    Is 6 strand embroidery floss appropriate for this particular technique?

      Hello Cindy,

      It’s not the best option. It is likely that the plies will split and separate which may make the finished product look messy. Pearl cotton would be a better option. However, if you’ve got some 6 ply embroidery floss on hand that you want to try, give it whirl on some practice fabric and see what happens!

    Hi, thanks for a great video. You can use a top loading bobbin for this technique. You can also use the machine’s decorative stitches also with the heavy fibers and it looks beautiful! Thank you.
