If you’re looking for goldwork threads, or interested in getting into goldwork and you don’t quite know what real metal threads are what, you’ll want to check out the Products List on the Access Commodities website. There, you’ll find a list of goldwork threads distributed by Access Commodities, and – better yet – you’ll find photos of the individual types of real metal threads.
In addition to the regular gold and silver real metal threads, you’ll also be able to see the colored metal threads that are available.
Access Commodities does not sell to the public, but if you see a real metal thread that you like on their website, you can always check with your local needlework shop to see if it’s something they can order. If not, you can purchase online through sources like Hedgehog Handworks, which carries a large selection on their website – and if you don’t find it on the site, you can always contact them and special order.
What I like about the list on the Access Commodities site is that you can actually see the threads. They are photographed in the boxes, with a ruler below to give you a sense of the size of the thread.
I think this is a really good resource for folks who are wondering what different goldwork threads look like, as the various types available can get somewhat confusing.
So, if you’re interested in goldwork and want to know what’s out there, you might start by taking a look at the Access Commodities website! I find it a pretty useful resource, and I hope you do, too!
Have a terrific Labor Day weekend! I’m planning on catching up with some stitching, setting up a project, and Cleaning The Studio – the latter of which is on the top of my list! (Which doesn’t necessarily mean much!) How about you? I hope you can get some stitching in!
