I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Gilt Sylke Twist: New Colors Out!


Amazon Books

Well, if you liked the first 8 colors of the Gilt Sylke Twist imported by Access Commodities, through the efforts of the folks at Plimoth Plantation, you’re bound to be just as thrilled as I am about the new colors out!

I am so HAPPY to see the three new colors of GST that have been released and are now available to the public. The colors are Lincolne Green, Sable, and Black.

Gilt Sylke Twist: Lincolne Green, Sable, and Black

I love the bright green – and the sable is a deep dark brown, which looks lovely. Black, of course, is black – but with the gold!! Imagine how this could be incorporated into surface blackwork! Oh gosh. I am just in love with these threads, and these new colors are G-R-E-A-T. I think the two greens out so far will mix well together, too. Just think – leaves, stems… aaah. What bliss!

So – where can you get them?

In the US, you can find Gilt Sylke Twist from any fine needlework shop (local or online) that carries goods from Access Commodities. If your own local shop carries Access Commodities goods, but doesn’t stock GST, you can ask them to special order it for you!
