An embroidering journey
It often happens to travel by train. Just for pleasure in order to visit a far town or for the joy of meeting one's relatives. By the way, even if sometimes trains make us angry with all their delays, they are maybe one of the most relaxing means of transport
In fact almost everybody loves sleeping between a stop and the other and how many books have you read on the train?
Maybe the most beautiful readings are those made on the seats of an old and ruined coach!
So, just on a train we can spend some time doing our favorite hobby, that pass-time which does not make us think about everyday's frenzy: embroidery. For those who travel a lot (commuters, both students and workers) and for those who cannot stay calm and look at the moving landscape out of the window, a wonderful solution to relax during the journey is embroidering.
Essential are small and very useful instruments like the thread-gatherer, the scissor-fobs, the travel organizers…
Necessary are cutters like this one by DMC in vintage style
, the jewel by Clover with a thread cutter
and the ring with cutter for the threads by Clover
. All with a blade in inox white metal, they are fundamental to easily and quickly cut the thread. More comfortable and less dangerous than the scissors: a real risk for our fingers if put in our bag during a journey!
For such a reason DMC
has also created its Vintage scissors fob
. Elegant and with a rétro style, this fob protects the points and it allows you to put your scissors in your bag with no risk. And always by DMC
the practical needles case
, once again in vintage style and very useful to collect, organize and avoid to lose (above all!) your needles.
Finally a unique and fundamental accessory if you like embroidering during the journey is this little necklace for accessories
, with glass beads, handmade and golden. Hang on it scissors, cutters and needle-cases. Everything will actually be in your hands!
There comes the Spring
Spring has officially come and even if the sun is still playing hide and seek with the clouds, the first flowers are blooming and the temperatures are getting milder.
To this season are dedicated a lot of products, from books to charts, from fabrics to kits. And also flower-shaped buttons, like these very nice Parma red flowers
by Butterfly Couture
and the bags and organizers on the colors of spring like the very useful Mini Craft
. And it smells of spring the sampler by Madame la Fée ABC Printemps
which collects flowers and ladybirds around two children and a little dog welcoming the new season. A warmer welcome is that by Isabelle Vautier
in her Bienvenue Printemps
, as usual a one-color embroidery which is very elegant and fine. Renato Parolin
with his peculiar style speaks about robins and flowers in Primavera
and finally Creation Crystelle
interprets with her own style this season in her Doux Printemps
If these two books are not enough, let's have a look at the page called Spring
of our catalog.
