Well, as you know I have not been a very dedicated blogger these last few months… With the release of our new line of pearl cotton threads comes the explanation. Over the last several months it feels like every single hour I am not at the office I am at home tangled in threads! How did this happen you may ask… Well lets see… I believe I was having a not so fantastic day- perhaps a little frustrated- because I couldn’t get the threads I wanted when I wanted. Looking back I was probably being a little bratty. I recall calling my mom who was on the road and saying, ‘that’s it- I’m just going to do it myself’! So with that I began looking for a perfect base and began experimenting with the colors. I have had a few massive fails and probably a few minor temper tantrums, but all in all I must say I am pretty proud of myself! Looking at the whole picture this is actually the perfect addition to the 100% cotton threads we already carry. We have Valdani size 8, Painter’s Threads which are a size 3, and my threads which are a size 5 (a bit larger than our Valdani). To set my threads apart I decided that I really needed to focus on one thing that I wished was more readily available but couldn’t really find- short variegations. Needless to say I now know why that is- dyeing short variegations is not so easy… However I have accomplished it! In the beginning of August I released my first 6 colors- Shredded Denim, Mint Mojito, In the Cabana, Hot African Sun, Hip Hop & Pop Rocks and Whined & Dined (yes Whined- not Wined).
I am hoping to add a few more colors in September which I will be working on- well- in a few hours! I hope you all get a chance to try my new threads and enjoy working with them as much as we do!
