Like all battery-operated electronics, there is a positive and negative terminal to each LED. Only one strand of conductive thread should only be touching the positive terminals of the battery and the LEDs, while another strand only touches the negative terminals. Once the circuit is created by the conductive thread receiving power from the battery and transferring that power to the LEDs, you will have light!

The smart phones and tablets of today no longer operate with pressure-sensitive touchscreens. Today's touchscreen technology works from electric current. Our bodies carry electric current very well. Fibers such as cotton, wool, polyester, rayon, leather, etc. don't conduct electricity very well.
