Learn a New Technique – DMC Stitch Videos

Saturday, March 26, 2011

Lights, camera…. action!

DMC has posted several awesome new stitch videos that are sure to inspire you to try a new technique, or learn a new embroidery stitch!

Check out the “Advanced Surface Embroidery Techniques” video to learn all about with the Long and Short Stitch including shading with additional colors of floss.

Decorative surface stitchesincluding French Knots, Stem Stitch, Chain Stitch, Straight Stitch and Blanket Stitch to add detail and dimension to this colorful undersea scene.

Want to make the Octopus Project too?  Click on the photo to get the pdf pattern.

The How to Punch Needle video will introduce you to this fun – and fast – technique for creating textured, dimensional embroidery.

The video shows you how easy it is to use a punch needle tool using DMC Embroidery Floss and Specialty Threads, and  fluffy Owl Pattern is a perfect choice for using this technique.

I love how different lengths of punch needle loops are used to add texture and personality to the owl. You can get the pattern for the owl here.

Our “Discover Half Cross Stitch” video will guide you through the steps of working this time-saving technique.

The yummy frosted Cupcake is a perfect first-time project for Half Cross Stitch.  It’s fun to stitch, and is 100% calorie-free!

Stitch the cupcake on Aida, or a pre-made, ready-to-stitch towel for a sweet handmade gift!

The “How to the Work with DMC Color Infusions Memory Thread” video will show you how to use couching to attach this wonderful, fiber-wrapped wire thread to the surface of your projects.

You can try the technique too using the Flower Vase pattern, stitched using DMC Embroidery Threads, with Memory Thread outlines and tendrils.

Or, watch the “Discover More Techniques with Memory Thread” to learn how to make even more creative embellishments and beautiful details using DMC’s Color Infusions Memory Thread.

Now that’s my idea of entertainment!

Happy Stitching!
