There are several DMC blogs (not just devoted to embroidery), and today I want to point towards the French DMC blog. Recently they had a blog post about a permanent DMC exhibition that will open at the Textile Museum Parc de Wesserling in Alsace later this year. Which is pretty great and I want to go there nooow!
What is extra cool about this exhibition is that you can be part of it!
From the DMC blog post (via Google Translate, so if the English doesn't sound quite right, it's because it's translated by a machine..)
You can also contribute to the History of DMC by sending us a letter embroidered. A large sign will be displayed with all the letters embroidered in red ( color 321 ) in an area dedicated to the Alsace region, where DMC is born. These embroideries become a subject of the permanent collection of the Museum of Textile Wesserling. embroiderers names participating in the event will be posted on a sign of thanks.So get stitching and you can be part of this exhibition. But quick - they must receive your letter/initial before May 12th. I'm really hoping I'll have time to make one. If you stitch a letter, do share it in the &Stitches Flickr group. We would really love to see it!
