Today was my first time on this forum and it seems like it's all involved with machine embroidery. Did i miss the boat somewhere and there's another site for hand work? My Daddy passed away in June and now Mama is talking about getting back into the hand work. Grandma, several of her sisters, Mama, & I did a lot of it when I was younger. it sounds like we will be a minority.

Has anyone ever done a style of work called "Threading"? You hold VERY bright colored yarn behind your white material then, using white quilting thread, you sew back and forth underneath the bright yarn trapping it in the material and raising some. after you're finished the bright yarn can be seen through the white and forms the picture. Just thought I would ask.
