&Stitches translated the details from the DMC French blog - here's all you have to do - but HURRY - they need to receive your initial by May 12th!!

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.
