DMC Memory Thread

Here's a beautiful example of DMC Memory Thread at its best. The piece was designed and stitched by Rosanna Gelpi-Houck. Memory thread has a copper core making it flexible to shape and re-shape until its just as you like it. With curves always a challenge if you desire a smooth line its worth learning the tricks and techniques of the Memory Thread. Currently available in 16 colors plus silver and gold. Rosanna's Cross was stitched on 18 count antique blue canvas and the background, stitched in Gumnut Stars, was entirely stitched prior to the glorious swirls of silver, and yes a bit of gold too. The piece is embellished with beads and swarovski crystals. For anyone interested in a stitch guide please contact me.

For those wondering more about the thread check out the link below or purchase some and have some fun. Its great for hair, beards, vines, stems or lettering just to name a few ideas off the top of my head. Perfect for names on Christmas stockings too!
