As a kid, one of my favorite things to watch on Television was Mr. Rogers, especially when he had a Speedy Delivery of a cool video of how something was made in a factory. The crayon factory episode in particular had a huge impact on me. I think I’ve just found my grown-up equivalent. DMC Spain, posted about a visit to the DMC embroidery floss factory in eastern France. The pictures and information are fascinating. I have to admit, my heart started to race just looking through them. I now officially have a new item added to my Bucket List: Must visit the DMC Embroidery Floss Factory! The post is in Spanish, but is easily translated with a quick visit to Google Translate. Enjoy!

    Love it Rachel! That was one of my most favorite things too! Mr. Roger’s visit to the crayola factory was the best as a kid. But DMC floss factory, holy, welcome to the room that is in my heart as a twenty-something. :P

    this looks so fascinating! and I just adore Mr Rogers and all the little educational field trips he took us on. but when he would pop in a video and show us how something was made, or go visit a factory, i was riveted! so sad when they took him off the air here in LA. i was enjoying watching him all over again with my kids. he would have had a video of the DMC floss factory for sure! it was so his thing! thank you for sharing!
