I work at a fabric store, and every so often someone will come in looking for conductive thread. Which of course we don't carry. Any source info you can provide would be very helpful :)

Nice 'ible. The video is straightforward and easy to follow.

I actually bought mine at Walmart for around $4.00. I believe this is the exact stuff I used:

I don't think it was advertised as conductive, but instead they called it Metallic. I tried it out and sure enough it worked.
