“As an artist, I find the beauty and structure of embroidery thread is qualitatively unique. It traffics in optical color perception providing a lenticular opportunity due to the tri-lobal structure of the thread and its ability to bend light.” To quote Jane McKeating, “Color drips off the needle every bit as richly as from a brush.”
