Warning: this post is for needlework geeks only
I wanted to add some metallic accents to my art deco piece so I’m using Kreinik silver thread. I’ve used this thread before but not the “very fine #4” braid. It is so lovely to work with! It works up just like regular perle cotton.
Jenny over at Sublime Stitching also carries Kreinik threads in just amazing colors. She carries the #8 braid, which is a little heavier. It is nice to work with and gives you better coverage. I just find that I’m using smaller and smaller thread with each project so… I’ll be emailing Jenny though, and will try to convince her to carry the #4 because I like buying from small businesses and Jenny rocks. In the meantime, I bought mine at the local craft store where they carry silver and gold. Boring.
Okay, I’m done geeking out over thread…
