| The focus of Needles and Thread is costumes, clothing, and cloth accessories |
In the absence of any groups specifically for those who sew costumes and clothing, I created "Needles and Thread" the group for all those who like to sew what they wear! I hope this club will in time become a network to unite all those deviants who like to sew.
If you like to sew, please consider joining and showing off your artwork!
Membership We are always looking for members, but members should be deviants who sew and display their work on DA. Please see the blog entry about "Becoming a Member" if you are interested in joining: [link]
Submitting As with all groups, we do have submission guidelines. ALL NEW MEMBERS should read these rules before beginning to submit. The blog about submissions will also instruct you on how to submit to the group! [link]
Featured Submissions The Needles and Thread Feature gallery is designed to display the best of ALL members. Please read the rules about this gallery before submitting a piece to it: [link]
Group Favorites ALL members are welcome to suggest favorites for the group, these should not be your own works! (There are a few works by members because I favorited their pieces before they joined) If you would like to suggest a favorite, all you need to do is click the button at the top of the group home page!
Member's Online Stores
Many of our members sell their wonderful creations online! Please refer to the list of member's stores if you are interested in purchasing items similar to those in our gallery! [link]
If you'd like to help manage this group, please message me or send a note to the group
You may also message me or the group if you ever have suggestions for improving the group! I will frequently update and streamline the group when I see things that can be made better, but appreciate a regular member's point of view on what can be done to improve!
We welcome and will advertise affiliate clubs by request. Members should feel free to suggest any helpful links or websites.
