Marsala, color of the year on EweKnitIt looks like 2015 is the year of Marsala, a beautiful wine-colored tone – according to the Pantone Color Report.

Over on EweKnit, I was tickled to see our very own DMC floss featured in their lovely collage of Marsala-inspired fibers.

What do you think of the official color of 2015?

Thread Winding Ideas on Sew We StitchYou’ll find some wonderful Thread Winding Tips on Sew We Stitch! Using a DMC Bobbin Winder, Plastic Bobbins and a power drill, a determined stitcher wound up an impressive array of DMC threads – a full 10 boxes of them! (How many do you have?)

She has lots of helpful tips for the process, and a tantalizing thread collection.

I love the pink shades she chose – DMC 600, 601, 602, 604, 605, but wouldn’t it also be fun to celebrate the 2015 color of the year by using a variety of wine-colored tones?

    I really like the Marsala color of the year. It’s such a nice woodsy deep rose/red, good for a wide range of projects not limited by gender, age, etc, etc. And you can change mood by using a range of colors to set up with it. I think it’s a real winner.
