DVD Title: Creative Machine Embroidery with Alison Holt

Alison Holt is a world-class machine embroiderer who devoted nearly 30 years to creating, teaching and writing books about the art of free-hand Machine Embroidery. In this DVD, we explore creating flowers, foliage and landscapes with Alison as she provides step by step instruction in how to create the magnificent flowers and photo-like landscapes that have made her famous. In “Part Four – Penylan Lane” Alison combines all the skills learned in Parts 1 thru 3 and adds some new techniques — specifically working with a series of photographs to create an original machine embroidered work of art, “Penylan Lane”. “Penylan Lane” is a road in Oswestry, Shropshire, near the Welsh Border in the English countryside. It has magnificent wild flowers such as daisies, poppies, and cow parsley, hedgerows, fields, and tall wild grasses. Alison uses more than 20 colors of thread to achieve the magnificent and one of a kind landscape, “Penylan Lane”, the Cover and Centerpiece of this educational DVD. The theme music, “Penylan Lane” which plays in the background was written by the Director, Andrew Galli (ascap), specifically for the film.

    @finemofok : Yes, I …
    @finemofok : Yes, I was impressed too. The last time I saw something similar to this was when I was stationed in Korea. There was a Korean lady who would embroider or military patches by the hundreds. All done exactly like this. However, I’ve never seen a landscape get embroidered. Very impressive.
