What is Thread Painting?
Thread painting or free-motion machine embroidery, is a unique way of "painting" images
onto fabric. Generally, the machine is set on straight or zig-zag stitch formats, but decorative
stitches may be applied to yield additional texture. The feed dogs are down, giving the sewer
freedom to move the fabric in any direction, while thread paints a picture.
