My wee thread (pun not intended, but we'll go with it!) on the pattern darning #embroidery on Claire's "Dressage" dress in #Outlander Season 2
The dress had been made from woven upholstery fabric that Terry ( .@OutlanderCostum ) had found in the Britex fabric store in SF (…)
The dress had been made up with an asymmetric bodice, and I was asked if I could #embroider a flower on to the right-hand side, and if I could do it on the machine. The bodice had metal boning and I had rayon/viscose, wool or metallic threads, so that wasn't possible.

1 - It's Monday! That means it's #threadtalk time. But today we're doing a bit of a retrospective.

Somehow, I've done 16 of these already!

So get your bookmarks ready, we're about to do a #ThreadofThreadtalk.
2 - First up is #chintz. You might think of it as your grandmother's cushions, but it's really a remarkable history that takes us to India and the history of print cotton.

We also get our first glimpse into sumptuary laws and MURDER.

3 - The Lure of Timeless #taffeta teaches us about "scroop" (the sound it makes) & brings a bit more insight past 80s prom gowns. I was surprised at how old taffeta is!

I adore the look & feel of taffeta, personally. And moiré is a personal obsession.

1 - Welcome to #ThreadTalk. This week’s subject: #embroidery.

This fabric art—both fine and folk — is a world heritage art, meaning its inception goes back before recorded times.

So tonight, I’m taking you on a tour around the world. V & A Museum - Mantua - This is a magnificent example of Eng
2 - The word "embroider" comes to English by way Frankish and Proto-German & may mean “braid” or “embellishment.”

From simple decorative stitches to complex beaded patterns, embroidery is often a matter of national pride and identity, too, like this Croatian blouse. Blouse from the Met Museum, Croatia.  - Highly embroidered b
3 - The width and breadth of the embroidery on Earth is striking in variety & beauty. It transcends class, status, and rank & has been used both as symbols of the oppressed and the oppressor.

This hand-stitched Mandarin rank badge is from the Qing Dynasty in China.

I've been wanting to talk about this lady all week. From her account for her cat @ViciousMoggie who really throws her shade, to #mindingmammy leaving working in the games industry behind & being a full time carer @LittleMissAoife is the reason @moattheatre is on @ireland
@LittleMissAoife cared for her mother with her whole heart & gave up her own passions in that time. No matter what you think of a person, look at how they treat others. Two wonderful humans here who's story was heard by many #reallife #grabthetissues…
Never ask me not to say much as then I will say lots! Aoife joined us to be our 'Marketing Department' two & half months ago. Her sense of humour is PRurrfect for theatre life #embroidery is her chill space, when her cat isn't lying on it threatening her #rainbow #totesforrepeal
