Kreinik: Embroidery thread to the stars

If the action on HBO's "Game of Thrones" gets bloody crazy, focus on the costumes for a minute—can you spot the Kreinik threads? One of the designers, Michele Carragher, uses Kreinik metallics for embroidery on some of the costumes.

It's exciting to work with super-talented Michele, and even more exciting to see the same threads you use for your needlepoint/cross-stitch/embroidery featured on an actor or actress. Back in August, we rushed some to the set in Northern Ireland for emergency costume embroidery. Unfortunately, we can't show photos of this season's costumes due to legal reasons, but Michele says they are just as spectacular as in past seasons. The thread (our 3/8" Trim) "was for something special, so will be worth the wait‎," Michele said.

In the meanwhile, to satisfy our craving for embroidery on the big screen, Michele shares this link to a film she worked on and used Kreinik threads. It is called "Queen of the Desert," released in 2015 starring Nicole Kidman. Michele worked on ball gowns and corsages for Nicole's character in the film. Just think: Kreinik threads on Nicole Kidman!

Take a look at the photos of the Thistle Ball Gown for the gorgeous costume and details. Click here for more details on show she made the gowns in the film:
