Now if you love to work with wools and the Valdani threads this next needful thing is for you! This book is only available through Primitive Gatherings as we make them from start to finish in our own warehouse.
In the first section I talk about the different weights of threads, what the letters mean in front of the numbers.
Which needles to use with what threads… Lots of pages to record your three stranded flosses, 5-8-and 12 wt threads.
A little section on wool appliqué and using steam-a-seam2 light. Recommended tools for working with wool.
A section for future threads….Basic Stitch diagrams for all those embroidery stitches, with diagrams the way I stitch them.
A section to list your projects and threads you may need when you get to the quilt show or a shop…
A Note section for projects you want to buy next!!! So you can see this little book has lots of good things that you can keep in your purse for whenever you need it!
So many stitchers are in the booth trying to pick out threads and they don’t know what they already have at home…so now…a great needful thing…Valdani Thread Book!
Thread books are $10. or 2 for $18! We will manually adjust the price if you buy more than one…This would be a great present for your woolie friends! Order your book here VALDANI THREAD BOOK
How are you doing on your Christmas prep? I did a some decorating on Sunday and the tree last night…Here are a few pics of what the Bongean house looks like…sorry these are a little dark…but its been rainy and gloomy. God…Please send us some snow!!! Wisconsin is not good in December without any snow! The snow is very pretty…this rainy mess is not!
I’ve tried to mix it up and use some different quilts this year…I love the scrappy Christmas block quilt that the shop girls made me for Christmas one year…The Christmas Reel quilt is from one of my first fabric lines and is made extrordinary with Linda’s (thequiltedpineapple.com) quilting. The Buggy Barn crazy tree quilt I bought at a benefit action because it was going to go for so little money that I bid a decent amount for it and took it home! It was made by Nancy Dey, Kaukauna WI.
This is the first year I have not shopped for new Christmas decor…that might have something to do with moving in Feb. I will miss this house…we have been here for almost 13 years…that is the longest I have ever lived in one place on my own…Nick & I purchased Northridge when we were still working in the paper mill and before we opened Primitive Gatherings.
