Last Friday we issued a call on Facebook for men who stitch – we’re planning a series of posts to feature this wonderful part of our stitching community.
We’ve received many comments and suggestions – and many of you pointed out skilled male embroiderers like Luiz from the blog Embroiderland.
I am awed by his imaginative and colorful interpretations of Take A Stitch Tuesday stitches, like the gorgeous piece on the left which uses DMC Pearl Cotton in sizes 5, 8, and 12, among other threads.
Isn’t his work gorgeous? I love the effect he creates with vibrant colors and deftly stitched textures on natural linen backgrounds.
I recommend a click on each photo for the large size, descriptions of the threads, and list of stitches used in each piece.
His blog is in Portuguese, but he has a handy translator on each page, if you need it!
So, are you a man who stitches?
We’d love to meet you, too! Please send us an email at Emma@dmcus.com – we’d love to hear your story!
