April Spools Day – Tame the Tangle

April Spools Day! We love spools here at Sulky so much that we put our hand embroidery thread on a spool! No more dealing with that tangled mess of floss, no more separating strands (one strand of our 12 Wt. Cotton thread equals two strand of regular embroidery floss) and no waste!

It’s the same, great, Sulky Solid Color and Blendables 12 wt. Cotton Thread you know and love – but on a “petite” 50 yd. snap-end spool.

    Love the Sulky 12 wt spools! I’ve been collecting them for a few years, I keep them in a special plastic “pencil box” with a pack of embroidery needles and a small pair of scissors. Soon I’m going to have to move up to a larger box. ;o)

    I’m aiming to do some hand embroidered accents on linen clothing that I want to make for myself – mostly tunics to wear with slacks. My Viking Quilt Designer machine has some nice embroidery stitches that work well with the Sulky 12 wt and I have made three baby quilts and sold them – bluework, redwork, and pinkwork. Hand embroidery takes time, but it’s a wonderful way to relax and wind down.

    Love the Sulky products and the blog.
