About us...

:star: 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!

A reminder to ALL members:
Hey Everyone!! Just a bit of reminder about the Featured Folder!

Every member should submit ONE (preferably the one you are most proud of) deviation to the feature folder in the gallery.

This means every member is allowed ONLY ONE deviation in the feature gallery. Please check the feature gallery to see if you already have one in there before trying to submit another. Submitting regular items requires you to go into the group gallery and click the plus sign across from the name of that folder. For more details please revisit that blog: needles-and-thread.deviantart.…

Feature Gallery Guidelines:
:bulletred: This piece should belong in one of the major folder categories- i.e. be a piece of clothing or costume, a purse, or a bag. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.

:bulletred: Unfortunately, this can not be a piece already in the group. If you want to submit something already in the group, you should message me which piece and I will move it to the feature folder.

:bulletred: If at any time you would like for your featured piece to change, just message me and we'll make it happen!

:bulletred: This gallery is currently set so deviations need to be approved before they will appear in the gallery. So don't worry when your art doesn't immediately show up! But there is no difference in the way you submit to the feature gallery.

Also please make sure that when you're submitting your works that you are submitting to the proper folders.

Cheers!!
Chibi <3
Dear all,

I'm dreadfully sorry for my inactivity as admin, I have not forgotten about the group! This is just a quick memo that the folders about to undergo a large change. In light of responses on the last journal (from February!!! *sigh*) I will be merging have mered the costume and clothing folders into non-gendered folders.

All adult costumes and clothing will now be sorted into the same folder (still separated by category), without regard to gender. Hopefully this will make sorting easier, especially with regard to group shots and gender neutral items.

Thank you all for being a largely self-sufficient group and keeping up the excellent submissions! Please remember that if you have any contests or sewing related news, you can submit a blog to the group to keep us updated!

And if anyone else is interested in a larger admin/contributor role, please let me know!

:bulletred: Remember: Plushies are STILL NOT ALLOWED in this group! Please stop submitting them!

:bulletred: Also: ONLY ONE deviation of ANY sewn piece may be submitted to the group. Make a merged deviation or place links to other deviations in the comments section if you want people to see multiple views of your creation! THANK YOU!

:happybounce: HeartHello, DeviantArtists! I'm deviantARTDasGnomo, the new Community Volunteer of the Design and Interfaces gallery. I'm currently open for DD suggestions in that area and Official Guidelines have been already uploaded to this journal:  Design And Interfaces DD Guidelines💪😎✌️ Powerful hellos to everyone! I'm @DasGnomo and I'm the Design & Interfaces Community Volunteer at @communityrelations, I'm in charge to bring to your awesome attention amazing DeviantART works via: features, articles and Daily Deviations! I'm a humble illustrator and graphic designer from Chile living in the US. I've been working on these areas for 13 years now, I'm happy and honored to have these new responsibilities (thanks to @ekud @Moonbeam13 and @JenFruzz for trusting in me for this). I'll work hard to do my best for the community! I'm extremely grateful in advance for all the DD suggestions you'll be sending me from this day on 🙏 however there are certain objective parameters that I'll take into account at the moment of featuring a Daily Deviation.I can only take suggestions from the Designs & Interfaces gallery and all associated sub-galleries/categories.Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313:How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation? Please send me ONE note per suggestion/artist/deviationThe artist/designer is still active on DeviantART (must be active for more than 30 days)The piece you are suggesting is not part of an ongoing contest (in such case, you should wait for the contest to end, in order to suggest it)The piece you are suggesting is not infringing DeviantART Copyright PoliciesPlease, let me know if you want to remain anonymous as a suggester; if you don't specify I will assume that you want your name listed on the DD feature.Please only send your suggestion to ONE community volunteer. Here is the list of all the CV's and the galleries they are in charge to feature.You can self suggest (explaining why you deserve to be featured in your note. Also, avoid the spam) and try to give preference to other artists as well.I'll list here some objective characteristics of a DD worthy Design & Interfaces deviation: High QualityOriginality/UniquenessFunctionality/Problem SolvingExcellent use of the basic elements of Design and InterfacesSend me a note with the Title: "DD SUGGESTION" with ONE suggestion only. Don't suggest by comments.Include the deviation's :Thumbcode: in the noteClick SEND. And that's it! 👍I won't necessarily answer to all the DD suggestion notes since sometimes they are too many to keep count, so featuring your suggested DD will remain as a surprise.Any suggested deviation can also be feature in futured journals, being a DD or not. So keep suggesting deviations, please.Remember to check today's Daily Deviations!Fav, comment and share this journal with your friends! 😘

I humbly invite you to check it out, if you got any amazing deviation in mind to be suggested, please send me a note.

Also, I want to invite you all to Mrs-Durden 's "I Challenge You" 2019's edition activity for a chance to win amazing prizes like 1 year core membership, points and more! Get in the "Design and Interfaces" category and you'll be receiving very interesting and great challenges from me! ;D

I Challenge You: 2019 EditionDear all,
The veterans among you may remember a huge challenge competition I first launched back in 2015 called "I Challenge You". The first time around, the premise was that deviants were paired up and would give each other a challenge to be completed within a deadline, for a chance to win a prize as a duo or trio. The second time around, each participant was assigned a Community Volunteer who would give them a challenge to be completed. 
If you're curious, you can go look at the old journals here and here. The second edition blew up almost immediately, if I recall we had around 300-400 sign-ups. Well, it's been years and it's time to bring back this challenge game again! I'll try to make it happen once per year, hence why this is "2019 Edition" ;)
The idea explained in a few wo


I'll be waiting for you all and have an amazing day today! :D Love

Hello everyone, I thought I would comment an updated post here since it's been a bit. I am considering commissions for right now.

I am looking for Human Plush Artists that I haven't commissioned yet. They are hard to find, I know. But anyway, I am indeed looking for them.

Please know that I'm not looking for amigurumi, crotcheted, knitted or needle felt ones. These are NoNos.

The yarn thing just doesn't interest me and although needle felt plush are definitely crafted well like a plush sculpture, they aren't snuggly.

So, just to sum it up, looking for human plush artists I haven't commissioned before, no yarn or needle felt.

If interested, please reply to this comment or note me.

Thank you in advance for your time!
