    Hey Lynn. Thanks for this instructable. Wondering if any of the two machine threadable fibers are steel based or ferrous? Thanks.

    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.
