Ah, for the month of May, I’m giving away a nice collection of fun threads, along with a couple little needlework extras…
I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m got this fiber infatuation thing going – I just love embroidery threads! Part of the fun of these stash give-aways is that you get the opportunity to perhaps try out some threads you’ve never used before. So I’ve put together a little collection of different threads here, hoping there’s something new in the batch for your own needlework experimentation!
For threads, you’ll find (left to right) two skeins of Silk ‘n Colors by Thread Gatherer, Gloriana silk, Dinky Dyes silk,and two variegated cottons from Weeks Dye Works.
Two cards of Rainbow Gallery threads are also included.
And, for those who like storage solutions for beads or for needles, how about some needle tubes? These are sold as needle tubes, but I find them equally handy for seed beads. I’ve also used them for non-needlework-related stuff, like a small quantity of balm and olive oil mixed together. No leakage – perfect little tube for traveling.
There’s the whole collection. You’ll also notice a mesh zipper bag in the background, which is great for holding threads for a project. These mesh bags are sturdy, they don’t snag on the threads, they actually have a real zipper (not ziplock), and they breathe.
That’s the give-away for May!
To enter, leave a comment below (on this post on the website, not via e-mail), and in your comment, answer the following the question:
How do you store / arrange your threads for projects? Do you use little bags? Thread rings? Do you wind them on bobbins or cards? Do you loop them through holes on thread cards? What’s your solution for keeping your threads together when you start a project?
