It’s Friday! It’s Spring! It’s my birthday! And it’s a Perfect Day for a Give-Away!
And not just any give-away, but a thread give-away. Yes, that’s right! I’m going to help you feed your embroidery thread addiction!
When it comes to Tangible Things, there’s nothing better than embroidery thread, right? I have a serious infatuation with threads, and I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing.
The most appealing aspect of embroidery thread, to me, is the color, and no one does unique, hand-dyed color quite like Colour Compliments, a small embroidery thread business in Canada.
Lorraine at Colour Complements has announced a clearance sale at Colour Complements starting today, and, to kick it off, she thought it would be fun to give Needle ‘n Thread readers a chance to win some of her threads. I wholeheartedly agreed. Any time I have a chance to get thread into an enthusiastic stitcher’s hands, I’m all over it!
Lorraine’s been producing some new color lines for this year and she’s discontinuing a few types of threads, so it’s time to make some space for the new additions. Hence, the sale. It’s a great way to pick up some fun hand-dyed threads for your embroidery, needlepoint, crazy quilting projects…
My favorite threads from Colour Complements? I love the cotton embroidery floss. It’s hard to narrow down favorite colors, but if I had to, I’d say all the greens and “Colour #1,” which reminds me of summer, lemonade, flowers and sunshine.
The perle cottons are wonderful additions to any thread stash and can be used in all kinds of embroidery pursuits. I especially like sizes 8 and 12 for surface embroidery. And size 5 works great for canvas work, bold crazy quilt seams, and for what I call “chunky stitching” in surface embroidery.
