1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Help with washing. Please on: November 01, 2005 09:33:21 PM
Hello all,
I have some questions.
 I am in dire need of some crafty advice. I just finished a embroidery portrait of Bette Davis and background for a school project. unfortunately (self taught) I used pencil as sketch marks. Can i hand wash the material in woolite? I bought woolite and thought I could wash it in cold water by hand but I spent so much time on this and I am afraid my thread might bleed.
Question#2: After(if the washing is OK) it is dry .. has anyone ever done a "wash" with watercolor or gauche on material? my grandmother use to do watercolor on material and I thought it might give the piece some depth since its for a non-traditional illustration piece.
I would greatly appreciate any advice! thank you so much.

I am looking for a mentor/advice. I am a senior in design/visual communication and want to pursue a career in design/diy/publishing. I have worked very hard and am an accomplished student and designer. My goal is to work for a publishing company that produces diy publications. Then open an independent company and publish diy mags and special intest books. any advice/experience would be greatly appreciated.
THANKS! Smiley
