Hi. My name is Marianne. Welcome to my new store. I love fabric, sewing, embroidery, and anything creatively made! I am lucky to have a wonderful mother who taught me I could make anything I wanted to! My inspiration for The Painted Thread came from all of the precious pictures my kids would draw for me. I just fell in love with all of their adorable & silly drawings, and wanted to do something more than pin them to my fridge, or eventually stick them in a shoe box! I began to teach myself how to digitize their artwork. I stitched dozens of pictures with my embroidery machine and now I had their art in frames, on fabric, pillows, aprons, tote bags, etc. Each one was cuter than the next - and the art just seemed to pop and take on a new life!
I have also digitized many photographs. This one of a kind rendition, renders a beautiful elegant art piece that you will have as a family heirloom for generations to come. These are truly amazing and actually make your photograph come alive!
I truly have a passion for creating unique and original art, no matter what the medium is. When I create, I am most happy, so what ever you receive from me, you can be sure it comes with lots of TLC!
