[ PAINT WITH THREAD ]

 

Needlepainting is my preferred and most loved embroidery technique. You may know this method as long and short stitch, thread painting or silk shading. It is essentially a very free and non restrictive way to embroider. It is ideal for filling large surface areas of fabric, and it is essentially like painting on a canvas, but rather than using paint, you are using thread. I utilise this embroidery method within all of my embroideries as it is perfect for stitching natural forms.
