As time permits and as I get my ducks in a row, I hope to publish a chart or a list or whatever you want to call it of all the threads that I either carry in the shop or samples that I have a few of but can get more if you need them. These threads would be suitable for bobbin lace, tatting, cross stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, smocking, or whatever you might need thread for. Threads included would be: Weeks Dye Works, Gentle Art, ThreadworX, Carries Creations, Crescent Colours, Anchor floss, Caron Watercolors - Waterlilies - Wildflowers - Antica - Snow - Rachel - Rachelette, Rainbow Gallery (they have a ton of different fibers), Kreinik, Glissen Gloss, DMC Cebelia and tatting thread, DMC Pearl cotton size 5, 8, 12. It amazes me how many different varieties of thread exist.
