Elana Hashman (Python Software Foundation Fellow and open source hacker) and Katie McLaughlin (Python Software Foundation Fellow and crafter) join us to talk about F(L)OSS meets embroidery and cross stitching (FOSS stitching?) including a significant conversation about FLOSS vs embroidery floss.

Much is also conversed about ih, a project started by Katie with contributions from Elana, a python project which helps generate embroidery patterns from images.


Still here? How about some extra images?
