Running With DMC and Aunt Lydia's Blues

What does DMC stand for and who is Aunt Lydia?

The first thing that comes to mind when one talks about running with DMC is Run DMC, and even though I am not of the HipHop generation, I have heard of this 1980's group.  So, NO, this is not how I 'Run with DMC'.

The next thing to pop up when searching DMC was an 'Action-Adventure Hack and Slash video game.  I won't even go there with the graphics or the name of the Xbox game, but here's a hint on the 'D'...H E double L NO that is not how I run with DMC.

There were a few other DMC icons...for instance 'DeLorean Motor Company'.  I recognized that 'D', and although I could run with a DeLorean, again, not my DMC.  There were other DMC's:  Destination Medical Center, Del Mar College and the entertaining Disney Movie Club.  If you haven't already guessed, my 'Running with DMC' is Fiber related.  Yes, it's Floss, Thread, Yarn and more Needleworks stuff which you can explore on the DMC Website.

 What does DMC stand for, you asked and I wanted to know since I have an inquisitive mind and I suffer from Fiberpsychosis...a disorder of 'OverDoing' Fiber related products.  So here it is...what DMC stands for...
DOLLFUS-MIEG & Compagnie
Now we know, but as usual for Fiberpsychosis sufferers, this was just that one strand
of Blue Floss in the 'Thread Tangle'  that led to untangling the HISTORY 
of a company started in 1746 who's motto remains alive today.
"Tenui Filo Magnum Texitur Opus"
"From one fine thread a work of art is born"
Oh yeah...I definitely 'Run With DMC'!

PS...I am still working on 'Who is Aunt Lydia'.  What I know for sure, she is not related to Dollfus Mieg and in all likelihood she and I have at least one thing in common...Fiberpsychosis!


  1. What beautiful threads! And I don't think they've yet developed a pill for fiberpsychosis. LOL Sweet post!

  2. Aunt Lydia's working on the cure in her garrett. Run DMC sang with Aerosmith - that's the only song I know of theirs. Your DMC is more interesting

  3. A most interesting feature. However, I stayed lost most of the time. Kinda slow with age.

  4. Hi Sue,

    Only one blue thread? I see several more. Thanks for making Blue Monday special by sharing this.

    Have a Beautiful Blue Monday!

  5. DMC - three letters to set a needlewoman's heart aflutter! I have such a collection of skeins - one of these days they will be put in order............

  6. Hi Sue, As always a very cute post. I guessed thread right away. I speak that language and love to embroider. However, I am so bad about finishing what I start. I always say when I am old I will sit and embroider my heart out. Well, I'm old and it hasn't happened. I have hope though. HA!

    Waiting to find out who Aunt Lydia is. smile.
    Hugs, Jeanne
