MaryKate Noeske, Threadworker

A single thread contains the potential to become all sorts of things: a woven fabric, a knitted sweater, a twisted rope, an embroidered tapestry. This transformation from thread to creation is what MaryKate calls “threadworking” and has been a life-long passion for her. Machine Embroidery combines the best of technology and craft: embroidery patterns are digitized and tweaked on the computer, then transferred to Lady Stardust (the embroidery machine’s nickname) to be stitched out into awesome patches, pouches, banners, and more. Plum 9 Studio is where all this threadworking happens!
