Sundance "Sparkles"

An adventure into new stitching territory

"Sparkles" is an embellishment trim from Sundance Designs that was introduced at TNNA (The National NeedleArts Assoc.) in January. It’s a tubular woven rope like product that can be stretched thin, scrunched big, and pressed flat. It can be couched, stitched, stuffed, shredded, twisted, and turned. It's about the size of a pencil and available in twelve colors and packaged in two yard lengths. The rich metallic luster combined with simple techniques will amaze even the most advanced needlepointer.
