Thread-u-cation Thursdays: French Knot Video

Following is a movie on how to make a French Knot. The actress in this video is not up for an Academy Award but the Foreign Film Societies are sure to give it some sort of recognition. Maybe best short film featuring an embroidery stitch and a fused art quilt?

Thanks Laura. Seeing a technique really helps those of us that are visual thinkers. The clue on pulling the thread slowly is great. That is probably why I never could make French Knots.

Your hands look wonderful for this time of year, especially since you live in the Midwest. Mine look as though they have been "buffed" with a cheese grater. Great tutorial.

Very clear demonstration. I have read the explanation many times. Seeing it done suggests it really is possible. :)

I guess I am doing them right, lol.
I have to remind myself not to be tight or pull hard, so I get a nice little knot.

Seeing you stitch this French Knot is very helpful! I've done these on the sewing machine but you make me want to give it a whirl by hand! Thanks for sharing this foreign film! I'm completely dumbfounded, however, that you're not nominated for an Academy Award!
