TurtleStitch is freely available software that enables the generation and stitching of patterns using a digital embroidery machine. It gives programmatic control of the machine, enabling a wide range of patterns to be designed and stitched onto fabric. It was developed by Andrea Mayr-Stalder, and runs in a browser window.
TurtleStitch is used in WMG for outreach activities, as a means of raising awareness of the breadth of engineering. The WMG Outreach team has created a number of resource cards to support its use. These cards introduce a set of useful skills, outline some potential projects and suggest some concepts to explore further.
1) Basic Skill Cards
2) Project Cards
3) Investigation Cards
