Madeira USA Hosts Webinar on "Embroidering with Frosted Matt Thread"


Laconia, NH – Madeira USA will host a webinar on Wednesday, March 27, at 2:00 pm EST on “Embroidering with Frosted Matt Thread.” The webinar is intended to familiarize embroiderers with the attributes of this relatively new thread, and dispel any fears they may have in regard to trying something new. Along with a narrative that will share a basic description of the thread, how and where to use it, two industry professionals will participate, in order to familiarize embroiderers with this specialty thread.

A partner/owner of the Dallas-based Stitchin’ Chicks Embroidery, Lynda Morgan is a big fan of Frosted Matt thread. Lynda's creativity is expressed in how she selects colors and combines elements from different designs and patterns to create one of a kind specialty items. She takes classes on a regular basis to improve her skills and to learn new techniques, and when she discovered Frosted Matt thread, was delighted to add a new dimension to her embroidery. 

Paulette Bell is a freelance educator for Brother International, Home Appliance Division. She has been affiliated with the commercial embroidery industry for nearly 30 years as a shop owner, writer and most recently as an editor for Stitches Magazine. Paulette has discovered a new use for Frosted Matt where the matte finish, polyester embroidery thread excels. Paulette will share how to get the best results of using Frosted Matt to create free-standing lace and embroidery that resembles crochet.

From its use for shading and contrast, to its color-fast properties and ability to hold up to sunlight, to its use in achieving small lettering and fine details, Frosted Matt is an easy running embroidery thread that can provide many solutions for the knowledgeable embroiderer. The webinar will be recorded and available on the website the end of March.
