Thread painting is layers and layers of thread applied using free-motion embroidery on a domestic sewing machine. The thread is stitched on a fabric background and creates original designs based on inspiring images like a favourite view, a beautiful sunset, serene scene or compelling creature. Much like pencil crayon, the layers of thread create shading and texture. Sometimes is it used as an accent or embellishment or “thread sketch”, sometimes is it the primary medium.
