Hoops, Cheater Quilts, and LACE

Hey Embroidery Friends!

We hope you all are staying safe, healthy, and creative! We had an absolutely wonderful time with our good friend Reen Wilcoxson of Embroidery Garden today on our live session. We talked about her collaboration with DIME’s My Lace Maker software on her lace collection, her new space, all the new monster hoop sizes, the ways you get to “cheat” with a cheater quilt, and more!! We even had a giveaway (;

Lace!

I’m so excited to reveal a unique collaboration with Angela Wolf of AngelaWolf.com.  Angela and I have been working on this for several months and finally – we can show you what we’ve been up to. If you don’t know Angela, you’re going to love her work.  A fashion designer at heart, Angela has created a new embroidery collection for dime – Angela Wolf’s A Touch of Lace Collection 1. She came to this task with a true designer’s eye and designed lace elements to fill hemlines, sleeve inserts, pant legs and more.  She told me she’s always been on the lookout for just the right lace to add to her garments. Instead of shopping, she starting drawing and the results are fantastic!

Whether you use a single-needle machine like Angela did here.

Or a multi-needle machine, the results are beautiful!
