The Desert Dreams of Dirty Needle Embroidery


Gear Threads Is The Mr X Stitch Machine Embroidery Column - Presented By Urban Threads!

Welcome to Gear Threads, where we showcase artists who are elevating machine embroidery to new heights!

Somewhere outside of Reno, Cody McElroy, better known to the interwebs as Dirty Needle Embroidery, is keeping the art of freemotion embroidery alive. From classic little patches to rich paintings in thread, Dirty Needle brings a fresh perspective to a medium that’s existed just about as long as sewing machines.
