Bling Thread
  • Also needed for the class

    You will select your own favorite color of sewing thread from your stash at home. It must be cotton or poly/cotton. Do not try to use rayon. Also needed at your home are sewing snips, 6 straight pins, and one normal sewing needle. The rest of the materials will be sent to you in this kit :-).

  • How to select your colors

    I've had a tussel with the plumbing of this wix website, and have finally (!) found a way to let you choose your colors. 

    • The "bling thread" is chosen as a normal 'drop-down' pruchase option. That's the flashy thread you see in example of the class photo as sparkly gold.
    • You will see 2 'customization' fields when you purchase the kit; specify the colors you wish from the lists below.
    •  As you see in the class photo, the color of sewing thread (which you will choose from what you have at home) will be seen as 'background' – in the example of the class picture, it is burgundy. This is the sewing thread you have chosen from your stash at home.
    • "Color one": The main stitching color is what you select when you specify 'color one' – in the class picture, it is royal blue. Type in the color you want from the list below.
    • "Color two": The secondary stitching color is what you select when you specify color 2 – it the class picture it is the light blue. Type in the color you want from the list below.
    • Since the website does not allow me to inventory anything but the Bling threads,  I will babysit :-) the color offerings as the orders come in, and TRY to have a color dissapear from the list once my stock of it is gone. Please have patience with me, if I fall behind (or am asleep when the order comes in) and cannot furfill a color selection you have requested!
    • Of course, you are free to add to the colors in this kit with any size 5 pearle cotton (or even embroidery floss in a pinch) that you may have at home.
