New Thread!

The Canada Post delivery man was at our door before 7 this morning, with big, heavy boxes of Aurifil thread. It's Christmas morning excitement opening up the boxes.
One box was filled with Mark Lipinski "Basics" collections, which are a fabulous (and economical) way to build a thread stash.
 There are other new collections too, including my favourite "Deep Gems", by Paula Nadelstern.
 The colours are so rich and vibrant.

Also new, is clear monofilament thread, which is great for stitching in the ditch, doing machine applique, or to use in couching specialty threads or yarns. Aurifil's invisible thread is 100% nylon, strong, and non-reflective.  It virtually disappears into your fabric. 
If you are following Pantone's colour of the year, we've got lots of violet!
The new threads have been added to the online store, which you can find here.  Sew Karen-ly Created...offers competitive pricing on these threads, and we are happy to ship anywhere in Canada.


  1. threads, never too many, and those brights, they are beautiful.
