins to fabric so we can use a very quick and dirty variation. I partly cut out stripes stick the pins through from the other side and glue them together. Now I can sew to the textile databus.
