What's couching? How are couches related to electronics?
Lynne Bruning (author)  mykiscool1 year ago
Couching is a sewing term. It is when you sew either by machine or by hand a thread to a fabric by using a secondary thread over the original thread. Generally used in embroidery techniques.

Couching as a thinking term - Hackerspaces, schools and thinking zones should have couches to nap on because that interstitial space between awake and sleep is the best for brainstorming electronic projects.
Haha, the second answer is funny, thanks.
