Threads for ANG 2020 Virtual Seminar Class Interchange by Linda Reinmiller

My ANG Seminar class with stitching involved is Interchange by Linda Reinmiller. These fun threads will be a diagonal band sampler. This will make the third and very different band sampler for me this year! Odd how that just happened but things do tend to occur in 3s.

The other 2 classes from Seminar are notebook classes. The Susan Hoekstra Teaching Needlework 101 held over 5 two-hour Zoom classes was excellent. And, I am not sure when Linda Reinmiller will hold her computer class on publishing needlepoint instructions.

The kit for Interchange arrived and class starts Monday. More threads!! The balls of threads except for one from DMC are all Finca by Presencia (#8, 12, and 16). I will ask Linda why she selected more Presencia over DMC but I haven’t tried them before and it is always good to try a new thread. And, such pretty colors that are just so bright and bold. Fun! By working on the black 18 count canvas, the colors will really pop.

Absolutely love the colors! And you will love using the FICA Presencia – it’s a great Pearl cotton that is nice to work with.

What beautiful colors t work with, Melita! I have used Presencia in the past and love them. She may have chosen them because if you find a color in Perle 8 in Presencia, you can find that same color in all the sizes! DMC does not always have the same shade in all the sizes.

Good to know!

You can’t get a lot of colors in DMC #8 and especially #12 pearl cottons. Presencia has all the same colors in all the different weights of pearl cotton. And Presencia cottons are a higher quality cotton as well, if I’m remembering correctly. I’m sure that’s why she chose the Finca by Presencia. It’s a lovely thread. I’ve used it in a few things.

Okay. Good reason to use it then. Thanks.
