  1. Hi Miss Trish, I am wondering if you would consider ever offering the DVD in a downloadable format? I haven’t got a CD drive in my machine due to needing a solid state drive and we do not own a DVD player. A downloadable file ( I understand it would be big) would be a great help. Thank you


  2. j’aimerai acheter le DVD mais je ne parle pas ni ne comprend l’anglais. pensez-vous que je puisse quand même apprendre ? je vous ai déjà acheté 2 kits, je n’ai pas osé les commencer !!! merci. Chantal


  3. I would like to by your DVD, but before I want to know if a french translation is considered.
    Thanks for your answer


  4. hello, I’m very interested in the dvd ‘The long & the short of it – a dvd tutorial’. the question is: where can I buy this dvd ? Thanks for any reply and keep up the good work!


  5. Hi Trish Thank You so much for your beautiful book, Colour Confidence which I bought today at my favorite store Out-of-Hand. I can’t wait to get started…..I recently watched again your DVD and am very excited to start one of your projects in the book, the tufted flycatcher or the bee eater friends….oh my and then the flowers……not to mention my thanks for the many hours devoted by you to show colour and it’s many uses in this art form…..Love it Love it Love it… so again Many Thanks………Maureen in Alberta Canada


  6. I just want to say that I feel it is very important to have both the book for beginners and the CD/DVD. I have both now, and received my giant order of embroidery threads today. I am learning and trying not to get too discouraged because I am not as good as Trish. Hope to be someday.


  7. Hi, it’s I again. I put in the CD because I was having trouble with the DVD. I read the “Read this first” part. There I found that I can play the DVD on my Windows Media Player. I am now happily watching where it left off on the flower. Sorry I caused you so much trouble. Sandra. PS: It is very important for everyone to read the text on the CD before using either disc.


  8. Trish, I saw the dvd until it was showing how to do the flower. It played well until then. Suddenly it just stopped. I have been looking for programs that will play this dvd. What program do you use to play it? I can’t see the rest of it. I could never have done anything with this thread painting if I had not seen as much of this as I did. I really need to see the rest of it. I will get a program to play it, but I don’t know which one will do it. Please let me know. Sandra

  12. Hello Trish,

    I received the DVD and have watched it….I am now much more confident so thank you! I highly recommend the DVD for anyone keen on producing quality stitching, and also Trish’s beautiful books:)

    Kind regards


  13. Hello Trish
    I was midway through purchasing your DVD online when the Paypal system froze and said there was an error on your site. I had already entered my credit card number and address. Could you please check that you received – or didn’t receive – the order?

    Many thanks


    • Not likely to be a second the first is quite comprehensive and covers everything you need to know on the technique. But I will think on it……..! Trish


  14. Hi Trish

    I would like to buy the DVD but cannot find the price and how to go about it. Please let me know. I live in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro.

    Thanks, Angela


    • Hi Angela To buy the DVD go to my website http://www.trishburr.co.za. Go onto the shop page – scroll down towards the bottom and you will see the DVD. Click on Add to cart and follow the payment instructions. Am not sure if you want the NTSC or PAL format I think Brazil is PAL? There is an option for both on the drop down list of the add to cart.

      Kind regards Trish


  15. Je souhaiterais acheter votre DVD mais j’ aimerais des précisions pour l’obtenir! Je clique sur” cliquer ici pour commander maintenant” sans résultat ! Merci de bien vouloir me donner la marche à suivre. Cordialement. Annick.
