Knitting Natural Life- Come experience natural knitting throughout the DMC booth #715 at this years Vogue Knitting Live which begins on January 16-18, 2015 at the Marriot Marquis in NYC.
As we approach the event I will be doing a spotlight every day on the various yarns that will be available at the show, including inspirational items being made from our yarns. Today I wanted to introduce consumers to the world of Woolly Yarn.
What makes Woolly Yarn so fabulous. DMC Woolly Merino Wool is beautifully soft to the skin. Sourced from Australia it is 100% natural and renewable. Woolly’s unique quality comes from its long, thin fibres that give superior softness to the touch and a feeling of comfort when against the skin.
Woolly Yarn is available in 48 beautiful colors with patterns and inspiration. We can’t wait to show you at Vogue Knitting Live just how amazing this yarn is, plus its 100% natural and renewable, we just love that! For More info on DMC Woolly Merino Wool visit DMC UK site!
Are you excited yet about DMC Woolly Merino Wool? We are and can’t wait to share it with you. You can visit us at our booth # 715 at the show. If you can’t be there, we will be streaming photos, videos and more from the show.

I am really excited about this blog hop, because it is our very first one! I was a little nervous about it and super busy with my project last week. (No, “busy” is not my superpower, except on some days!) I want to thank Mdm Samm for calling me with the opportunity to be part of the hop and Pauline for being a great and patient cheerleader. I can’t believe I’ve been missing out on all the fun until now!
This week it’s time for mild-mannered Emma Broidery to reveal her secret true identity as Super Emma, Super Stitcher! With just a needle and DMC thread, I can save the world, one stitch at a time! But honestly, I can’t do it alone.
As Super Emma, my Superpower is Creating Community. I like to think I help bring stitchers and quilters together into amazing needlework groups and guilds. I love these extraordinary needlework communities! When stitchers come together whether we are beginners or experts, we are not just stitching thread. In a way, we are stitching strong connections between us.
As we share stories and stitches, our bonds deepen. We inspire each other with project ideas and new techniques. We cheer for each other and support each other. We matter to each other. Being together helps us to build confidence and often pushes us to challenge ourselves. A needle and thread truly can be magical! The truth is, we ALL share the same superpower! Creating community takes all of us. (And did I mention that we can save the world?)
Super Emma was designed by Brooke Nolan and is stitched with DMC Embroidery Floss, DMC Light Effects, and DMC Memory Thread on 28 count Charles Craft White Monaco, stitched over two threads. The finished piece was tacked onto a pink pillow with two trims. Don’t you love the buttons? If you feel a little like Super Emma, here is a link to the Super Emma chart.
Thank you for visiting! I will love to receive and reply to your comments! I hope you continue to see the other amazing Super Bloggers this week. I know I will.
Here is today’s list to make sure you don’t miss any!

March is National Craft Month, and to help you celebrate, we’re starting a 2-day SAL (Stitch Along) on Tuesday!
Join us as we create this fun counted thread project using 4 colors of DMC’s popular Color Variations in Size 5 Pearl Cotton. You’ll use an assortment of stitches including satin, straight stitch, herringbone stitch, the 4-sided stitch, assorted crossed stitches, and more.
The project can be finished in two sittings and the pattern features an easy-to-follow chart. Detailed instructions for turning the corners will be included in the SAL.
Gather your supplies and join us! To stitch along you will need: DMC Pearl Variations #5 in colors 4128, 4215, 4045 and 4075, a size 24 tapestry needle, a 10×10″ piece of 18-count linen or Aida cloth, scissors and a 6″ embroidery hoop.
The first half of the SAL will focus on the central motif and the first border, while the second half will show you how to work the concentric outer borders.

This year we did something a bit different and offered visitors an opportunity to learn how to avoid needlework tedium-itis by hosting a coffee break with Dr. Thread and her assistants.
Here are some of the highlights of our visit:
Dr. Steve visited with Megan Chriswisser, editor of Needlework Retailer magazine.
Capi and Lyneen from Always in Stitches, a full-service needlework and quilting store in Noblesville, Indiana came by for a visit. They’re in-store experts can help you with any handicraft project.
As did Bob and Anna from Needles & Niceties in Upland, California. I had a chance to visit their needlework shop a few months back and enjoyed visiting with them. You can read about my visit here.
Kelly Rippy and her husband Robert from The Counted Needle were here to see what’s new for their shop in Bloomington, Illinois. Their specialties are counted needlework and custom framing.
As were Carol Reeves and Mary from the Stitch and Frame Shop of Rock Hill, South Carolina. This full service needlework and frame shop is located just 30 minutes from downtown Charlotte. It’s a beautiful drive and well worth the trip.
Mary Ann Kritl, along with Julie and Connie from Reflections Framing and Stitching from Papillion, Nebraska came by to say hello as well. They’re experts at framing needlework and offer a wide variety of cross stitch and needlework supplies, books and patterns.
These are just a handful of the wonderful people who dropped in for a visit. I wish there was room in the blog for every photo!
Looking forward to another successful TNNA show next year. Thank you all for dropping by!
The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) is having their much-anticipated trade show in Nashville, Tennessee this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, March 2nd and 3rd.
This trade show is not open to the public, but gives needlework buyers from your local needlework store (LNS) and chains an opportunity to restock their inventories with the very latest fibers, designs, patterns and more…
…and we’ll be there too, showing our beautiful threads and offering ways to help beat Needlework Tedium-itis.
Did you know this dreaded scourge is the number one killer of needlework projects in the US today, and can be easily avoided?
While visiting the TNNA show, drop by DMC at TNNA in room 418 to learn more about the risk factors and a visit to the Needlework Doctor for a strong dose of needlework CPR and a free cup of coffee.
Dr. Thread will show you how to breathe new life into a needlework project using DMC Embroidery Threads, and what activities you can use to help reduce the chances of you or your customers catching Needlework Tedium-itis.
Warning: Side effects may include serenity, lower blood pressure, dangerous levels of confidence and an overall sensation of satisfaction.
If you or someone you know suffers from this terrible affliction, let the DMC Needlework Doctors in room 418 get you on the road to recovery. We also welcome “well visits” and look forward to seeing visitors at TNNA!
