This month’s stash give-away is really perfect for building your embroidery stash – and the perfect opportunity to try a variety of needlework fibers! I’m giving away a dozen embroidery threads, each a different type.
All twelve threads are full skeins, never used before. They’re new! And they’re fun!
Here’s the whole give-away….
Half the give-away is comprised of silk. There’s Gloriana, Dinky-Dyes, Silk ‘n Colors from Thread Gatherer, Needlepoint Inc Silk, Empress Silk, and a whole spool of Japanese Silk from the Japanese Embroidery Center.
The other half of the give-away is made up of synthetics, cotton, wool, and soy.
There’s Needle Necessities Cotton, Overdyed Rachel, Charleston (the sparkly stuff), and wool, plus a skein of Soy Luster, and a skein of Caron Watercolors.
The hues in this half of the stash are pretty much purples and pinks.
So, if you’re a fiber fanatic or a thread junkie, you might enjoy picking up 12 new skeins of a variety of threads, to dabble with! If you’re new to the whole needlework field, this is the perfect opportunity to give some different threads a try, for the fun of it. If you’re a crazy quilter – well! What couldn’t you do with these threads? And maybe there’s just one thread in there you’re dying to try – if that’s the case, go for it! You can always pass the rest on to someone else to play with! And, if nothing else, this would make a nice little package for you to share with another needlework friend – you can always make a little gift out of parts of it (or all of it!).
