Oh, I just got the most beautiful package of Painter’s Threads & trims! Every time I get a new shipment I just drool as I open the box. All of these threads are hand painted in Germany & have the most beautiful colors imaginable! Each one is named after a famous painter from one of their paintings, such as Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, Picasso’s Starry Night, Monet’s Water Lilies and many more. I have been using these for several years now on all my hand embroidery projects. Currently I am using them on my Crazy Quilt BOM & the Sue Spargo BOM’s I am working on. They really give the stitches more pizzazz as they slightly change color with the variegation as you stitch. I also love the hand painted rick-rack & the twill tape for making all sorts of embellishments. It is fun to just sit & play with them to create unique art! They range in price from $7.50 – $15.00 each. Contact me if you would like some for your collection. And I almost forgot to tell you about the Metallic Braid Thread! It stitches so nicely & does not break or shred.
