Stitch Pink!

Saturday, August 14, 2010

In honor of our promotional Stitch Pink product, DMC is launching our 2010 Stitch Pink Campaign to involve stitchers in the fight against Breast Cancer.

How can you get involved?

Purchase the new DMC Stitch Pink Accessory Kit. The kit comes with 3 of our most popular stitching accessories in an attractive shade of pink and includes: DMC titanium stainless steel embroidery scissors imported from Italy, a pink DMC Needle Threader, and 25 DMC Pink Reusable Plastic Bobbins.

In addition, the kit includes four pink stitching and craft projects including an inspirational cross stitch chart, 2 pink felt pin cushions, and a pink friendship bracelet.

Kits will be available at JoAnn stores shortly, and willl definitely be available before the end of this month (August).

DMC’s Stitch-Pink-Stitch-Along

Join DMC as we stitch to help find the cure!

DMC will be releasing free pink charts for you to stitch,which you can then send to the DMC offices, so that we can finish all designs into a quilt.

(NOTE: fabric should be 14-count white Aida)

The completed Pink Quilt will be auctioned off on Ebay, with proceeds going to a breast cancer organization. The organization will be announced at a later time.

Deadline for all project submissions is November 15th.

Mail all project submissions to:

DMC Corporation
10 Basin Drive Suite 130
Kearny, NJ 07032

More Free charts to follow!

Help find a cure! Donate to a breast cancer organization online!

      Hi Marian,
      Have you checked with local needlework retailers in your part of the world? They may know of a similar campaign to benefit breast cancer research in your country. If not, it’s a perfect opportunity for you to lead such a worthwhile event. Let us know what you find out, and we’ll help spread the word!

    I’ll be purchasing several of these, and will send one to my sister in Mexico City. You know, as a breast cancer survivor, this is near and dear to me and I appreciate the time and effort DMC is putting into this.
    I understand every country has their own programs and this is an American event. I hope other countries including my own native country will do something similar.

    Just saw this information at About.com/cross stitch. How exciting and what a beautiful pattern. I printed it off and will pick up the variations threads tomorrow. Not sure how large the final block should be when stitched but will leave plenty around the edge for trimming and stitching.

    Maybe Marian from Australia can order the kit online from JoAnn.

    Ineather – unfortunately JoAnn’s online doesn’t like shipping internationally. I’ve looked at this as I live in New Zealand.

    I really wish this was available in Canada I’d purchase one for myself and my mother. I was looking on the Jo-Anne’s website to see if I could order this online but I don’t even see it online. =(

    Dear Emma, I live in Hungary, Europe, and cannot purchase the kit itself, but I can buy all the given floss and canvas. Can I support you with only sending my finished work, without purchasing the kit? Thanks, Cricket

      Hi Cricket. Thank you for the message. You do not need to purchase the kit to participate. We would love to recieve a block from Hungary!

    Can you submit your own design for the quilt? If so, what are the rules (size, count, color, etc.)? I have something in mind to do for a quilt block, but I didn’t know if you only had to do what you have talked about. By the way, I just ordered my kit because my sister and cousin are breast cancer survivors.

      Hi Sue,
      For consistency, we would like to stick with the 3 designs posted. However, if you wish to design a piece, I would love to showcase it in the blog!

    Hi Sue,

    I’ve now moved on from stitching the pink flower blocks to the Distance Queen Pink crown but am having trouble obtaining the ‘Memory Thread’ – DMC do not it priced. Is there anywhere in Vermont that I can get it, or, is there somewhere on-line in the USA that I can purchase on-line and get my daughter to ship it down here to me in Australia??

    Thanks, Deanna

      Sue, the Memory Thread is available at many independent needlework retailers as well as Michaels stores and Hobby Lobby. A good online source for Memory Thread is Herrschner’s

    I have a question.
    Why did DMC choose only cross stitch/needlepoint designs? There are others out there who embroider, and might like to contribute, but who do not do needlepoint/cross stitch. Thanks

      We have one person who is creating a surface embroidered version of the floral block. Feel free to be creative. ~Emma
