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.
ih presented at PyCon 2019: Katie McLaughlin - A Right Stitch-up: Creating embroidery patterns with Pillow
DMC (Dollfus-Mieg et Compagnie), the textile company mentioned several times
Python Pillow (continuation of PIL, the Python Imaging Library)
Stitching patterns really are a kind of domain specific visual programming language (see the response, "What is this, assembler?")
Still here? How about some extra images?
