Rennie Mackintosh Rose by Carolyn Sinclair
Carolyn Sinclair is a textile artist/designer and an expert in computer embroidery and software. She has contributed to our Blog on two previous occasions with ‘Seahorses’ and ‘Machine Cut Mat’ and as a recognised teacher of embroidery machines and embroidery software, is one of the experts who writes for the Bernina Blog.
Carolyn tells us she created this piece using dedicated embroidery software, specifically designed for a two-day class she was teaching.
Apart from being a beautiful example of several machine embroidery techniques, this panel also demonstrates the many benefits of using Lutradur as a base material.
Carolyn says she chose Lutradur 100 for several reasons –
1. As a stand alone panel, the fabric needed to look the same both sides.
2. The fabric had to cut well and cleanly, to allow sections to be removed.
3. It had to support a lot of stitching without distorting or tearing.
As can be seen in the photographs above, the panel has a considerable amount of satin stitch. Normally, such a high density of stitching would cause distortion, but the Lutradur 100 has maintained its shape.
