Thread Velvet Pillow




People have been embroidering for centuries, a technique that has become more and more popular with advances in technology.

Martha demonstrates an exciting new technique called thread velvet embroidery, which was conceived by the talented designers at the Husqvarna Embroidery Center in Sweden, to create a magnificent thread velvet pillow.

The Husqvarna Viking "Designer Diamond" machine provides owners with many exclusive features, such as the Embroidery Advisor, which recommends what needle, stabilizer, and thread you should use. It also offers the largest hoop and work space ever made on a sewing machine.

If you're interested in making the thread velvet pillow, get more information about the Husqvarna Viking "Designer Diamond" machine at Find Martha Stewart Embroidery Designs on

    I loved Martha's demonstration of the Thread Velvet designs. I purchased the same designs a few months ago but have yet to stitch them out. I've had the Designer SE for about 3 years now and would love to upgrade to the Diamond because it's such an awesome machine but, unfortunately, it is not in my budget. Love the sewing
