Let's start with Kreinik where I bought CONED threads. Did you know that many of our suppliers would be happy to sell me large amounts of coned or skeined thread? If you have a big background or area to cover, consider buying in bulk. You'll save $$$ and THE DYE LOT WILL MATCH!
Rainbow Gallery had so many new items that I bought one of each color until I know what you want. First of all, they have a new thread called Capri. It's 100% polyester and has a smooth looking matte finish. There are two sizes - for 13 ct. and 18 ct. canvas. There are 25 colors in each size. You have to see it and try it for yourself! I'll have samples available next week. It's the second picture in the second row.
There's a new white Patent Leather I can order for you (no picture below) if you want that white patent leather look on something. Next, they came out with TWENTY-THREE new colors of Entice. You might remember this is the rayon thread with a strand of metallic. I'm telling you, that metallic makes all the difference in the world taming that rayon! I bought a color ring while I make room for all these new threads! Next, FIVE new colors of Rainbow Angora - yummy! This stuff is a delight to work with especially if you have a little area that needs a VERY special soft furry feel. I ordered all 5 new colors of Neon Rays + in Red, Denim, Buttercup, Honey Gold and Sand Gold (no picture shown).
Please don't look for these items on my website yet! If you want any of these, call or email me and I'll set them aside for you as I have more on order.
Picture of Entice is first on top, Angora is on left, second row below this article.
Just to keep us wanting more, Gloriana introduced a new thread of Cashmere and Silk. This 5 yard skein only comes in Fresh Snow and Silver Fox currently but it's soft, delightful and perfect for a Santa's Beard. I'm TAKING ORDERS for this one so be sure to let me know if you want any. At $8 per skein, it's a feel good investment. It's a four strand silk and is pictured below the Rainbow Gallery threads.
There are also NEW silk floss colors from Gloriana and they are pictured. Do you know that we carry all of their silk floss colors?
Dream House Ventures, makers of the wonderful Soy Luster and Baroque Silk came out with 25 NEW overdyed Baroque Silk colors. For those of you that haven't used this silk yet, I recommend it highly for 13 ct. canvas because you can stitch with it AS IS! For 18 ct. you can use two strands for regular coverage or one strand for a "lite" stitching look. These new overdyed colors are SCRUMPTIOUS. Again, I only purchased a color ring (one each) and I'm taking orders until I get my order in. These are $5 each and contain 15 yards of 3 ply silk.
