If you received an LED that is not yet soldered onto the PCB with the sewable connections, you need to solder the LED onto the board. See the following picture for the chamfered corner indicating the correct position of the LED: If you received an LED that is not yet soldered onto the PCB with the sewable connections, you need to solder the LED onto the board.

## Connecting LEDs to the card10 ## Connecting LEDs to the card10
You need to make three connections from the card10 to the LED. Before you start sewing, check that the PCB is aligned so none of the sewn connections cross.

Not all 6 sewable connections are used (see below), so you can use non-conductive thread to attach the LED board with the unused sewable corners. Not all 6 sewable connections are used (see below), so you can use non-conductive thread to attach the LED board with the unused sewable corners.
Next we give you the connections you need to make, followed by some tips for sewing with conductive thread. Next we give you the connections you need to make, followed by some tips for sewing with conductive thread.
