Painters threads have a very unique dying system for their hand-dyed threads and fibers where color is painted on giving each skein varying dots of sparkling colors. Believe me when I say that the colors are so vibrant that the camera can't begin to show how beautiful they are and what a difficult time I had deciding which ones to offer first. Each skein is a work of art named after a famous artist.
As you know, I love to embellish my wool applique and the Painter's Pearl Cotton size 8 is amazing to work with. Since colors are applied in a random manner rather than a set repeat, the variegated colors result in beautiful embellishment stitches.
I have a limited quantity of the Painter's Pearl Cotton in my Etsy shop here.
I sometimes like to add a bit of metallic threads but so many of these embellishment threads are just too much shine for me. I like the metallic to enhance, not overwhelm, my work. Painters Threads also offer a fine metallic braid in amazing colors. Any of your embroidery stitches can be worked in this fine thread for just a hint of sparkle or my favorite is to use it for adding beads with a Coral Stitch.
Find the Painters Metallic Braid in my Etsy shop here.
I have a limited quantity of the threads on hand but don't worry, if I sell out I can have a new supply within a week. Do you have a friend that would love some threads for Christmas or can you sneak them into your own stocking?
As I mentioned yesterday, Etsy gives me limited options on charging postage. If you want to add necklaces, threads and patterns to your order and fill up a flat rate envelope for just $5.00, give me a call at 801-706-4671 to order and we can save on the shipping charges.
